Norway Training camp

It has been many years since I’ve missed any US Ski Team training camps, but this July it was time for me to do something a little different. Last Wednesday when the rest of the US Ski Team flew out to Alaska, I took off in the other direction to Oslo Norway. I always look forward to our team training camps and the feeling of waking up every day for 2 weeks with the single goal of getting fitter and pushing one another. It was a shame to miss out on Alaska dry land training and Eagle glacier but if my personal goal is to become one of the best double-polers in the world, I needed to learn from the best.

April Adventures 

Now that the ski season is over it's the best time of year to experience all the other outdoor activities I'm passionate about. It has been a busy few weeks since racing has finished up. I've been on the move finding waves in Santa Teresa Costa Rica and was lucky enough to ski powder a few days later in Montana! Thanks to everyone who has cheered and supported the US Ski Team this year. I was a historic year for our team and we will have more to come next season and as we move toward the 2018 Olympics! 


Tour of Canada 

In just a few days the World Cup will return for Canada for the second time in 3 years with the Tour of Canada. I’m super excited to race especially in the Quebec area where so many Vermont and New England ski fans came to cheer last time around. The Tour of Canada will be an 8 stage tour starting in Montreal before moving on to Quebec and finishing in Canmore Alberta!



Second in Dolomitenlauf 


Wow what a day! This was my first long double-pole marathon, making for one of the most fun and challenging racing experiences I have ever had. 

The Dolomitenlauf is a 42k race through the beautiful Dolomite mountains near Lienz. Conditions were perfect and it was a blast edging to the start line with thousands of other people. Thanks to all the organizers, participants, and fans!
