Our program is tailored to involve athletes in ski focused dryland training activities prior to the on-snow season. Activities will be geared towards increasing strength, balance and agility to help them build a stronger foundation for the upcoming season. The planned activities will corporate hiking in our Edmonton River Valley ravine system on single track trails, stairs and bridges. Using natural features in our ravine and park systems for balance and agility work. Recognizing that ski racing may be an individually judged sport the focus will always be on the athletes learning to develop a team concept.
