Regardless of the age or level of ski racers, when it comes to training, there is nothing more valuable than snow. As teams everywhere are all too aware, this hot (cold) commodity is scarce, not to mention expensive to access on a year-round basis. The snow chase has historically taken teams from all over the world to the Southern Hemisphere, European glaciers and Mt. Hood to train in the summer and fall. Increasingly, alpine teams of all levels are also looking to training opportunities and indoor ski domes, which are scarce in North America.
