Yesterday, Marie-Michele and I met up with photographer John Evely to gets some shots for Cannondale mountain bikes and Sugoi clothing!!! It was really fun and we got to check out the Hoodoo trail which was awesome! P.S. I look very Canadian in these shots haha!!! I'm turning a little more canadian every day- I can sense it! And somehow that doesnt bother me! Its really cool up here in the great white north. Also, Sugoi is a Canadian company so I didn't argue! Check them out!!!

Check out the next installment of My Skiing Life, Webisode 2: Kitzbuhel. I will be continuing to film and edit my travels and adventures while racing on the World Cup Downhill and Super-G tour as a member of the US Ski Team. Here is a look at the most prestigious, most challenging, and most dangerous world Cup Downhill in the world. If you win the Hahnenkamm Downhill in Kitzbuhel Austria, you are instantly remembered as a legend of the sport! This season was my first time getting to race down that hill, and it was a lot of fun! I gained some valuable experience and I cant wait to come back next season and do even better, although I was really fired up finishing in the top 30 in my first start! So check it out! Kitzbuhel: the Super Bowl of skiing!

So this summer I will be living in Canmore, Alberta right on the border of Banff National Park! I just drove all the way up here from Tahoe and will be living with my girlfriend and training here. Today was my first day back training and I went on my first Canmore Adventure. I went on a mountain bike ride up to Spray Lake and the views were amazing! I think I am going to like this place!

So when I uploaded this video on youtube, it didn't work for some people so I just did it again using Vimeo and here it is! And its way bigger! I think I may like Vimeo more! Anyway, enjoy a look at the skiing and the vibe back at the Lost Trail Lodge in between Squaw and Sugar Bowl. It is a really cool spot! I highly recommend checking it out!

A look at the terrain and the vibe skiing out at the Lost Trail Lodge up Cols Stream Canyon in the Tahoe Sierra. Cold Stream Canyon is on the Sierra Crest in between Squaw Valley and Sugar Bowl. It is an amazing place and I will definitely go back. Since we went in the spring, corn was the name of the game, but midwinter pow skiing there would be legendary.
