divp class=”MsoNormal”I arrived in New Paltz yesterday with Adam and Amy. We made the journey east to attend a camp being put on by Nick Mancuso. Other coaches at the camp include myself, Janiceb span class=”Apple-style-span” style=”font-weight: normal; “Sabila , Art Stegan, and Jon Stern. I was a little hesitant as I got off 87 and was instantly stuck in the New Paltz traffic but to my surprise as soon as we turned off the main drag we were smack-dab in the middle of the picturesque st1:place st=”on”st1:placename st=”on”Hudson/st1:placename st1:placetype st=”on”Valley/st1:placetype/st1:place. The Mancuso’s have a sweet set up right on the banks of the river and it provides an excellent base camp! /span/b/pp class=”MsoNormal”b/b/pp class=”MsoNormal”o:p/o:p/pp class=”MsoNormal”After arriving and a short camp meeting it was time to get down to business. We broke the athletes up in to small groups and focused on technique. We utilized the coaches and set up three separate stations with each station focusing on specific technique V1, V2, and Alt. We were also able to have a coach drive around to each group and video the athletes. Things were off to a great start!!/pp class=”MsoNormal”o:p/o:p/pp class=”MsoNormal”When we had finished the ski we jumped in to the cars and headed up the road a mile or so and swapped our boots for the sneakers and started out on our run/hike/rock scramble/bad ass workout!!!!! We ran from the cars up to Mohonk Mnt House!/p/divdiva onblur=”try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}” href=”http://www.mohonk.com/images/photogallery/Familyinboat.jpg” style=”text-decoration: none;”img style=”cursor:pointer; cursor:hand;width: 563px; height: 375px;” src=”http://www.mohonk.com/images/photogallery/Familyinboat.jpg” border=”0″ alt=”” //a/divdiva onblur=”try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}” href=”http://www.mohonk.com/images/photogallery/Familyinboat.jpg” style=”text-decoration: none;”/abr /p class=”MsoNormal”This place is for strait up balers!!! With rooms in the $300-600 range!! But we were able to take advantage of the great views and the rock scramble they have set up to make our way up to the fire tower! It was an epic adventure and the entire way up all I could think about was how awesome NY really is!! This state has is all and though I often find myself bitching about lack of snow, the size of the state and the fact it takes 5 hours to drive to a local race this state is truly amazing and impresses me more and more with all it has to offer. I wish I had my camera but the threatening skies forced me to leave it at the car. I will link in some photos from the Mnt Houses website but they don’t even do the place justice! Not to mention that during the winter there are over 50k of groomed trails at this joint!!!!!!!! I gotta make a trip out here when the white stuff is flying!/p p class=”MsoNormal”o:p /o:p/p p class=”MsoNormal”That’s it for now I gotta get out of Starbuck and back to the ranch to wake the kids up!!!
