Scott Palmer is program director and head snowboard coach at Vermont's Stratton Mountain School, and has his own take on the new competition landscape."My 14-year-olds are the ones that will be steering the industry," he said."I have three alpine specialists out of 22 students.To me, the writing is on the wall."
Palmer, himself a former alpine racer, goes on to describe how he has had to change his own views of the sport."Five years ago I was irate that a snowboard was turning into a sled to get from jump to jump," he said."Now I am coaching that.We are going to freestyle camps, working with gymnasts, dissecting every move.Our training is not so much endurance anymore.It's more about agility and coordination."
