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.
June Camp Roster:
Coaches: Erik Flora, Frode Lillefjell, and Casey Fagerquist
