What an awesome first day! We made the commute up to the glacier this morning via the whistler gondola, Peak to Peak, a shuttle bus and the 7th heaven chair! It’s a long haul, but it has to be the best commute to work you will ever do. A few of the girls spotted the first black bear of the week. Sure to be lots more!
We started off the morning with free ski warm up drills focussing on stance, balance and generating movement in the legs. Lots of runs were crushed and lots of smiles with the beautiful morning that greeted us up above the clouds. After a good snack break we got into some drill courses with brushes and stubbies, sticking with the movement and balance focus. We had one unfortunate incident with a unwanted meeting of a tbar and a few teeth, but after a check up it looks like all is well and the tough ski sister will be back to ski another day!
A delicious, well deserved lunch of spaghetti and wraps was devoured after another long commute down before heading out for dryland. Dryland was a fight against the rain and a slow run over to Alta lake where the girls ran through a good core work out on the dock followed by jumping in with no care for the rain! These are some tough gals!
A dinner of tacos by Leslie is being served up this evening to make sure the girls stay fueled for another big day tomorrow. Anna is getting ready for a slalom talk at the nightly meeting full with world cup video and insider tips 🙂
The girls worked so hard today and the attitudes on the hill and in dryland were phenomenal. So far the group has been slowly bonding and friendships starting to form. Looking forward to seeing how it all develops throughout the week! Daily photos are below!
