Former Olympian gets Park City Ski Team moving
October 16, 2015
It’s time to prepare for the ski season and there is no better way to do it than with a former ski racing great. A two-time Olympian and the founder of ELITEAM Conditioning Camps, Doug Lewis was the guest coach on Oct. 9 for Park City Ski Team’s U14 athletes at City Park. He led the young ski racers through agility exercises and obstacle courses, sharing insights on how to improve agility and how visualization can help them on the slopes.
"Doug is a fantastic role model and inspirational figure for these young skiers," said Jesse Hunt, PCST director. "But, more importantly, he makes dryland conditioning for skiing challenging and fun. The kids received some great insight and had a blast."
Alpine ski racing is fast and physically challenging, which makes the offseason a critical time to prepare for both improved performance and injury prevention. The U14 athletes have been training four days a week to prepare for their season and guest coach experiences like Doug’s visit truly enhance the program.
Lewis will be offering more conditioning camps beginning in June.
