Alpine Race Training and Development

The U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association (USSA) is the national governing body of Olympic skiing and snowboarding.  It is the parent organization of the U.S. Ski Team, U.S. Snowboarding and U.S. Freeskiing. At A-Basin USSA recently held a development camp for many of the top 14-18 year old alpine ski racers in the country.  From 6 - 9 AM, athletes were training on GS and Super G courses on the Upper Mountain. This opportunity gave many athletes and their coaches a chance to train with the USSA coaching staff.  Personally, I always enjoy watching these athletes grow and prosper.  And they know how to turn a ski.
