We've released half of our NCAA xc previews today and I noticed this in our women's preview.

The Huskies are just wrapping up a block of altitude training in Colorado Springs (UW doesn’t start classes until September 25), which served as a journey into the unknown for everyone involved. Coach Maurica Powell took her Oregon teams to Sunriver, Ore., (4,100 feet) for preseason camp, but taking a group this big (17 women) this high (6,000 feet) for this long (three weeks) is virgin territory.
When did trips like that start being allowed?
Imagine the cost of a trip like that.
