The ski racing community mourns the loss of one of its members, Eric Keck, a U.S. Ski Team downhiller in the 80s and 90s who died suddenly on Wednesday, July 9 at the age of 52.
Eric went to Burke Mountain Academy and Gren Mountain Valley School (GMVS) in Vermont, prior to making it to the U.S. Ski Team. His career on the FIS Ski World Cup was short, but it was sweet—at 245 pounds, Eric opted to leave the Team in 1991 to attend college and instead play football. Eric was the "biggest" downhiller in the history of the World Cup.
U.S. Ski Team alumna, winningest female alpine ski racer of all time and Land Rover ambassador Lindsey Vonn and her fiance, star defenseman New Jersey Devils, PK Subban, recently joined former NFL linebacker Emmanuel Acho along with The Bachelorette stars Rachel Lynn Lindsay Abasolo and Bryan Abasolo on Emmanuel's "Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man" series on Instagram.
Four-time Olympian and U.S. Alpine Ski Team alumnus and 2010 skicross Olympian Casey Puckett recently concluded a collective nine years of coaching Aspen Valley Ski & Snowboard Club (AVSC) athletes, returning to the Land Rover U.S. Alpine Ski Team as head technical coach for the women's Europa Cup team. Austin Colbert, from the Aspen Times, recently caught up with Casey to talk about his return to U.S. Ski & Snowboard.
The Land Rover U.S. Alpine Ski Team men's speed team recently concluded their first on-snow prep camp for the 2020-21 season with a five-day giant slalom-focused camp at Official Training Site Timberline Resort & Ski Area in Mt. Hood, Ore.
Led by head men's speed coach Randy Pelkey, assisted by longtime speed coach Scotty Veenis and men's team manager Gwynn Watkins, athletes included Olympians Steven Nyman, Travis Ganong, and Bryce Bennett, as well as World Junior downhill champion Sam Morse and former University of Utah NCAA giant slalom standout Sam Dupratt.
The Modern Wellness Guide recently launched their Women in Sports Campaign, featuring four of the top athletes in the snowsports industry and two female coaches who are leading the way, including Olympic gold medalists Mikaela Shiffrin and Maddie Bowman, Olympic bronze medalist Brita Sigourney, and seven-time X Games gold medalist Maggie Voisin.
We all know U.S. Snowboard Team athletes can ride on snow, but do these skills translate to other boardsports? Scanning athlete Instagrams this off-season sure would make you think so. Skateboarding, surfing, wakeboarding and wake surfing may not be mentioned word for word in their training regiments, but there are clear crossover skills and style that makes for a very pleasant Instagram viewing experience.
When the Land Rover U.S. Alpine Ski Team returned to snow recently at Official Training Site Copper Mountain, Colo., they didn't know what to expect. Colorado in early June, in one of the hottest summers to date?! But, the Copper Mountain and U.S. Ski & Snowboard staff pulled it off together, and it was a productive camp.
