Ski Camp glutton

While most of my team mates are killing it on the Cyclocross scene, I’ve been home learning how to make cross country skiing a better training tool…. as well as hoping to try my hand at some racing. I was invited to take part in two ski camps, the Glenn Bond ski camps and the Silver Star Super camps.  Both were fantastic! It felt so amazing to be back on skis. I spent 5 days living at Silver Star, footsteps away from the trails and got 2 lessons in a day separated by lunch at the Bull Dog.  There is nothing quite like living on the mtn and skiing from your door.  Rather than worrying about “getting in a work out” I wanted to be fresh for my lessons and get the most out of them.  It snowed every night and the conditions became more and more like wonderland. Leah Guloien and Sandra Walter join in for the weekend SuperCamp! Words of Wisdom After a week there, Keith and I had to test out the DH conditions at Sun Peaks and our local xc ski trails
