January 30 Update

We had GS training today! I set a course starting in the traverse run going to #'s 4,5,6! So again we had a big left hand turn going into the pitch
. Unfortunately the fog rolled in. No video and no pictures! Sorry! We are skiing GS again tomorrow. We have the whole hill to ourselves so I will set a course from the traverse once more. We have a mix of adults and kids so it should be an awesome day! Just a boring picture of me!!!! Hopefully I will have some action shots tomorrow!

Monday traianing

Hello! I hope you all had a good weekend! I enjoyed mine! Monday was a great day. It snowed for the first hour, then cleared off for the sun!!!!! We trained GS from the traverse at the top of # 4,5,6! So we had a left hand swooping turn to the left down the steeps. We were able the use 4
,5, and 6 so the set was very unique. Great day! SL training tomorrow! Bye for now!

Takeshi invades my room!

We trained GS today with all adults. A very good day. The snow was much harder, but there were a few ice balls around! Not too bad though. Tomorrow we will train SL Junior poles only! Takeshi has 2 more days of training here. He has been staying in my room because there are no other kids here. He has a lot of gear! As all racers do! See you soon!

Jan, 22 Update

Hi all, It was a wet day today. Wet snow and rain! We did train till 11am. Trained GS and did a lot of basic training drills. Takeshi did a great job going through them all! Kind of tired him out! Nice work! Did not take any pictures skiing. Too wet. Just some shots from dinner.

Camp Update

Hi Everyone, More races scheduled this weekend! Good luck to everyone! Just focus on simple things. Good course inspection, imagery of the course and your basic movements And FULL POWER!!!!!! All of you have been so focused in training! I am so proud of all of you! Keep up the good Work! We did get more new snow! No thank you very much!!!!!! I sure miss those icy conditions. But the soft snow is much easier to ski on to improve basic skills. With that hard icy snow comes more speed and less time to react. So in reality the conditions have been perfect! Only 4 trained today so again the racers got lots of runs in! See you soon!
