Over August and early September I have been out in New Zealand competing and training with the GB ski and snowboard team. It was a lot of fun skiing with my friends and also meeting lots of awesome people. I trained really well and felt that I had improved a lot over the month I was out there. Unfortunately the world cup didn’t go the way I had hoped it too, as my runs had gone really well in training but when it came to the comp I let the nerves get to me, and I unfortunately messed up my runs; which put me in 17th place.
Fortunately I had another comp to compete in which was the North Face Freeski open, this was near the end of the trip, which kept me focused in training. I really enjoyed this comp and felt I skied the best I could have, and ended up placing 3rd which I was mega stoked about!!

Over all it was a successful trip and can’t wait to head back there next year. Back home now and just focusing on training in the gym and college.
