I just got back from my first week back on snow after my shoulder surgery. It’s coming along nicely. I wasn’t quite far enough post-op to starting sending it in the course, and spent a lot of time getting used to my new Stoeckli’s.
Yes, I switched to Stoeckli, and I’m pretty stoked about that. I ran the course in sections many times and got my airs dialed-in. I actually had a bit of a break-through with my technique in the air. I nailed the big table-top over and over again.
We have new physiotherapists and they are really great. I was able to work with Chris Napier a ton while we were up at camp and he got me on to some new progressions of my shoulder exercises. He and Dave Terlicher will be sharing the physio duties for the season.
The really nice thing about this camp was that I got to share my world with my sister. She came up to try out for the team. She improved more than anyone could have ever imagined she would. Despite not having been on race skis since she was about 14, she was pinning it right off all of the jumps with solid skill by the end of the camp.
