Life in Steamboat - The Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club
The SSWSC is one of the many things that make Steamboat a special place to live. The kids get to free ski and train with incredible coaches who raced in College, the US Ski Team and often the Olympics along with a team of great friends who truly want to be there. The kids are amazing in how they support and encourage each other. I am impressed with how they interact and what great kids they are everytime I see them at training or races. The SSWSC isn't all about skiing, they also put a lot of thought into how they can convey valuable life lessons to the kids and do a great job at it.
This message from Caroline Lalive yesterday will give you a small taste: "First, I have to tell you all what an incredible job your kids are doing. There is nothing that is more exciting and fulfilling as a coach than seeing the kids ripping while free-skiing ALL over the mountain. I am smiling just thinking about it. I can’t convey enough how amazing they are all doing! It is such a delight to see their improvements and attitudes! They are taking their skiing to new heights and the improvements are beyond comprehension. There is no better teacher than the mountain, moguls, trees and terrain itself. It is our firm belief that this is what creates dynamic athletes and passionate skiers. They will carry this love well beyond their ski racing years. IT IS AWESOME! We are so proud of them."
Caroline Lalive is a 3 time Olympian and an all around great person. We feel lucky to have Alden and Neve learning from her and all of the other great coaches in the SSWSC as they learn to be both better skiers and better people. The dedication of the coaches is truly impressive. If you would like to know more about the SSWSC or anything else about Steamboat just let me know.
