The Eliteam Camp Staff of Vermont
I love receiving letters from the kids and parents after camp. The campers tell me how much they loved camp and say they can't wait until next year. The parents report their kids have made so many positive changes in how they eat, train, and think. Hearing that inspires us to keep coming back year after year.
Favorite Eliteam workout:
Sandpits, always exciting! And circuits in the gym... the entire camp together, legs burning, music blaring... awesome!

Junior racer in Canada, then moved to Vermont to live the ski academy life. Raced in a World Cup DH in '91 as part of the Canadian National Development Team. It was an honor to be a "Crazy Canuck" for just one day! Later raced for the University of Vermont.
Other Sports/Activities I like:
Love biking, road or mountain. Gap rides are a favorite. Early morning skinning adventures on the mountain in the Winter. In the Fall, hiking up the mountain during peak foliage and then taking the lift down is always a treat.
As an athlete, I'm inspired by:
Thirty years ago I would have answered differently, but now it's simply... "the great outdoors". The mountains, country roads, sunrises, and fresh air inspire me to get out there and enjoy it. The simple act of being active outside encourages a positive attitude, hard work and goal-setting. It feels good to be strong and healthy.
GMVS weekend program in VT, Rowmark Ski Academy in UT. Have also coached plenty of "older kids"... masters, ski bums, college camps & women's clinics.
Favorite Power food/fuel:
Banana and almond butter smoothie.
Favorite Eliteam dance move:
"007" & flight attendant.
There are no guarantees, but get out there and give it your best shot! No regrets.
