We used the final practice and race day at Holiday Valley as a ‘mock’ Nationals. Most of the video is from the practice day. The start section on practice day was not quite groomed out and shaped for race conditions, which created some interesting features to handle right out of the gate. The rest of the course was in good shape and would give us a solid warm-up for the Copper course.

Practice…practice…practice; we finally had time and decent conditions to put in some real solid on-snow training. There was one race day left at Holiday Valley and then the next event would be Nationals out at Copper Mountain, CO. The idea was to focus on a few technical riding skills that needed improvement and use the upcoming New York races as a ‘mock’ Nationals. Even though everyone was excited to gear up for Nationals and do as much racing practice as possible, it was important to maintain some level of balance and keep up with the gym training too.

The next competition was in our home region, the Appalachian Series, with Wisp Resort in Maryland hosting the 2 re-scheduled races (postponed earlier in the season due to bad conditions/weather). Besides steady improvement with technical riding, our other main goal for the event was to qualify for Nationals. If each athlete could win gold in both races they’d get an automatic bid for Nationals by being the Series Champion.
