    • Period 4 consists of the 8 races Mar 3rd - Mar 21st

Happy Holidays From SVSEF

SVSEF Max DurtschiHappy Holidays! I hope that everyone is having a wonderful winter. My name is Max Durtschi, and I am a 16 yr. old (J1) junior ski racer from Sun Valley. FasterSkier has been kind enough to give me a blog on the website. I am really looking forward it. Through out this season I will be keeping you all up to date with the ski season through the perspective of a junior racer. This look at the racing season should be unique, and I think it will be interesting to see the differences between the season of a 10th grader, and that of a World Cup racer. As a blog reader myself, I know how much I enjoy pictures, so I am going to try to pack each update with lots of them.

Right now I am preparing for Senior Nationals in Houghton, MI, at home in Sun Valley. So far I think my season has been successful, but I know I have a lot of room to improve. Sun Valley leaves for Houghton on the 28th, and I will keep you up to date with my training and racing when I arrive there. In the mean time I hope to catch everyone up with my summer, fall, Thanksgiving training camp, and early winter. READ ON!!!
