Summer Housing Board for Collegiate Athletes

FW_NordicNews2013-webThis upcoming summer, we will once again be providing collegiate student-athletes the opportunity to come to Truckee and train as part of structured group. The program will benefit both the student-athletes, as they take advantage of the numerous training options in the area, as well as the local Nordic community. Exposure to these high level athletes will benefit the local juniors by providing them with exceptional role models. The collegiate student-athletes will help raise the level of training for our junior skiers as well.

As part of this program, we are aiming to provide housing for these student-athletes.

In a departure from previous years, we are asking Far West community members to utilize a Housing Forum through the Far West website. Those interested can post their rooms/homes so that athletes coming this summer can coordinate directly. Rent is fine, but please keep in mind these are college students, for whom money is tight.

They are all highly motivated athletes as well as exceptional students. Over the summer, they will be involved in near daily training sessions lead by Far West and Sugar Bowl Academy coach Martin Benes, along with help from the rest of the Far West coaching staff. They will all be seeking employment in the area so that they may cover their various expenses. Please contact Coach Martin if you have any questions.
