After Aspen, I wanted to keep practicing racing so I went to Jackson Hole with the Europa cup girls and had a blast!
I want to thank everyone who keeps believing in me and going out of their way to help me with my skiing and on my journey. The past couple of weeks and months these people have been all of the Park City Ski Team staff, Jeff Pickering, Trevor Wagner and Prado with the Europa Cup team, my parents, my boyfriend Cody and my team mate Hailey Duke!
So in an effort towards the Noram overall I did two super G’s and two downhills in Aspen. Below are some photos by Mr. Caston of my efftort-take note of the wide eyes!
Because these were my first speed races in a long time, the speed felt really intense at first but got more managable as the week progressed. I was working on evening out my pressure and I think that, if anything, this focus will benefit my giant slalom and I am glad I did it!
To nurse my fears, I made sure to visit the bakeries of Aspen in the afternoons.
