Finishing up Finals is probably going to be one of the longest most mentally draining processes because of the excitement of next year welling up. The plan is to live and ski in Breck. CO from the 18th of December onto the end of ski season, April 24th. I will be taking the semester off of school and away from Berkeley until the Fall semester of 2011 (graduating is a priority). While away, I will be living the life of a skier in training. That's early mornings of training from 8:30-4 three days a week with a team and coaches, as well as another 3 days of hitting the "park" to get reps in of the skills I will be learning. Woodward is a facility 30 minutes away in Copper that is specially for freestyle ski training. They have Olympic trampolines and ramps with foam pits designed for those of us who find pleasure out of jumping way too high in the air. I will start this journey when I get home on the 17th and continue through the winter and early spring. This Blog is to keep the ones I love updated since we all know I am terrible with my phone and will probably be worse with the long hours of training and early bedtimes!!!!! The support has been awesome and the love from friends and family is something that I will be carrying with me daily on this crazy quest to the X-games and hopefully the Olympics! It won't be easy, I miss my team already.
