World Championships in Garmisch!
Posted March 6, 2011on:
So the big news this February in the ski world was World Championships. I was happy to be a part of our incredible American team and lucky to be able to snag these cool ski pictures from photographer Jon Margolis.
The photo above was taken during my warm-up for the championship giant slalom race. Notice the fog creeping over the course in the back ground!
Above is a picture I took from the gondola looking down on the giant slalom start about an hour after the warm-up photo further up. We had a two hour race delay due to fog before getting a good race off that afternoon.
Below is a picture of teammate Ted Ligety accepting his gold medal. It was so inspirational to see a friend standing up there amongst all the waving American flags.
And the next morning woke up to a sunlit slalom course with lots of fans cheering at the bottom!
