SUGAR MOUNTAIN RESORT, NC – 1994 Olympic Gold 1992 Olympic Silver medalist Diann Roffe and two-time (1992,1994) Olympian, Krista Schmidinger will both be special guest coaches during Sugar’s 15th Annual Adult Pre-Season Ski Clinic scheduled for December 12-14, 2008.
One of the most accomplished skiers in American ski racing history, Diann Roffe competed in three Olympics (’88, ’92, ’94) sharing silver in the giant slalom in Albertville, France in 1992 and winning gold in super G in Lillehammer, Norway in 1994. Recognized as a big event performer, Diann was the first U.S. racer to medal in the Junior World Championships. She shocked the world a year later by winning the world championship giant slalom in Bormio, Italy. With two Olympic medals and eight world cup podiums (2 wins) Diann continues to share her wealth of experiences and delightful personality with ski racers across the country.
Krista Schmidinger, accomplished in her own right, competed in both the 1992 and 1994 Olympics. She captured three consecutive silver medals in the Junior World Championships in ’86, ‘87 and ’88 and was the U.S. National Super G and Pan American champion in 1990. Krista continues to participate in many programs here at Sugar Mountain throughout the winter season.
Both girls will work directly with camp participants on and off the hill each day. Their high level and impressive accomplishments bring a great deal of experience and knowledge to Sugar’s 15th annual preseason ski clinic.
In addition to Diann and Krista’s participation, Sugar’s Preseason Ski Clinic includes a three-day lift ticket, coaching fees, tuning clinic, video analysis, and a scrumptious dinner Saturday evening. Daily participation is also welcome.
