I would have to say this was one of the most fun and successful camps that I have ever attended! It was a great group of people, five girls and five boys, and an awesome duo of coaches. Mother Ben Husaby and Chris Mallory. The week started out with adventures right away. The house we were living in was a house previously rented by Zach and Amy Caldwell in Squamish. They had moved out several months ago, but were still paying rent. So, basically the house was unlived in. We arrived in Squamish, ten at night, not really sure what house we were trying to find, and no key. We pulled the van into a dark driveway, concluding this must be the house and started looking for ways to break in. Finally we ended up giving the garage door an extra hard kick and lifting it up, finding a way into the house. The house was completely empty with one bed, one bathroom, no furniture and no cooking utensils for the twelve of us. We spent the next day at the dollar store and Walmart looking for stuff to eat off of and things to decorate the house with. That night consisted of drawing contests and a little artistic interior design with limited supplies. We found some random pieces of furniture and an old mattress in the garage providing some area to rest on between practices./pa onblur=”try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}” href=”http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_l4L_01UOs1s/SqQInobQU_I/AAAAAAAAAI0/UtjGbYijQ5w/s1600-h/6832_125548758345_94229733345_2343506_5374546_n.jpg”img src=”http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_l4L_01UOs1s/SqQInobQU_I/AAAAAAAAAI0/UtjGbYijQ5w/s320/6832_125548758345_94229733345_2343506_5374546_n.jpg” border=”0″ alt=”” id=”BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5378433331946869746″ style=”display: block; margin-top: 0px; margin-right: auto; margin-bottom: 10px; margin-left: auto; text-align: center; cursor: pointer; width: 240px; height: 320px; ” //ap class=”MsoNormal” style=”text-align: center;”span class=”Apple-style-span” style=”font-weight: bold;”F/spanspan class=”Apple-style-span” style=”font-weight: bold;”ollowing World class skier Kikkan Randall during sprint race./span/pa onblur=”try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}” href=”http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_l4L_01UOs1s/SqQIf6tOsoI/AAAAAAAAAIs/omvJTCDQdns/s1600-h/6832_125548743345_94229733345_2343503_7659737_n.jpg”img src=”http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_l4L_01UOs1s/SqQIf6tOsoI/AAAAAAAAAIs/omvJTCDQdns/s320/6832_125548743345_94229733345_2343503_7659737_n.jpg” border=”0″ alt=”” id=”BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5378433199415145090″ style=”display: block; margin-top: 0px; margin-right: auto; margin-bottom: 10px; margin-left: auto; text-align: center; cursor: pointer; width: 320px; height: 214px; ” //ap class=”MsoNormal” style=”text-align: center;”span class=”Apple-style-span” style=”font-weight: bold; “Rollerski course at Olympic Venue/spanbr //pp class=”MsoNormal” The training was great. Most days we drove the 35 minutes to the Olympic venue in Callaghan Valley and joined up with the US Ski Team members and coaches along with some Sun Valley Olympic Development Team members for the workout of the day. It was really nice to get some technique advice from the coaches and also very motivating to jump in behind the US girls for the workouts. We got in four good intensity sessions over the course of the week, a race, a distance double pole workout, and some nice long easy distance skis. Most days we spent the afternoon doing various strength workouts, running, and some extreme soccer games around Squamish. Many times we found ourselves playing soccer as late as eight o’clock because everybody was too into the game to stop. We played east of the Mississippi skiers against west of the Mississippi skiers. Our games were constant sprinting across the field and at times got a little rough, but a good solid workout. We were smart enough to cook our dinner during the day so that we could come home long past dinnertime and quickly get the dinner of the day in the oven. Cooking was tough with limited supplies but always an adventure in and of itself. Often times dinner turned into a competition of which group of people could cook the best lasagna or who made the better mashed potatoes. We were constantly entertained but very productive during training. One night we invited the US coaches down to our homey little house for dinner and technique review for the week. We got a nice talk about the developmental pipeline and how every day counts towards our end goal from head US coach Pete Vordenburg. br //pp class=”MsoNormal”Erik and I came away from the camp confident in our training and even more motivated to start our fall training! We learned lots and brought home some good suggestions to weave into our training plans.
