Train Smarter (and Harder) for the Zions Bank Boulder Mountain Tour

There are very few athletic accolades you could not apply to Muffy Ritz; a former U.S. Cross-Country Ski Team member, two-time American Birkebeiner champion, Race Across America runner-up, and a member of the local Ski Hall of Fame. On a more pedestrian front, Ritz is on the BMT’s board of directors, and founded and coaches for VAMPS, a Nordic ski program for women.

Fellow coach Betsy Youngman, a two-time U.S. Olympian, and Kate Ellis, a coach for VAMPS. Youngman created the Advanced program, Ritz designed the Intermediate, and Ellis the Novice training plan.

The intrepid trio created thorough training plans for our participants and skiing community that will elevate your strength and skiing.

Happy skiing!
