Christmas Break

Hello from Seefeld Austria! We are here training for the next week and will start up with Word Cup racing again on Dec. 30 for the Tour De Ski!!



First Period WC

Even though Davos is a regular and reoccurring stop on the World Cup it was a blast to arrive this year and settle into what feels like home at the Hotel Kulm. I think last week was special for everyone because it has been a few years now since we experienced incredible skiing in Davos.  Far too often we are skiing a man made, white ribbon of snow here but not this year!

Bend Camp

The first US Ski Team traning camp in underway in Bend Oregon. For the next two week we will be jumping back into big traing. This is our first full team training camp of the season so it's super fun to get to see all my teammates again after some time off. This training camp is focused on longer distance skis and working on a lot of ski technique while we are still on snow. Skiing is pretty great for this time of year!



Spring Touring 

April is the time for big adventures and big mountain skiing. For the past week Erika and I have been in Estes Park Calorado for a 3 day avalanche course. We also got to spend a some time in the mountains in search of some powder and fun turns. Still so much snow here!




Sweden Training Camp

With a weekend off from World Cup racing the team has decided to re-group here in Valadalen Sweden for a short training camp.  I returned to Europe last Monday after a long travel day back from Korea, flying from Seoul to Ostersund Sweden.  Ostersund is home to a lot of Swedish National team skiers including our good friend Emil Jonsson so it was a perfect chance to catch up with him and also avoid staying in a hotel for two nights. After months on the road it’s hard to describe how great it is to spend a few nights in a real house rather than a hotel.

We spent two days skiing around Ostersund before driving the 1.5 hours to Valadalen to start our training camp. The best way to describe Valadalen is that it’s kind of like the Swedish equivalent to the Craftsbury training center.  Lots of different buildings with hotel style rooms, and a main lodge with awesome food, and pretty far out in the middle of nowhere. It kind of has an isolated feel out here but the accommodations are perfect with a full gymnasium and training center and perfect ski trails right out the door.  Not to mention beautiful mountains and scenery.
