US Ski Team Goes East

At the Lake Placid Olympic Training Center a banner in the foyer greets patrons:

The US Olympic Committee wish America’s best continued success as you challenge yourself to be the World’s best.

Remember always that “the will to win is nothing without the will to prepare.”

With this mission in mind, the U.S. challenged themselves and teammates in a thirteen day training camp in Lake Placid. For the fourth consecutive year the US team has chosen Upstate New York as its fourth, and final, training camp. “Lake Placid is a fall tradition,” says National Team Coach Justin Wadsworth. “It’s an ideal situation here. Everyone is really dialed in. The terrain is perfect for training. The athletes know exactly what to expect — they know the roads they’re rollerskiing, the hills their bounding. They come right in and get the work done.”
