The new training center for the U.S. Ski & Snowboard Association features a state-of-the-art weight room, gymnasium, climbing wall, cardio areas, ski and snowboard ramps, aerials trampolines, a nutrition center, a sports-medicine recovery and rehab room, and a sport-science lab. Computer and multimedia rooms are hot-wired to allow athletes and coaches to analyze physical and equipment performance.
The Center of Excellence has the feel of a high-performance student union building. It was created to better serve athletes’ needs and, ultimately, become their “training home.” But it also serves as an educational resource to USSA athletes, coaches, officials, clubs, parents and other stakeholders nationwide.
