Training Begins - Font Romeu, France

Training has begun for the last World Cup of the 2017 season! So first off I still do not have my ski bag…. its been about 4 days now and they can’t seem to locate my luggage. Thankfully, my teammates had extra gear for me to use during training.

Today was a perfect day, the sun was out and the course was perfect! Even though I was not training in my own gear, I felt really good on the course! I managed to pull almost my entire run together which I am stoked on! It’s nice to be able to get my run dialled in on the first day of training because on the second day I can just fine tune everything and feel really prepared for the comp day.

The one thing that is a bit annoying at the World Cup events is how many competitors there are, and how big it makes the line to get onto the course…. Sometimes we will have to wait 20 minutes or more at the top of the course just to get into the start gate, so that makes training a little tough sometimes!

See what I mean, big lines! That’s me all in the way in the back, #11…. hahaha Photo: Merimee

Now all that is left to do is to pray that my ski bag shows up soon before the contest starts! cross your fingers for me!

Stay tuned!
