It is beautiful here. It is sunny and quite warm, meaning amazing visibility and great snow.
However, would you recognize us on the slopes?
We have moved on from our usual colours, and become CRAZY! You will not lose us in a snow storm!
Here is Anna and Martin showing off their cool new jackets! Martin wearing the men's lumberjack design.
I tried to take another picture of Anna, without looking, and this is what showed up on the screen. Martin contemplating the snow conditions and how to make us that much faster!
Colorado has always been a place that feels familiar and comfortable. It is where my family spent our family holidays before Christmas. My grandparents would always come with us, even when my parents could not. We would ski hard all day, shop and drink warm drinks in the afternoon, watch Christmas cartoons, and stop at gas stations to collect free Christmas ornaments at night. These vacations were some of the highlights of my childhood, so it amazing to be back again!
Obviously when we are bored on the slow chair, motorboating becomes a normal thing to do. THIS ONE IS AMAZING!
You can actually see the movement of my lips... horselike?
Here is a more normal one to end off with!
Friday is our last day of training in Loveland and then we move to Aspen, to look at different, equally as beautiful mountains!
Eve- simply admiring the view....
As promised, here is the schedule for the World Cup races this season, including men/women and all events. It appears as if most of the races will be covered by either CBC or Rogers Sportsnet.
