APU skiers just finished their third week-long camp on Eagle Glacier with sunny skies and excellent skiing conditions. Similar to the two previous camps the main focus was to ski a lot (volume) and to keep improving on-snow technique.
Can this really be Eagle Glacier in August?!
With one more on-snow camp under our belt we are confident our skiers have a good start to fall training. Since the month of May some of our athletes have had as many as 125 quality on-snow hours. In the spring we took advantage of early morning Alaskan crust-cruising and during the summer we spent a week each in June, July, and August on Eagle glacier. Our snow skiing has allowed us to stay in touch with the feeling of snow — something that simply cannot be accomplished on roller skis.
We have knowledgeable coaches and a group of dedicated athletes that are training hard and training a lot. The team atmosphere is pushing skiers to challenge themselves while maintaining their focus the entire time. We are looking forward to the winter ahead!
