EUROTRIP- Solden, Austria

After a long couple of travel days, including compression socks, a missed flight, melatonin and eventually trying to stay awake, we made it to Solden, Austria. Home of the season opener of World Cup GS. We got in really late, had a traditional dinner of meat and pasta and went to bed, trying to sleep through the night and be ready for our first day of training.

It is absolutely beautiful here right now. Our view!

It is still really warm, and that coupled with the green grass and beautiful views make it feel like summer. We ski hard in the morning, watching as the sun progressively hits more and more of the hill, and then we enjoy the balcony for biking, ready, stretching, and core in the afternoon. However, there is still MUCH more snow than last year!!

BUT... I will say this, the second night in Europe on my first trip to Europe every year is the absolute WORST for sleeping. I was awake to hear the church bells ring MANY times. I'm not sure when I was asleep and when I was awake, but c'est la vie. At least it was better than 2 years ago!

Mp and my room... finally separated beds in Europe!

We usually have many courses packed closely together, with teams everywhere. The stakes are much higher is you don't finish here; firstly because you might ski into another team's course, but also because many people are watching.

Our physio at the top tries to regulate everything and make sure we all stay safe.
Notice the raised arm.

Today was a bit flustered.I did some gs, then rushed down to the bottom, changed into my slalom boots and equipment, and headed back up the gondola for some gs.

All in all, the last three days have been incredible. We move to Pitztal (the cattle farm for athletes) tomorrow. Hopefully I will have more pictures soon.

Oh and... walking to breakfast my first morning I saw a cow on someone's front porch/veranda/balcony. It greeted me on my way down... new pet?
