Fresh Snow

Front yard, Dillon CO

Week one, Dillon

We have been in Colorado two weeks now and training has been going well.  We arrived to very little snow which has meant a variety of start times to get our turn on snow along with all the other teams currently at Copper Mountain.  Some mornings we’ve been up at 4.45am for a 6.30am start while other days it’s been around 2.00pm. Even though there is little snow, our training area has been very good. It has also taken a bit of time getting used to skiing at altitude (12,330 feet / 3750m at Copper).  A few days ago we had our first snow storm arrive which was very welcome, although made for some frosty training.

I have been training predominately slalom and while it is early in the season, feel I am making some progress.  Managed to sprain my thumb in the first week while skiing through ruts but fortunately it hasn’t stopped my training.  Today we were supposed to have our first gs session but it has just been cancelled due to snow and lane space issues.

Snow has arrived 13 Nov 14
