Mt. Hood 2013

If you have read my previous post then you will know that I recently graduated from high school. If you haven’t, well now you know! The day after graduation I travelled to Mt. Hood, Oregon for a ten day camp with the team.

We were greeted with blue skies and +20 degree weather. The snow was fairly consistent and for most of the camp the snow surface was frozen first thing in the morning allowing for a quick start to the day. The camp focus was on GS and adapting to the new dimensions of GS skis. Overall the camp was a huge success. I managed to ski nine days with minimal pain in my knee and made some key changes in my skiing. I am happy to say that I had an excellent camp and had a lot of fun. Two things you can’t always necessarily say when referring to Mt. Hood (weather dependant).

I am now in Whistler and we have started our July dryland camp. This camp will be mostly in gym workouts, bike hill sprints and yoga. We had our first hill sprint session today and let me tell you it never gets easier!

I’ll keep it short today and try to do a couple smaller updates throughout my time here!
