Queenstown's alpine ski star Alice Robinson is the guest on this week's Outlet Podcast, talking technique, her team and the top two inches.

The 22-year-old World Cup alpine ski racer and Olympian has recently returned from an impressive northern hemisphere winter season.

In this episode she details her journey back to form and the training, technique, and team dynamics that have propelled her to the top.

Alice emphasises the importance of having a strong support system, not just for the technical aspects of skiing but also for the emotional and mental well-being required to perform at such high levels. Her coaches, Tim Cafe and Nils Coberger, along with her dedicated physiotherapists, have played pivotal roles in her comeback.

She talks about attention to detail and perfecting her body alignment, ensuring that she can recover quickly even when she encounters difficulties during a race, along with her rigorous physical and mental training regime to get her race ready.

And she discusses her upcoming Snow Sports New Zealand Alpine Youth Tech Camp later this month, where she will be sharing her experiences and insights with young athletes, hoping to inspire the next generation of skiers.
