Final round-up to the season came with the Snow Sports Awards at Wanaka where I picked up the Alpine Athlete of the Year award and my coach Nils Coberger picked up the Coach of the Year. (below with Corey Peters Adaptive Athlete of the year)
The last couple of weeks of my brief taste of summer at home went far too quickly but managed to get in some quality strength and conditioning sessions with Ben Griffin and the team. Also had time for the odd bike ride and a few Pilates sessions. One Studio organized a really interesting session for us at the Auckland University wind tunnel where we worked on finding our best tuck positions.
We headed over to Europe a little earlier this year as we get ready to start training on the World Cup piste at Sölden, Austria and arrived into Munich on the 16th October to a pleasant 20º C blue skies and looking very green! It will take a few days to get used to the time zone but after that long series of flights we were pretty exhausted. We then made our way south of Innsbruck, Austria towards our base for the next couple of weeks where we will be training before the first World Cup at the famous Sölden!
Many thanks again to all my sponsors, supporters, friends and family. It is going to be a big season and I’ll do my best to keep you up to date.
