Alpine Training Project
Online ski training designed by physical therapists and informed by the latest research and years in-the-field training for winter and treating winter athletes. Our goal is to enhance performance of skiers and snowboarders while optimizing the motion, strength and balance deficits that might expose an athlete to injury. ATP includes a self-assessment and training programs based on the latest research and years of working on the world cup circuit, as well as participating in multi-day hut trips and freeskiing competitions.
