Gatekeeper Review

 

A word on Time Trials: Each skier gets three runs in the course. After we get three runs we total the times of the two fastest runs. 

Strategies for Time Trials: Finish the first two runs so that you can go all out on run 3. With two good runs done already, there is no pressure other than to go faster. If you have trouble in the course (miss a gate, straddle a gate) stay with it, forget about your trouble and refocus. HIKE if you need to. If you had trouble in one of your first two runs, put together a fast and solid third run, so you can get a good total time. If you struggle on two of your three runs, understand that we need finishers who will get our team points. 

I never like to tell a racer to go slow, after all we are called racers. But by being a consistent finisher, you will gain confidence and earn valuable points for the team. 

 

We will be visiting the EDDs or Every Day Drills this week.

Through the Year with the Jackson Hole Ski Team

 

A quick quote from this New Yorker article about the Shiffrins.
The Shiffrins were disciples of the ten-thousand-hours concept; the 2009 Daniel Coyle book “The Talent Code” was scripture. They studied the training methods of the Austrians, Alpine skiing’s priesthood. The Shiffrins wanted to wring as much training as possible out of every minute of the day and every vertical foot of the course. They favored deliberate practice over competition. They considered race days an onerous waste: all the travel, the waiting around, and the emotional stress for two quick runs. They insisted that Shiffrin practice honing her turns even when just skiing from the bottom of the racecourse to the chairlift. Most racers bomb straight down, their nonchalance a badge of honor.
Jeff Shiffrin said, “One of the things I learned from the Austrians is: every turn you make, do it right. Don’t get lazy, don’t goof off. Don’t waste any time. If you do, you’ll be retired from racing by the time you get to ten thousand hours.” 
“Here’s the thing,” Mikaela told me one day. “You can’t get ten thousand hours of skiing. You spend so much time on the chairlift. My coach did a calculation of how many hours I’ve been on snow. We’d been overestimating. I think we came up with something like eleven total hours of skiing on snow a year. It’s like seven minutes a day. Still, at the age of twenty-two, I’ve probably had more time on snow than most. I always practice, even on the cat tracks or in those interstitial periods. My dad says, ‘Even when you’re just stopping, be sure to do it right, maintaining a good position, with counter-rotational force.’ These are the kinds of things my dad says, and I’m, like, ‘Shut up.’ But if you say it’s seven minutes a day, then consider that thirty seconds that all the others spend just straight-lining from the bottom of the racecourse to the bottom of the lift: I use that part to work on my turns. I’m getting extra minutes.
