New Year 2019

It’s been a little while since last posting so just a brief update and some photos from the past month in Europe.  After leaving Colorado we headed to Europe to continue on with the World Cup races with the first being in Val d’Isere, France.   On the way I stopped off to pick up some new gear from Volkl Marker Dalbello which was greatly appreciated.  The race at Val d’Isere had tricky conditions with heavy snow falling and quite bumpy.  Had some good turns but over skied a few places.

From France we headed on down to Italy with a brief stop in Milan before heading to the next race at Alta Badia in the beautiful Dolomites.  Had some excellent training conditions with perfect weather. I was much happier with my skiing in the race but not quite there for a second run.

From Alta Badia, Italy it was a quick trip back to base in Austria before flying home to New Zealand for a bit of a break over Christmas before the next set of races.  Hope everyone has had a great Christmas and wishing you all the best in 2019.
