11 Dec Western Training Camp Report
Five Ontario para alpine skiers joined with a few para athletes from the west to participate in training camp at Sunshine and Norquay, at the end of November. Mark Newton from ACA and Jamie McCullogh from Rocky Mountain Adaptive were on hand to take the lead in the training. The main emphasis of the camp, was to help our 15 year olds adjust to the longer GS skis with a 30 metre radius, that are required for Para racers. The Ontario crew went on to Panorama, and our first WPAS race of the
World Para Alpine Ski races are open to those with an IPC license. World Cup racers from all over the world were there, as these race points help some to qualify for the upcoming Paralympics in Korea. It was a great opportunity to see some of the best para alpine skiers in the world.
