VIDEO: Mikaela Shiffrin Checks In While Training @ Copper Mountain

By

Quick update from Mikaela as she begins her summer training regimen at Copper Mountain. Happy to report everyone is adapting and  following social distancing guidelines. Great to see our athletes back out there shredding for the USA!

“There are so many athletes out there who are not able to practice their sports at all, so many people who are still hardly even able to get outside, so trust me I know how lucky we were to get even a little bit of training on-snow the past two weeks.
Many of our competing nations have had access to training on-snow over the last month and will continue to have that throughout the summer on the glaciers, some competitors were never forced to go off-snow at all, and still some have yet to touch their skis and may not have the chance until the fall or winter, so I am incredibly grateful to be among those who have been able to click into my skis for any amount of time at all.
I want to send a huge THANK YOU to Copper Mountain and U.S. Ski & Snowboard for joining forces and putting in such a big effort to make this camp so productive for everyone involved, while still keeping us safe and healthy. Given everything that is going on in the world, it is absolutely incredible that this even happened and we do not take that for granted. Thank you.”
