Phew, glad the first one is under our belts.
There’s so much anticipation entering the first carnival weekend that sometimes you feel like you really can’t enjoy the skiing that’s going on. Whelp, I definitely enjoyed this carnival weekend’s skiing – that’s for SURE! 3rd place overall on the weekend is definitely something to be happy with considering the competition! 3rd place also reminds me that we didn’t hit our FULL potential. AKA – Middlebury Skiing can be EVEN FASTER than 3rd on the weekend! Truth.
Regardless, a HUGE congrats to Rob Cone for his GS win and to Chris McKenna on being Mr. Consistent with a 3rd place finish in the GS. Those guys really know how to put it down the hill. And the cool thing is that our other carnival guys are right with them AND beating them in training! TEAM STACKED.[caption id="attachment_4548" align="aligncenter" width="300"] Cone racing back in 2011 Won this weekend’s GS at Bates Carnival[/caption]
With solid performances on our women’s side as well, we really did start the season off on the right foot.
Congrats to Nordic Teammate, Heather Moon-Dawg Mooney, on her insane DOUBLE VICTORY this weekend. This chick scored some massive points and I’m dubbing her the “Middlebury Skier of the Week.”
We just finished up an awesome high-volume session at the bowl pictured below, and can’t wait to get out there tomorrow and continue the push towards the weekend.[caption id="attachment_4549" align="aligncenter" width="300"] Training SL on Allen[/caption]
