IN one week my life has returned! Skiing truly is the best thing in the world! I have now completed 6 days on snow. It has been very incredible watching video over the past week as I remember how to ski! The first 4 days showed incredible improvement that is very visible on camera. Now I am working on smaller chamges and it is less easy to decipher the differences in my skiing. I am now working on a very early short pressure, moving forward over the ski, and not letting my inside hand drop. I don't think I can remember when I last had the chance to freeski for so many days in a row. It has been a wonderful opportunity for me to improve!
Today we had a day off. My teamate Steph Irwin, our coach Walter Alber and Jeff Frisch all went down to the town of Visp for lunch. It was great to get out of the resort. Zermatt is a very popular tourist destination to say the least. You are constantly surrounded by people here so it was wonderful to go to a non touristy spot! We had lunch at an amazing pizzeria that served real Italian pizza's. Pizza with egg on it is simply the best! After a cappuccino we went and bought chocolate for our talented physio in residence Lili then headed back up the valley to the Matterhorn!
Tomorrow I am starting stubby gates (small rubber gates that are designed for drills). I am quite excited to put my skiing back into gates! Ciao!
