March 27 Update

Hi Everyone,

I can not believe this is the last wek of the season! It has flown by too fast. Well I am excited to return to Canada though. Makaiya has been in lessons at my home ski hill. I have heard she is doing wel, and having fun! I willl be able to ski with her after my return. I am looking forward to that!

The junior camp is underway. There are 5 here today. We are rtaining gates inthe morning and free skiing in the afternoon. We did the ssame yesterday. We skied on the mogul run and on the GS Champion course doing basic drills. The kids had fun on the mogul run but were scared at first. They improved quickly!

I am thrilled with everyones progression! It has been a stellar season for race results! Great Job! PLease keep on with your positive thinking and loving, happy feelings. The combination of both will produce gerat results in all areas of your lives! Expect only what you WANT in your life! Think of only what you WANT! Negative will bring negative. POSITIVE WILL BRING POSITIVE!

Have a great Day!

Oh, it has been cool during the evenings, so the snow has been ok.

Hope to see you soon!

March 18 update

Hello Everyone,

What a crazy stretch of weather! I am in Hakuba now and the race conditions here are like January. Lucky! The Tea clippers guys did not get any points in the race so they are a little disappointed. I believe they did learn some good lessons though that will help them for the future! Many of them did not do any free skiing before thier start. That is needed of course to get a feel for the snow and of course get into your personal tecnical zone. It is important before the ski warm up to warm your body up first. Warm up to ski , do not ski to warm up! We want the most out of our ski warm up. Of course before the race start do our mental imagery and image warm up, as well as doing a full body warm up agian! Of course our skis are tune perfectly to match the snow conditions. Prepare in as many areas as possible to give yourself the best chance to win!

I hope to see you at the Accel Cup race on the weekend .

Best Regards

March 5 Update

Hello everyone,

Ok, It was very windy and it did rain slightly! We did do very good training on the flats though. I set a very straight course and we did crouching training. It was great! All guests had very good improvements. I would like to do it maybe in the afternoons on the weekend when the snow condition is bad. See you all soon. Good Luck with your races this up coming weekend if you have one! Think positive and feel happy!

Best Regards

Hello everyone!

I hope you all had a great weekend! It was a very warm but positive weekend here at Sugadaira! I know I may repeat the same point to some of you many times. I want you to know that point what ever it is , is vital for your next step. If you are having trouble in doing a movement, it maybe because you are holding on to an old image of how to do the turn. We are all creaters of habit and for some it is very hard to do something new. This is why it is important to see all new movements in our minds first. See what movement you want and also feel what that movement would feel like. If you are scared to do the movement see yourself confident. Play that movie in your mind over and over! You have the power to change quickly if you choose to. The movies we play in our minds are future reality!!

We have thousands of thoughts everyday! Those thoughts make us feel a certain feeling. Control what you are thinking! When we are feeling happy, confident, secure, fearless, you will create a positive future! In and outside of ski racing! Lets move forward positively! I see us all
happy, creative , and winning!

Bye for now!
