Coming back from the Olympics it was good to be able to come back to the US, pick up some quality training and push out of the start gate at a couple NorAms. Heading back to Whiteface brought back memories. The weather and snow was perfect, my lack of having status and a position on the start list presented a challenge.
On Day 1, we started with Giant Slalom. The results can be seen in the link above. It was great to put two good runs together. I was able to move up from 32 to first. On the second day we started Slalom. I again had a good first run. Starting from 32 I moved up to within striking distance. On the second run I got a bit to anxious dove into a gate early and straddled. But the skiing both days was great and I’ll get another chance a the end of the season at NorAm finals.
