I used our team summertime quote "be better" as the basis for my latest skipresse article!  The online version just came out and I think it turned out to be pretty cool!! Check it out, page 44
And the quote continues on the hill these days as we are all pushing our limits in slalom and GS looking to clear up the little details: be cleaner, no mistakes, consistency.  It's an exciting camp in that I am finally trying out new things, different Head equipment, and getting a feel for what is right for me. I'm skiing relaxed and flowing, all the while trying to cut the line and create as much speed as I can!
Here's another video, pretty similar, but different!!

AND some more pics from the last few days!
One of the most intense parts of our day is getting to the top of the mountain... waiting in lines for gondolas and a train, getting pushed, squished, and overwhelmed by other skier's body odours.  It's intense.
Before it all begins....
 mentally preparing for the push.
 About an hour later we arrive up here!  The snow is getting browner and browner, and the crevasses seem to be opening up a little more each day.  The conditions of our lanes have been awesome, so as long as no one's falling down random holes, we're all good.
 gates gates gates and more gates.
 Skiing parallels, freestylers in the "powder" to the left, racers on the "ice" to the right.
 hole in the course!..... these random holes are all over the glacier, huge crevasses peeking out at us.... kinda scary!
 our broken friend.... 
 APRES SKI!!! Martin VS. Hugues in tennis!! 
 I didn't have time to get a sweet pic of Hugues, but I heard he was throwing down some nasty serves!!
 sun setting behind the hill.....
 And how else to finish a great Swiss day other than with RACLETTE for dinner!! yummy cheese!! Jeff and Hans came and enjoyed Hugues' feast with us!
We only have a couple more days left which I will use for a last block of SLALOM of course!
