Training At Copper Mountain

Training is now well under way in Colorado and we have had some excellent conditions in spite of the lack of snow and training space.  We arrived 4th November into Dillon, CO and did out best getting into the new time zone and altitude by starting on snow the following day.  With so many teams going for the limited spots, we have had many early morning starts with the 6.00am – 9.00am time slot being a regular.  The snow conditions have been first class and the weather perfect – no good for fresh snow and a little warm, but great for training.  Luckily it has been cold enough for snow making.

Picked up some new skis for the season so have been getting used to the stiffer model and so far pretty happy with their performance.

It is quite different seeing the mountain on the chairlift ride up than the usual winter scenery but on the upper slopes conditions are producing plenty of good runs for working on improving technique.
