Behind The Season

When will you stop pursuing your goals? When will you be happy? Here, I reflect on my season and what keeps me motivated.

What’s cooler than being cool?

Yukon once again outdid itself in beauty… and being the coldest place known to man. What’s the best thing about living in -25? Awesome snow conditions, of course! I was able to test out my new boots and am very excited about the results. The second best thing about training in -25 was that we…

Chile 2017

Back at it! Summer training finished up with 3 weeks at El Colorado in Chile. . Since the camp was three weeks, we had room to play around with unorthodox training drills.

If You Don’t Fall, You’re Not Trying Hard Enough

The latest and greatest training camp was spent primarily in Italy. First stop was at my all time favourite place, Kreuzbergpass. Here, we overcame jet lag with two long training days right off the bat. The hill itself is specific to training. It consists of one dynamic run with a good pitch, fallaway, flats, and a quick…
