U.S. Ski & Snowboard Domestic Summer On-Snow Training
U.S. Ski & Snowboard is working closely with several domestic ski areas, including Mt. Bachelor and Official Training Site Timberline Lodge & Ski Area, to coordinate summer on-snow training camp opportunities for its national teams.
All sanctioned U.S. Ski & Snowboard training camps will be subject to a rigorous set of criteria adhering to local, state and federal public health orders as well as the United States Olympic and Paralympic Committee (USOPC) return to training guidelines to ensure the safety of its athletes and staff.
“We are thankful to our resort partners for providing our athletes an opportunity to get back on snow as they prepare for the 2020-21 season,” said U.S. Ski & Snowboard President and CEO Tiger Shaw. “This opportunity provides them not only crucial training time, but the opportunity to test new equipment, work on new technique and tricks, and mentally prepare themselves for athletic competition under the ‘new normal.’”
U.S. Ski & Snowboard sanctioned training camp attendance is optional. U.S. Ski & Snowboard athletes and staff should not feel pressure to travel to train. All sanctioned training camp policies and protocols are subject to change based on local, state and federal public health orders, updated guidance from the USOPC or updated U.S. Ski & Snowboard policies.
