Thank you to my family, friends, donors and sponsors who stood by me on some really, REALLY hard days!  Ski racing independently wouldn’t be possible without you!

You can watch my Giant Slalom runs from St. Moritz here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C8V-5p56QoA

We successfully ended the preparation period and have started race season full swing!  After three weeks of training in Colorado my racing is off to a good start with some competitive runs, cold temperatures and fun!  I have my first two podiums of the season under my belt, a second place in FIS giant slalom and a third place in North American Cup super combine.  I will be spending the next month in Europe chasing the so far elusive World Cup result!
