Hello everyone and welcome to my first athlete journal of the new season! A new season also means a new team which has been an exciting change of pace.

We have been in Pucon, Chile for the past couple of weeks now. Although the weather has held us back on a couple of days, I couldn’t be happier with how the trip is going as well as how the team as a whole is gelling and beginning to become more in sync. We have just wrapped up the slalom portion of the camp with 6 quality days of freeskiing, drill work, brush courses, and full-length slalom courses. I personally have seen notable improvement over those training days and feel comfortable as ever on my skis.

As for off the hill we have been staying right on the beach of Lake Villarica. We have great facilities at our disposal including swimming pools, a full-size basketball court, as well as spin bikes and all of the necessary equipment for dryland. We have had a couple weather-induced days off which has allowed us to take full advantage of these amenities.

All in all the trip has been great so far with excellent training both on and off the hill. This has allowed us to develop as a group and everyone has seen improvement. I am pleased with the group of people I now know as teammates and look forward to the rest of the season!
