FasterSkierJune 23, 2007

APUNSC Athletes had nothing but sunshine, sweet tracks, good food, and sunburns from the first glacier camp of the season!

Last week was the first of four scheduled on-snow camps planned for the 2007 summer training season. If everything goes according to plan, athletes will have had a total of 28 days on snow come fall.

Camp Highlights included:

-a quality big-hour week for everyone (18-25 hours)

-Valuable video sessions

-Taz Mannix’s 21st birthday! (Happy Birthday Taz!!)

-Lifting weights on the glacier (we brought an entire weight bench up to the glacier via helicopter sling-load!)

The Thomas Training Center is located on Eagle Glacier, just 45 minutes south of Anchorage. Athletes take a 10-minute helicopter ride and arrive at the facility which features 24 beds, an industrial kitchen, a sauna, and 9 kilometers of groomed track.
