Union PT has a number of therapists who are accomplished winter athletes. We range from weekend lift accessed enthusiast to backcountry powder enthusiasts and free ski competitors. We have developed programs for the prevention and rehabilitation of ski and snowboard injuries based on our experience in the mountains and latest medical research.
Mitch Owens PT and Kristen Vaughan PT of Union PT cofounded the Alpine Training Project with Mandie Majerus of Lake Washington PT. ATP is a membership based online ski and snowboard conditioning program for all levels of winter athlete. Union PT collaborates with the Alpine Training Project to offer pre-season training programs and in-season skihab programs to improve performance and reduce your chance of missing days in the mountains related to injury.
However if you do find yourself injured in the mountains we have all of the tools and knowledge needed to help you get back out there.
Our skihab programs are designed to allow you to train with a whole season in mind while tracking your progress. We are all licensed physical therapists with backgrounds in recovery science, zone based training, squat biomechanics and the principles of physiologic adaptation. ATP is research-led with the individual starting point driving the component exercises. See how dryland training can exponentially improve your time in the mountains.
