Hi everyone!

Firstly I would like to mention Max Burkhart, a 17 year old racer from Germany who passed away after a horrible crash at the Lake Louise NORAMS. Although I didn’t know him personally, his death has deeply affected our team and the whole ski community. I want to send my thoughts and prayers to his family, friends, coaches and teammates during this time of grieving. I know he will be greatly missed! May we all remember him for his passion and love of ski racing!

Currently the Alberta Ski Team is in Panorama finishing up the NORAMS and FIS races before Christmas. Unfortunately I’m not with the team because of a little knee injury that should be healed up by the January races so for the time being I will be hitting the gym!  I will however be heading out to watch and support my fellow teammates race before the series is over.  I wish everyone all the best and I can’t wait to get back on snow with them!

Happy holidays everyone! May the remainder of the year bring happiness and love to you all!
