After a great taste of summer, it was straight into race mode when we got back to Colorado. On leaving Queenstown, travelling roughly 24 hours solid and a quick afternoon free ski at Winter Park, we raced the following two days in two giant slaloms. I had a couple of good runs, unfortunately not in the same race. From Winter Park, we moved on to Aspen where teammates Willis and Nick went into speed mode with some downhill training and races (and podiumed) while I got in some great gs and super g training. The downhill races were followed up by two super g races where I picked up a couple of podium spots (3rd & 2nd) as well as getting some good point results. Nick picked up 2 golds. I was lucky enough to stay with friend Bobby Moyer while in Aspen – many thanks to Bobby and family!
After packing up and heading out, we are now in Eldora, (about four hours drive from Aspen) for a slalom and three GS races – interesting start list being a University race as they have seed points within FIS points. These will be our final races before heading on to Beaver Creek for the World Ski Championships!
