Alpine Ability Updates - February 4th, 2020


Dear U16 and FIS Athletes and Parents:
Please note that this weekend is expected to be very hectic with both weather and Dew Tour disruptions. Allow plenty of time to get to Copper for training.
Also note that if you use the small 15 min parking lot that is in Center Village adjacent to the parking garage for drop off – please do not use the spaces past the rope and sign that indicates the lot is for residents and guests of the nearby condos only. We’ve been informed that they will be booting and enforcing their $1,500 parking penalty.

A big shout out and thank you to Copper Mt. who are providing excellent training opportunities for our TSC athletes! Use of OreDeal and the extension to the 250M start are available on a daily basis.

A big thank you also to our athletes and staff for their help in maintaining the venue, setting nets and daily slipping of training courses! The work goes a long way to improving our training environment and showing our pride in our training venue. Thank you!!

Spring and Summer on-snow Training Camps
The dates have been set for 2020 ski training camps! Please save the dates for your summer training!

Details and enrollment will be available in the next few weeks.

Spring: April 25 to May 17 – Summit County Location
Due to the construction replacing Peru lift slated to take place this summer, the annual Area 51 training camp will be moved to another location at Keystone or elsewhere in Summit County. Utilizing local snow for up to 18 days of preparation period on-snow training is the most efficient and economical training possible. The foundation for improvement and the following “away” camps will be laid during this time.
Summer: June 6-20 – Mammoth Mountain
Leveraging IKON Passes (either 2019-20 or 2020-21), home style meals and offering included van transportation keeps summer camp costs as low as possible. Mammoth provides excellent terrain and conditions hosting various National Team and club groups throughout June.
Late Summer: August 3-18 – Stelvio, Italy
Following the successful 2019 camp we will return to Stelvio for a two week training block at the end of summer. Optimal training slopes and great organization and our wonderful hosts at the Hotel Perego just steps from the lifts make for a productive and memorable experience. This camp should not SUBSTITUTE for one of the earlier camps but should be an ADDITION to the progression throughout the preparation period building with each experience.
