Icelantic!

SKI SPONSOR!!!!!!! and the most amazing birthday gift I could ever ask for. While I have not been on snow for about a month things have been quite busy. I've become a hot yoga fanatic while trying to prepare for New Zealand and more skiing!! My dad worked in Vail with the Operational manager of a Colorado based ski company called Icelantic and kinda gave him the low-down on what I was doing. He talked to the founder and they were stoked at the prospect of my ultimate goals (Xgames/ Olympics) so I'll be spreading the word in NZ and getting some pics and continuing the edit work with my 2 new SICK pairs of skis!! The company is really taking off especially for how young it is (only 6 years!). I had a meeting with the founder Ben today and got a tour around their Denver office and a look at next years sticks that I will be receiving! The artwork is unbelievable and the concept for their skis is innovative and exciting so I am hoping this is the beginning of a long and prosperous relationship!

Until New Zealand I'll be mounting my new skis and taking laps at A-basin which is still getting snow and having powder days on the REG (pretty impressive for mid-may). Not to mention coaching a little lacrosse and trying to tie the loose ends for the trip down to NZ aka Working Holiday Visa, banking... the whole nine yards. Its been nice having a little downtime but I have to admit that there isn't a day that goes by when I don't think about skiing. I am so ready to get back in the pipe and continue my progression and get revved up for next winter's competition season! So that's about it for the latest news from me but once I am down in New Zealand I will be sure to keep the blog posts flowingggg. Life is good, I have so much to be thankful for and even more to be excited about... I'm down for a crazy ride so we will see what happens!
