The Men’s XC ski team is inviting athletes from all around the country to join them for a virtual training camp. Men, Women, and athletes of all ages are encouraged to join in on one of the US Ski Teams toughest training weeks of the year.

Athletes and clubs attending the virtual training camp can also post video’s and photos on the US Ski Team XC Menfacebook page to show us your progress throughout the training week and be entered to win prizes including US Ski Team appeal, Rudy Project sunglasses, Swix water bottle holders, and more. Specific video and photo contests will be outlined on the US Ski Team XC Men facebook page before the start of the camp on October 3rd.
Quotes from Men’s US Ski Team XC Men
“We are excited to use this training challenge as a way to encourage skiers from around the country to commit to intense ski training for one week.”
“ Most of the training we do is very basic and a lot of people don’t realize it. This training challenge will consist of workouts that anyone can do no matter which part of the country they’re in.”
“We all know skiing isn’t just an individual sport, the more people you have to train along side you and push each other the better. This virtual training camp will be a great way to educate young skiers to the kind of training it takes to become a US Ski Team Athlete.”
