The U.S. Ski & Snowboard Team DNA Test - ORIG3N

U.S. Ski & Snowboard

The U.S. Ski & Snowboard Team DNA Test is a gene profile that gives you insights into attributes that can affect your performance on the slopes — so you can tailor your training to reach your full potential.

  • Is your body built for altitude — and racing downhill?
  • Are you genetically predisposed to recover quickly after a day on the mountain?
  • Could your genes help you stay mentally tough?

Your test will include analysis of these key aspects of mountain fitness:

MOUNTAIN TOUGHNESS Is your body built for mountain conditions — including cold temperatures, high altitudes, and steep grades?
