This weekend I’ve got a couple of FIS races on the docket at Loveland. Today we ran slalom. It sure was nice to be back in the seed again (top 15 points at start). The race itself went alright, I’ve still got some kinks to work out but I was happy with a solid stepping stone for the season to propel myself on to better things. It is a building process, and I definitely feel like I am headed for a great season. Huge props to the winner of today, my great buddy and fellow native Vermonter, Andrew McNealus for the win.
I ended up 12th after the day was done, but had some fantastic sections of skiing that I am glad with. Here is some skiing from today.

GS is tomorrow which I am psyched for. Forerunning earlier this week I had some serious speed in the bag so I am just going to go ahead and do that. Here is some vid from training on the race hill last weekend. As you can see its a little haggard still, but I am really starting to understand the execution I need to come onto the flats with some heat.
