Red Zones

Please see this link to our Red Zones.

One thing I want to stress, and ask for your help to encourage, is that our athletes should focus on their “situational behavior”, meaning that they act appropriately given the situation that they are in.

The example I like to use is that of a race car driver: The fastest race car driver in the world still needs to obey the 25 mph speed limit when they enter their neighborhood. Just because they can drive fast doesn’t mean that they always should.

Of particular importance, related to our own racers, are the RED and YELLOW zones on our mountain. We need to make sure that when we ski in those areas, we check our speed appropriately and use good situational awareness to manage our movements throughout those zones. Please see THIS MAP of those zones and use this to discuss this expectation with your athlete.
