US Ski Team: Women’s Head Coach Alex Hoedelmoser Revisited

Mikaela Shiffrin, Julia Mancuso head coach
With the focus firmly fixed on the slopes of Sochi, we thought it would be an excellent time to revisit our in-depth interview with the head coach of the U.S. Women’s Ski Team, Alex Hoedlmoser.

It’s filled with insights into the ultra high-performance and rather risky world of alpine ski racing. With Lindsey Vonn out of this year’s Olympics, there is even more pressure on some of the younger skiers on the team, including slalom phenomenon Mikaela Shiffrin, as well as on the veteran downhill racer Julia Mancuso.
This interview was recorded just before the start of the 2012-2013 ski season.
