I think you underestimate the shenanigans the US and Canadian alpine ski teams can come up with... Its a lot more fun and games than the organisations would like us to believe.

I should hope so!

These are the healthiest best young adult skiers our teams can field.  They are given whatever they need to go to some of the coolest ski areas on the planet.  If they did not screw off now and then they would be wasting the chance of a lifetime.

What a marvelous way to mis-spend your youth.

One of the neat things among the make-up of the current USST is that there seem to be a ton of them who just love to ski. I think that's a neat message for some of the junior racers in this country who do not seem to free ski enough, IMO. You're right, when these guys {and ladies} are on a trip, if it's in a powder region, the powder boards are in the bag. A lot of powder skiing has been going on in Chile, with all of the dumps down there this summer, as an example. When US Nationals have been at Alyeska, same thing. A lot of fun free-skiing. Some of the younger guys, like Travis Ganong, are tremendous free skiers. Growing up at Squaw, or in Utah does that I guess!  And for a lot of these guys, when they need to get re-centered or work out some issues, they often start by just laying it over on some cruisers. Good stuff.

From my personal experience, I wouldn't say there's a ton of them who love skiing, but there's every single one who loves to ski. At least in skiing, and I doubt there's much different in any other sport, I don't know anyone, from little kids to WC winners, who would be skiing because of money, glory or something else. Every single one just love to ski, and if there's some money on glory as "side effect" it just makes it better. But main reason to be there is love to ski, nothing else.
And this is pretty normal anyway. There's only very few people who earn a lot of money, and who get some TV time and with this related glory. Everyone else have to have some other reason for training just as hard as those few previously mentioned guys. I was in this myself, I never did anything special result wise, but I still consider those years as best time of my life. And then back to those few guys who do well. Most of them (like Miller, Raich, Vonn, Svindal etc.) have enough money so they can quit anytime, yet they all still go on and on. And this is probably best proof it's not about money, but about love... even if it might sound weird :)

U.S. Ski Team - Powder Days - Women at Aspen, Men at Beaver Creek - Videos





In addition to racing footage, I think ski teams and sponsors should film and post more videos online of team members having fun on and off the slopes - powder days, freeskiing, other activities - plus gate training and freeskiing training drills.
