Since we will be doing a time trial tomorrow morning, we took the afternoon on the light side. The skill of the day: balance. We went down to the campground, found a hill, and spent most of the time skiing with only one ski on, galavanting through slalom courses and cones. It was an absolute blast, even if some of us spent some time with our butts in the snow....
Enjoy some pictures!

|Koby's quick feet made for fast turns and strong climbing|
|#1 Slalomer of the day!!|
|Girls on fire|
|Downhill, one skied slalom: Russell never touched his feet to the ground.|
Somehow it was t-shirt weather (...???...). At least it was a Caldwell Sports shirt!
|The man... the legend... ELI!|
|Shuffling back up to the top|
|Despite being quite good on one foot, poor William happened to have an 'accident' as he passed the camera...|
|Ben was one of the strongest contestants during the one footed uphill/downhill relay race. I believe he fell on his face after this shot was taken....|
|What a smile..!|
|I hand picked Anna to be on my relay team (along with Tess), and couldn't have been happier to have raced beside her! She is a one-footed ski machine.|
|We later found Tegan in a slight predicament......|
All in all, this afternoon was a great time. Everyone left the relay with a smile, and have kept the great energy ever since. Lets hope those smiles are still here during the time trial tomorrow!

Though today's weather is not nearly as perfect as yesterday, the skiing was equally amazing. With hard packed tracks and good snow cover, many race skis made their first appearances of the season. We started the day with some basic classic drills to ensure that everyone was skiing with good technique for the duration of the workout: forward hips, good weight shift, strong glide, and good arm/leg swing.
Here are some pictures from the morning!

With some less-than-stellar weather rolling in, this afternoon will be something light and fun around the condos. Back to the snow tomorrow morning, though! Stay tuned.
