Ski Racing Magazine recently caught up with women's technical Head Coach Roland Pfeifer following a recent on snow camp at New Zealand's Coronet Peak.
PARK CITY, UT (Aug. 27) - Warmer than expected conditions meant softer snow than the women’s tech team had hoped for in New Zealand, but it was a productive camp at Coronet Peak, nevertheless.
"Unfortunately, we didn’t ski on injected snow at all since the temperature was just not cold enough,” said tech coach Roland Pfeifer. “But it didn’t hurt us at all. We still had very good conditions to train on. "
The tech team — Mikaela Shiffrin, Resi Stiegler and Julia Mancuso, as well as members of the Development squad — trained slalom and GS from July 23-Aug 11.
