Rainy, snowy and warm days have begun; spring is really around the corner, but our season still has some major events coming up! We are gearing up for this weekend's worldcup in Oftershwang, Germany; practicing hard snow, soft snow, wet snow, salty snow and any kind of condition available in anticipation for whatever Germany has in store!
I raced in the rain in Lenggries, trained under the HOT sun in Bad Weissea, and now some flat-light here in Kirchberg.
here's a pic from my window
other than the rain and snow... I bought some sweet euro toothpaste the other day and guess who was on the box staring back at me? none other than marlies schild and benni raich! ha, amazing. Being a skier in Austria really seems to have it's perks...
Or if I won the contest....
Mach' mit! Whatever that means!
Me doing my best Austrian toothbrushing impression.
And, when not watching it rain/snow or toothbrushing austrian style, the girls and I have been bonding over some intense card games!! This is a new one I learned from my cousin in Verbier, the name is too scandalous for my blog, but in Marco's PG terms, "poopface" could be another less offensive name of the game.
this is me, losing.
And we received our "Believe in Sarah" and "Remember Sarah" stickers from http://shreddytimes.com/believe-in-sarah . A knee-rehab friend of mine in Tahoe, Michelle Parker created a way to honour and remember the memory and life of Sarah Burke; here's an excerpt from the page I have linked above:
We all put them on our helmets and will be racing the rest of the season with #believeinsarah and #remembersarah in honour of Sarah Burke and our mutual love for the sport of skiing in which she was such and inspiration.
