I’ve been out in Colorado now for 3 weeks and I couldn’t be more pleased with how its going. Just over a week ago I had my first comp of the season, The North Face Freeski open, as this was soon after i arrived and wasn’t an Olympic qualifier we decided to treat as a training competition. I landed my run in qualifiers and proceeded into finals in 6th place, unfortunately in the finals i fell on my runs!
2 days after I started training for Dew Tour as i was 1st alternate, fortunately someone dropped out and I was able to compete. I was really nervous as it is a really big and well known comp, plus I was competing against the top girls in the sport. Qualifiers were a blast as I skied the best I ever had and managed to qualify into finals in 7th place!! This was better than I thought, so went into the finals with nothing to lose. Unfortunately, due to lack of speed, I didn’t land the run I wanted too; but still managed to land a basic safety run and finished overall in 7th place. Which I’m still super stoked about!!
Now I’m in the middle of training for the Grand Prix taking place at Copper Mountain on Thursday evening.
