Hello from Colorado
Wednesday, November 23, 2005

The season is upon us. Seasonal ski areas across the U.S. are running their lifts and opening their doors. There is no better time to un-strap our race skis, buckle our boots, slid into the gate, and, most importantly, pull the trigger. Four days of Nor-Am racing starts on Monday, November 28. The Nor-Ams competitions are the premiere ski races in North America other than World Cup events so next week racers from all over the globe will be ready to prove that summer and full training has paid off. Hopefully, Team SRI, the ski team that I am part of, will lead the charge.

After an uneventful drive cross county, we've had some good training and better free skiing (i.e. skiing without gates) out here in Colorado. Over the past week we've been training at A-Basin warming up for the Nor-Ams and of course acclimating to living at 10,000 feet above sea level- it's always a pleasure to be out of breath after running up the stairs. I guess some things never change.

Either way, early mornings and turkey will dominate the next few days. But, I just wanted to drop you all a line and let you know that game time is in the immediate future.

Hope all is well and Happy Thanksgiving!
