Truthful Insight To College Skiing

Oda Karlsen Bekkestad is a student-athlete at the  University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, United States.  Ms. Bekkestad shares her insights into the US college skiing on the Daily Skier pages.    American college skiing has a reputation for being a skier’s way of ending their career. Injuries, parties and a lack of structure is just some of the descriptions used to confirm this stereotype. However, stereotypes aren’t always accurate. Being a student-athlete can be a springboard to a long and successful athletic career. As a college skier you have tons of recourses available to you. Not only for improving your athletic ability, but also for developing academically. Nutritionists, coaches, therapists and tutors are just some of the recourses you can take advantage of. Most student-athletes have support systems that are similar…

Here’s a quick insight into dry-land training in Melbourne, when we aren’t training up at our ski resorts! https://www.instagram.com/p/BnNpGY1A9Jz/ Australia, is not usually known for any sort of winter sports, however that doesn’t mean we don’t have fantastic ski resorts and amazing places to train.

Cross country skiers are some of the fittest, balanced and the most attractive people in world – there is no reason not to put it on display. They tend to have strong opinions – and we shall provide a pulpit for those to be aired in public. One wouldn't exactly call the Daily Skier…
