Kiwi Winter 2018

Coronet Peak June 2018

Following on from a bit of down time catching the last of summer, I had a great build up of strength and conditioning (thanks to Ben Griffin’s programme) getting ready for the  Kiwi Winter 2018. I also got to experience a WIM HOF workshop in Paradise, Glenorchy learning to be comfortable while uncomfortable, experiencing Cold Therapy, Breathing and Commitment – thanks to the team, I certainly took a lot away from the weekend with some good tools to work with.

Plenty of good weather left in Autumn for dryland training before the first of the snow arrived so took the opportunity to get on the bike as well as hitting the gym.

In no time at all it was back on snow at The Remarkables for our first camp, back to basics with the NZ Ski & Coberger Team.  We had excellent conditions for so early in the season with plenty of snow cover and good weather.

Excited now for some equipment testing of new skis and boots arriving very soon. In the meantime, more strength and conditioning before our next on snow training block starts.

Shout out to the Skeggs Foundation for their continued support.  Check out their page, and while you are there, why not look at getting a Skeggs fuel card to help out numerous athletes!
