2014 NZ Season Underway

It’s been awhile – had a tiny break from the Ski Life after Europe and the past two months I have been concentrating on fitness with the start of on-snow training a little delayed due to lack of snow but it’s all go now.  All sorts of crazy weather but we have finally had a good cold spell and even though a bit dry, Coronet Peak and their 212 snow guns have been super busy making snow so the start of our training season has been awesome. Home base is always a great place to train and it’s working well with all the National team members together.

Training has been going really well with early starts, on snow at 7.30am – which has been a little dark. The snow is finally falling today!  Always thinking of my sponsors and supporters who have contributed so much towards allowing me to continue to follow my dream – thanks again Team, truly value your continued support.  Now wearing the awesome clothing and gear from Merrell and Patagonia and getting our way through many a healthy One Square Meals!

We have been fitting in two sessions each day, sometimes a block of slalom and then giant slalom or a double block of either. Then maybe a gym session in the afternoon. Today, with snow falling we had our first super g session followed by GS – after the fresh snowfall overnight there was some slipping to do but was still a good day.
