I’m back in VT after flying home from Europe and driving directly up to Craftsbury for the final races of the year. As someone who doesn’t get to race too often domestically it’s really cool to see everyone and catch up on everything going down in the US ski world. Unfortunately I must have picked up a bad cold flying home and by the time I reached Craftsbury 2 days later I was feeling pretty crappy. So I was bummed I didn’t get to race any skis last week, it’s kind of a lame unexpected way to end the season but sometimes that’s just the way it is.
Now I’m back home trying to get healthy, planing out the summer schedules, and hopefully getting outside as much as I can. I hadn’t been on alpine skis at all since last spring and really needed to ski at least once so my buddy and I skinned up Stratton the other day. It involved a lot of sliding around on dirt and and grass but we got the job done. With no snow left here at home I’ll be spending the next week or so catching up with the VT crew, building, dusting off the skateboard, and getting out on the motorcycle. As nice as it is I think I need some waves though so a surf trip is in the works for next week. here are a few pics from the past 2 weeks.
