Paddy sends an update halfway through our Park City training camp
Hello from Park City! We just finished up our first week of training at the annual USST camp here in Utah. This is my favorite dryland camp of the year. Park City is an amazing place to visit and the weather this time of year is perfect for logging lots of quality hours with teammates – however I will admit it has been an adjustment waking up to snow and temperatures in the teens most mornings!

For our first week of training we overlapped with the Canadian National Team and collaborated on several hard workouts. It was really fun to mix up the training group and jump in behind some different skiers. One of my favorite joint workouts of the week was a classic interval session at the rollerski track in Soldier Hollow. We started every interval together as one big group of around 20 skiers – it was a great opportunity to practice skiing hard in a pack.
