Another Awesome weekend!
This weekend was another awesome weekend for that! Each weekend of the winter seems to get better than teh one before! I get stronger, my head gets more clear and I enjoy my sport better in the afternoon that I did when I started in the morning. I guess not pushing and doing it 12 months a year allows me to feel that way!
This weekend was one of the events that I coordinate for a professional training series for instructors. They are on Fridays which allows me a couple of hours of skiing on a work day. They are a great opportunity for me to get out on my own and do some focused training while not surrounded by other weekend staff and clients. I spend a couple of hours 100% focused on my goal and not teaching or working with others. It allows me to evaluate where I am and to decide on strategies on order to continue to move forward. It is no different than triathlon, just on snow and freezing cold.
Corbet's Couloir a little fluffier on the landing and the other skiing an absolute delight. It has been a couple of years since I have big mountain skied so I looking forward to the trip in a big way. I was able to get some good photos this weekend of myself skiing, it is not often that I can get shots like these. I hired a pro photographer for the event that I organized and he took the photos that are attached. I am excited as they make it look like I can ski quite well! LOL
The week is now here so time to put on the training shoes and fins again. It is all good as it will get me ready for another great weekend on the snow and my trip. As well it is a great base for when the real training started in March. It is all good and I am loving life right now! WAhoo!
