The World Cup Ski Racing season of 2008-2009 has begun with the giant slalom on the 25th in Soelden, Austria. The injected glacier set up very well and we had beautiful weather on race day. The great snow helped the challenging pitch in Soelden be a little less intimidating and although it felt rough on the way down, I had a personal best on the World Cup circuit finishing in 14th place. It was exciting to be able to bring my skiing from training this summer in New Zealand and Chile to the race hill. Along with on snow training, I did a lot of physical conditioning this summer and am ready for the race season to start full swing. After a good start in Soelden, I am looking forward to our next race in Aspen, Colorado on Thanksgiving weekend and am hoping to see a lot of fans out on the slopes!
