Here we go. First official downhill training on the season and Lake Louise is delivering - 27c and real winter conditions
At the @phenixski international sales meetings in Vail. Looking at designs for next winter.
Lake Louise in the summer. Will check it out in winter style next week. Regram @awesome.earth
Colorado Training Colorado is the place to be in November. With Europe struggling with warm temperatures it seems that Colorado is your safest bet to get good training. The ski resorts here being at about 3500 meter altitude is close to a guarantee that you´ll get low temperatures. Because of this it is also crowded. Almost every downhill team on the World Cup seems to be here. Every day of training is a mini World Cup race. Both on the mens and the womens side. Americans, Germans, Austrians, Swiss and Norwegians training on the same mountain. Looking at each other trying to figure out who looks strong for the winter. Thanks to a good cooperation with the American team we´ve gotten some really good days. Now we´ve got this week, and then it´s off to Lake Louise for the first downhill world cup. I think we´re as prepared as we could hope for, so lets see what happens;)
