Hey everyone! Last week was our second week on snow here in Colorado. We have been staying in a huge house in Keystone with the rest of our team plus two Dutch Girls and two Japanese guys, and it's pretty crowded! We have been going back and forth between training at Copper Mountain and A-Basin each week, and so far training has been pretty relaxed, with everyone just trying to get their feet back underneath them and we haven't had to be on the hill any earlier than 9am, which has been great! That is all going to change though this week, when we start a five day, 7am training session at A-Basin.
First off, I just wanted to say that I’m super excited to have been named one of the USASA’s Riders’ Representatives for this season, and I want to thank everyone out there who voted for me at Nationals!
I just arrived in Steamboat Springs, Colorado yesterday after a 2-day drive from Minnesota. Not much in the way of snow here yet (it was 67 degrees yesterday!), however A-Basin has been open for over a week and we start training there tomorrow. Can’t wait!!
What’s up everybody! After an amazing season last year that ended with a Nor-Am champion title, I began to plan this year way differently than I had expected. With the Nor-Am title, I have the opportunity to compete in every World Cup and Olympic qualifier. I was so excited to get the chance to compete at the top level Boardercross races that I decided I would focus all of my time on the upcoming season instead of attending Colorado University at Boulder which I will plan on doing next summer.
