Day 2 at the American Downhiller Speed camp in Mammoth!
Today’s focus was on mental strength since the athletes began jumping and running gates. Both visualization and positive self-talk help when undertaking new / intimidating challenges. Having mental toughness both to overcome physical obstacles as well as mental obstacles is so important for ski racers! Everyone crushed the jump and we had a great time. Conditions were fantastic!
We also got started with the AD pole project! Speedy Archer arrived last night and has been custom bending poles since. Each camper gets a custom American Downhiller DH set of poles – so cool!
