First day of GS and we had a good one. The girls all had a lot of energy on the hill and it showed in their skiing. Everyone stepped up their game and worked hard in the GS drill courses. All four coaches were training and coaching the girls. A lot of sweet GS turns were being made on Palmer.
We ended up getting around eight runs in the courses. The girls are getting quality training especially because the weather has been cooperating this week. The ratio of athlete to coaches has also been helpful with the girls improvement. We have six coaches on the hill. Two of them Tara and Ali came on board to get training of their own and also coach. They have been essential to the camp as they are both high level FIS racers. Tara being an invitee to the D team this season. They also are working on their skiing and relating well to the girls during training.
For dryland we had an epic capture the flag game. Fun for everyone. Sara Hulbert found the flag and won the game for her team.
I have to give a shout out to my mom and my godmother. They have been waking up at 4am to feed the girls. I can honestly say I’ve never eaten this well at a ski camp. Everyone has been more than happy with the food. Thank you Mom and Jackie. You’re helping to make the camp great!!!
We have two more days left of GS. I’m excited to watch the girls continue to improve. Ski ya later!
