We just finished up our last training camp of the year in Park City. It was another 2 weeks block, like our camp in August, but this time there were significantly more people there besides just the APU team. Nearly every major club brought their full elite teams, plus there were a lot of individuals there as well. It had snowed a bit there before the camp started, but we were lucky enough to get really good weather.

The benefit of this camp was having the top 50-60 skiers in the country all there training together. It brings a whole new set of skills, techniques, and approaches that haven’t been seen when we are all spread out in the summer.

The falltime colors there were amazing. I loved the contrast here between the foothills and these snowy peaks:

A couple minor storms rolled through, leaving small amounts of precipitation, but more impressive were their rainbows:

Looking over at another 9000ft ridge from our house… quietly waiting. Waiting for that legendary Utah powder to engulf it all. Things were silent this time of year, but they won’t be for long:

It was a really productive camp. The training was hard, but that makes it worthwhile. I really want to take a second to say a HUGE “THANK YOU” to Zuzana Rogers, who is one of our pt’s from Advanced Physical Therapy. She came down with us to help keep our bodies from falling apart due to the training, and she was an immeasurable asset. Thanks so much Zuzana!

Now I’m back in Alaska to ski on snow and make the final training preparations for racing. Yeehaw.
