8-10 times have the thrill of riding on the mountain. This will build great cardio and muscular endurance, along with being an intense core workout and building self confidence.

AVALANCHE AWARENESS TRAINING

CROSS COUNTRY SKIING
1-2 times we will explore the snowy forests of North Fork Park. This is the best cardio workout with an awe inspiring backdrop. (athletes will need a day pass from north fork, discount rentals will be arranged if needed)

MULTI SPORT EXPERIENCE
We know it is hard to be on multiple sports teams during the same season, let alone start a new sport competitively after the age of 9.
Wasatch Outdoor Sports gives an athlete the chance to develop a variety of physical skills which can best be developed through a diverse sporting experience. This approach develops an overall more rounded athlete.
There are undoubted physiological benefits to a diverse sports experience, but there are also huge psychological benefits to trying new things. Learning new skills and just having fun exploring builds self confidence. Outdoor sports can teach us many life lessons.
Participating in these activities have numerous lifelong benefits. This is why WASATCH OUTDOOR SPORTS was born.
