... of ways: skiing at high speeds up to 130km through challenging turns, shallow dips, flats, and jumps. This course had all these elements in it, as well as a big jump intended to complicate matters just before the finish, which was thrill both for the racer and the spectators.

... for him to do this. I wanted to track down a friend from Thredbo who also works at Beaver Creek. It was great to catch up with Sarah Jones and the surprise on her face when I walked into her office was worth it. I was the last person she expected to see in Beaver Creek.

We also have seen this bird around Aspen as well. Found out he is a Black Billed Magpie. Different to our magpies in Australia especially as they have very long tails. However they still have ...

Woke with an air of expectation this morning as yesterday had been mindblowingly good. It was a cool, crisp morning around -7c. Felt just like home! Scrambled once again up the snow covered hill to the grandstand. The World Cup Ladies Slalom Course was all laid out and we were able to see it from top to bottom.

Once again we cheered on all nations and a huge cheer for our Aussie, Greta Small. This was her first World Cup Slalom start. Unfortunately Greta straddled the ...
