Since the beginning of September until now, It has been workout and ski.
All of September we did training in Whistler again with mostly finishing off the summer training and to get ready to move into the ski season. With accomplishing my summer goals, I was ready to hit the snow again. We started our pre-season training in Saas-Fee, Switzerland. There we worked on our technical skiing by training a lot of GS and Slalom. I must say I was pretty happy for the overall part of the camp and what I got out of it.

It's been a while since I've put a blog up so its time to bring you up to speed.
Since the beginning of May the team and I have been training in the gym in Whistler trying to get in the best shape as possible for the big up and coming year. There have been huge improvements on the whole team! From team building to cardio workouts. It was a hard 3 months but it was worth it and noticeably helpful on the hill when we went to New Zealand.
The whole month of August the team was close to Christchurch skiing in Mt. Hutt for training and then 4 world cup races. Two at Mt. Hutt and 2 at Coronet Peak. I am pretty happy with how many runs we were able to get in a day and the success our team had is a good start to our new ski season.
