Back at it!

This is officially the first blog of my Ski Cross career! My apologies for no prior entries… In multiple months, ahem. The title isn’t lying though, I’m back at it and will be blogging on the reg.

I am currently in Saas Fee, Switzerland with the SX national team! Today was my second day on a real SX course, and I don’t think I could be having any more fun doing this than I am right now. I love it. Every run I came down the course I had a huge smile on my face the past two days and my entire body was literally buzzing with excitement and adrenalin!

I feel like I have progressed even in the last two days of this camp in a pretty big way. I am comfortable on the course hitting all the jumps (that are not AT ALL similar to downhill jumps), staying clean and smooth (most of the time) in the big long bank turns and getting my feet working in the rollers! I have started to stay close behind and follow other athletes on the team (guys and girls) to help judge my speed going off the jumps but more to just get used to being on a track with other skiers!

About

My first name is Alice. I'm called by my middle name, Georgia. I grew up getting beat up by my 3 older brothers Christian, Boyd and Julian. They rock. I love pretty much every sport there is, except maybe rhythmic gymnastics. I wonder who invented that one? Cooking is a fun pastime on a rainy day. The feeling of being on the brink of disaster, going as fast as possible, is indescribable. And I'm not talking about driving a car. It feels awesome being completely and utterly exhausted after giving 110% during a workout. I tell my mother everything (almost)... Examining snowflakes fall onto my jacket while on the chair lift could keep me bewildered for hours(haha, ok maybe not HOURS). I'm pretty sure I make myself laugh too often. Listening to music with my headphones keeps me sane. Making someone smile is contagious. Finishing a knitting project, such as a wicked awesome headband, is totally satisfying. I love being Canadian and having people laugh after I say the words "eh" and "toque". And it happens often. Having friends around the globe is a really cool thing. Experiencing different cultures is eye opening. Traveling all over the world is the best thing, but there is nothing like flying into Vancouver, eating a home cooked meal with my family, and falling asleep in my own bed.
