Anthony Lakes Training Camp

Monday, June 15th, 2009

The Sun Valley Comp Team just wrapped up its first training camp of the season, an on-snow camp, over at Anthony Lakes Ski Area in Eastern Oregon.  It was an ideal camp location set in the rolling foothills of the blue mountains.  We were able to rent a house 20 minutes from the skiing which sat up at 7,500 ft on the Anthony Lakes Touring Center Trails.  For one week we had no distractions, it was a life of training, eating, resting and Bananagrams.  Our focus for the week was classic technique work, base fitness, and building as a team.  After an especially wet last few weeks, the snow was going fast, but we managed a few solid days of classic skiing before hitting to the roads and trails on rollerskis and mountain bikes.  Click the link for a short video from our week of training: camp video
