Hello everyone! Due to a set back this is my first athlete journal of the year! After an extensive summer gym training program, a couple on snow camps overseas, and some amazing pre-season skiing locally, my race season didn’t proceed as planned.  Unfortunately back in December at the Lake Louise NorAm I had a crash...

We were all very well prepared for the series by our coaches, however most of our outcomes were below expectations.
