So this is a little different than my normal posts but I’m hoping to spread the word:) Even with all my WONDERFUL sponsors, a competition season has a lot of costs! GoFundMe is a great website where you can collect donations towards a goal, the link to my site is http://www.gofundme.com/eu7850 . Donations from the community are appreciated so much and mean so much more than just helping with training and competing costs. Thanks for looking and I hope you follow along with my adventures!
I have spent this last week at Copper Mountain, Colorado running gates with the Steamboat Alpine team. It felt so great to get my board back under me and to practice some real fundamentals with gate training. I also had the opportunity to check out a Crossfit LowOxygen located in Frisco a couple times, and got some good high elevation training in! I’ll now be back in AK for a couple weeks (opening of Alyeska) and then will be back in CO to start training for the winter! Looking forward to a great healthy season!
I have decided to return back to Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club for the 2014/15 SBX season and am really excited for all the opportunities it will have to offer me. This off season I have been working a ton but still making time for off mountain training. I started doing Crossfit and it has been a great addition to my training. I have even done some of the competitions and it has been great for keeping my fire fueled! I feel stronger than ever going into this season and can’t wait to hit the slopes!
My competition season has ended but that doesn’t mean I’m done snowboarding. Alyeska put on a great banked slalom that my whole family was able to participate in! So thankful that I get opportunities to spend time with the family and do what I love. Keep up the great work Alyeska!! Also a little bonus, Sarina and I both won snowboards and levi won some goggles! Thanks Ak Boardroom and Oakley for hooking us up.
Super fun course back here in Big White. Managed to make my way all the way to finals for Junior Championships but then took another hard fall (I need to stop doing that to myself!) and ended up in 4th. I was riding really well and felt super confident so I am happy with it. Everything can’t always go the way we plan!
Snowboarding in t-shirts is always fun, and so is standing on a podium:) Took a really hard fall in the final heat on the first day, so I was in rough condition for the second race day. However still very happy with my third place finish! Shout out to Mt.Hood for putting on a great event, and having such a delightful crew working the event.
