Training 8/20 – 8/26: (last week of Summer Training)

  • Monday: 8:30 – 10:30am. Classic rollerski at the Range.
  • Wednesday: 8:30 – 10:30am. Running & skiing at CVU. Bring rock skis (classic) and poles/boots. Fun relays!
  • Thursday: 5:00 – 7:00pm. Skate rollerski at the Range.
  • Saturday: 9:00 – 11:00am. TBD.

Here are some pictures from last Wednesday. We did the make-up DP test on Wednesday, as well as a lot of classical technique work.  At the end of training we had an informal awards ceremony to honor Henry Harmeyer and Ben Hegman. Both of these boys earned All American status at Junior Nationals last year for their podium performances. Congrats guys!

Yesterday we started hiking Mt Mansfield on a chilly morning that turned into a beautiful sunny day. Going up the west side of the mountain (from Underhill), we were stuck in the clouds the entire time. We flanked the summit via the Profanity Trail and as we moved towards the Stowe side of the mountain we encountered beautiful views. Back on the summit, it was sunny in one direction (East) and cloudy/windy to the West. Everything cleared off just after we began our descent down the Sunset Ridge Trail. We finished with a bunch of mini-donuts and donut holes.

Coach Alice Nelson leads the girls – working on high hands while double-poling.
