Zwiesel and a road trip to Europa Cups in Corchevel!

Posted on: February 10, 2011

The world cup in Zwiesel, Germany started off with weather like this,

And miraculously cleared for the race to weather like this,

I spent hours in the lodge and although there was some yummy cake I didn’t end up preforming to what I feel is my potential.  Since switching equipment at the beginning of this season it has been a struggle to figure out the set up that is the best for me.  As for now I am still hard at work trying to find my groove and still have hope for a end of season spike.

The search for my groove took us to Corchevel for some Europa cups.  With an enthusiastic coaching crew, therapist and technician extrodinaire, teammate, Hailey Duke, and I made a road trip out of it!

And of course I had to check out how the french do pastry!  In this picture I was especially interested in all the flavors of french macaroons.

As you have seen previously on this blog a berry tart with chantilly cream and pate sucre crust is my favorite and the waiter at our hotel gave me a silce of this beautiful one for free!

The journey continues to Abetone, ITA for some more giant slalom Europa cups before heading to  world championships in Garmisch.  I can’t wait for my up swing in results but until then I just keep smiling and working hard.
