Sport Overview:
Alpine skiing is a demanding sport, and athletes will benefit by being in good physical
condition to compete successfully and safely. Alpine skiing requires, in addition to a
basic combination of endurance and strength, a high capacity of quickness and
action/reaction endurance. Through proper training, the athletes improve their
physical, psychological and mental efficiency.
The physical demands of snowboarding are challenging for any athlete. At a
minimum, snowboarding requires quick reflexes, good balance and strong physical
fitness. It is a fun way to stay fit, push the boundaries, and enjoy the beautiful
mountains that Washington has to offer.
