saw the BV crew sharing a training lane with some female World Cup athletes from Slovakia, Poland, & Italy who competed at the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver. Probably the best experience our young athletes have had in their racing career! I must say they stepped it up a notch and all skied better than I have ever seen them ski. Not kidding!! I am very proud of each of them! We used a timing system and were between 2.5 to 6 seconds off the pace they were setting on roughly a 40 second GS course.
It was an amazing day!
At the end of training we posed for pictures with a couple of the athletes for the scrap book and one of the World Cup athletes shared her memories of being a young girl with a similar experience which fueled her passion for ski racing. Then we skied off to Italy for lunch at Plateau Rosa from which you can see Mont Blanc, France or turn around and throw a stone back into Switzerland. Very incredible views in every direction.
An unforgettable day for all of us!
That is the Matterhorn directly behind us.
