The U.S. Ski Team recently returned from their first training camp of the season in Bend, Ore. The camp served as fresh start for the team as they work to become the most technically improved team on the World Cup circuit this season.
The U.S. and Canadian national teams currently in Bend, Ore., for their spring camps had an unstructured training session at Mt. Bachelor this weekend. Mt. Bachelor Ski Education Foundation nordic director and 3-time Olympian Dan Simoneau snapped photos of junior skiers and World Cup athletes alike ski laps around the trails.
Most of the U.S. Ski Team reunited this week in Bend, Ore., for their first spring training camp of the year. The group set to work on snow at Mt. Bachelor to get ready for next season, and anticipation for the Olympic Games in February is already building. "It's definitely a big motivator," says Andy Newell. "You want to make every interval session count."
