Training Update

To say it was a bit breezy out there today really isn’t doing it any justice! However heavy the winds or soft the snow, it was still a great day of training. Again mostly down to the determination and effort of our athletes! After working on the lower half of the mountain on SL skills, our guys were treated to an impromptu game of soccer against some of the NSWIS X-C crew. (Pleased to say that in a tight, fiercely contested match, Alpine came out in front!) Tomorrow (Fri 1st August): Strong winds should be easing and temperatures dropping overnight so conditions are looking more favourable. 8am – Movement Prep 8.30am – SL Gates/Drills/TFS But please be ready for anything! Enjoy your last sleep in (Early mornings recommencing Saturday, weather pending), see you in the...
