No posts for a couple of days since arriving in Champoluc due to issues with internet.
We arrived on Tuesday with freeskiing on Wednesday.
Wednesday - It hasn’t snowed for a while here but there’s still a fair amount of soft snow and powder around for playing in (balance and coordination work!).
Thursday saw another sunny day with later start and tech work, followed by slalom gate training above Champoluc after lunch. As the races have been moved, we’re having to train after the local club which means after lunch. This has given us the opportunity to do tech work first then gate training.
Today was another day of slalom gate training following on from tech work prior to lunch on a great piste in the sun. The boys are skiing well and are prepared for the slalom. With tomorrow being new years day, we have the training piste from lifts opening so we’ll be out early in the morning. That means possibly muted celebrations tonight but it’ll be worth it for a good mornings training.
Happy new year to everyone!
