It is October 18th and in just under a week I will be leaving for Colorado to really get this season started. I apologize for my silence recently, and I promise as this season gets underway there will be a constant stream of updates. So lets get this thing started off shall we, with pictures, videos, and words!
I just flew home from Europe last night where I was attending an extremely productive training block with the Killington Mountain School on the Stubaier glacier in Austria. KMS had me on as an athlete/coach and it was a blast being able to further my own skiing while also being something of a mentor to the young guns who have a huge amount of potential at that school. It is extremely gratifying giving feedback to kids who share a deep and honest sense of passion for the sport.
The trip also gave me something that I haven’t had in years which is a solid prep camp on snow before the season starts and I am running around trying to prefect my technique before the first Nor-Ams at the end of November. I feel that huge progress was made at this camp and it has gotten me ready for Colorado next week.
More info to come about my plans for the early season, but for now enjoy the pictures from Europe and of course a few glimpses of my skiing. I know there are still plenty of kinks to work out, but it feels good after being away all summer. Enjoy,
