AST Athlete Journal: Taras Dets

The season is over and I already miss the cold Naksiska wind. Despite the lack of races and the fight to stay motivated there were some positives. 

It was my first year at the University of Calgary with the Dinos and my first year on the Alberta ski team. It feels like I did most of my sleeping while my coaches drove the truck up to the hill.

Athletes can be difficult people, stubborn and opinionated. Over the years I’ve been lucky to have some coaches that stood by me and believed that I was worthy of their time. I am very grateful for that. Sometimes we don’t show enough of our gratitude to coaches, parents, sponsors and all the people we depend on throughout our skiing years. To them I am dedicating this movie.
