Skiing super heroes have made Park City their Hall of Justice. The U.S. Alpine Ski Team is ramping up with two-a-days prior to heading to Vancouver for the Winter Olympics. One training session in the morning, followed by a reset of the course, with another training session in the afternoon.

Men’s head coach Sasha Rearick has been pleased with the results. “The guys have had an awesome attitude and they have been pushing and challenging each other,” Rearick told Utahskier.net. “The coaching staff is really excited on how the guys have been pushing the limits on what they’ve been able to do.”

In attendance at the camp are Bode Miller (Franconia, NH), Ted Ligety (Park City, UT, pictured above), Steven Nyman (Sundance, UT) Marco Sullivan (Squaw Valley, CA), Andrew Weibrecht (Lake Placid, NY), Erik Fisher (Middleton, ID) and Will Brandenburg (Spokane, WA).

Park City was chosen for a variety of reasons, but the big one being, “The snow is as similar as we could make it to Whistler at 7,000 ft.,” Rearick said.

The first alpine event is the men’s downhill on Saturday, February 13th.
