It has been a great start to the season, Davey McKenzie from Atlas Bar Queenstown has agreed to assist with some of my ski racing costs. Excellent place to relax and go for a meal.
After a good build up to the start of the season, training is now in full swing. I’m feeling pleased with how things are coming along. We had a few “back to basics” days up at Mt Hutt before coming down to ski at Coronet Peak where we have had several blocks of Slalom and Gs training.
A few of the other teams are starting to arrive, including the Australians who are training with us. We currently have American Trace Smith who races for Estonia and Mike Rishworth, Australian National team member staying with us which makes for a full house! Looking forward to our first races in just over a week, I’ll be sure to let you know how they go!
