First NORAM races of the year are tomorrow morning at Loveland, CO! Starting 76th on non-injected snow it should be a pretty exciting first run! The goal is to make the flip or close to it in the first run in order to be within striking distance to finish top 30 over all. That way I score NORAM points and don't have to start way back there again in Panorama come December!

 I trained Slalom today after 4 days at home for the holidays and am feeling really well prepaired and ready to go! Should be a good race!

I'm 10 days into training here in Colorado and it has been great!! The new trail at Copper Mt. is absolutely awesome and gives us a great opportunity for four event training. Today was full length DH in the morning followed by 55 second GS in the afternoon. I don't think there is training like this to be had anywhere else on earth! I am skiing really fast and can't wait for the first races of the year on the 18th of this month here at Copper!

Almost time!!

Physical testing is all over and I am now wrapping up this strength training block here in Park City. I learned two things this camp that should dramatically improve my results this season... They are: 1. a double backflip on a trampoline, and 2. a standing backflip from the ground. I can't wait to feel the gains when I get back on snow!! But seriously, it was a really successful camp and I feel really great going into these next 3 weeks in colorado!

 I looked out my window this morning and it was dumping snow so hard I couldn't help but have a smile on my face!  Can't wait for some real winter skiing in 4 days!!
