Tryout Camp

I just got home from a seven day training camp at Mount Bachelor.  The camp was quite large (16 athletes) since it doubled as a try-out camp to fill vacancies on the Team.  I'd already made team criteria, so was able to focus entirely on my skiing without preasure. I felt like it was a very productive camp. 

The group of guys was great.  I was already good friends with the 8 guys from the West, having raced and travelled with them a lot over the years. I got to room with some the East guys and really liked them as well.  The team nominations were announced last week, and all the guys on the list are pretty awesome.  I'm looking forward to a fun and productive year!

And it starts again!

Well, its time to start packing once again! After an awesome two weeks at home I am getting ready for 3 days of strength testing in Park City, UT followed by 8 days on snow in Mt. Bachelor, Oregon. I have been lifting a lot of weights and digging a lot of ditches for the last few weeks and am feeling really strong and ready for testing. I know a bunch of the guys I'll be with down there too and can't wait to spend some time with them! Should be a great camp!
