For me, December was full of holiday celebrations, family-time, travel and skiing….just like it is supposed to be!
Christmas Cookies are a must!
Before I hit the road, I had a Christmas cookie decorating party with my mom and Cody Marshall!
My first races of the month were the North American Cups in beautiful Panorama Mountain Resort, British Columbia.
It is always nice to stand on the top of a podium!

I was lucky enough to have my mom and brother keeping me company!
I hope everyone got to see the full moon on Christmas, this is an Italian church in St. Vigilio!
Early Mornings in the French Alps!
The last stop of our trip was the World Cup giant slalom in Lienz Austria where I was very happy to score my first World Cup points of the season with a 25th place :-)

I spent the month of November doing lots of skiing, racing and hanging out with great friends from the ski community!
I had some really fast runs but am still working on managing my expectations for myself to turn those fast runs into happy race days :-)
I want to wish everyone a HAPPY HOLIDAY season!!!

The last month of my ski season was very exciting with sixteen race starts in twenty-seven days!
Here are some pictures of the month’s highlights:
I was second place in the Overall North American Cup Giant Slalom standings which gives me a guaranteed World Cup start for the 2015-16 season!
I am so excited about my newest sponsor, Lagunitas Brewing Company! Shout out to Leon from the World Cup in Åre, Sweden, thank you for your support!
I ended U.S. National Championships as the National Combine Champion, 3rd place in Giant Slalom and 3rd place in Slalom in Sugarloaf, Maine
It is always nice to be on the podium! This is in the finish of the Giant Slalom at U.S. National Championships with Nina O’Brien (1st place) and Paula Moltzan (2nd place)
