Oberhof Update in 10 Tweets

The Ontario Ski Team is training on snow in Germany for the next ten days! Northeast of Frankfurt is the small town of Oberhof [host of several WC & TDS races] and in the summer Oberhof boasts a 1.8km enclosed ski tunnel. It’s essentially a giant fridge with excellent training opportunities. For a more fascinating review of training in Oberhof check out my final blog post on the trip from last year here. Updates will be coming in regularly this week on how training is going this year.

Kicking things off for us this year is OST athlete Mia Serratore. She’s written her update on the first 48h in Germany in a series of tweets. Here are her unfiltered, uncensored tweets;

  • @PiratePav’s sense of direction… #NotSoGreat  #extreme4hours

Ok- so for a VARIETY of reasons we ended up near Stuttgart before recalbrating the German-only speaking GPS to take us back up north to the REAL Oberhof. The team was very patient and the tunes were killer. As you can see from this video, no one was really suffering

  • I have officially been awake for 30 hours straight without caffeine
