My flight arrived in Zurich early yesterday morning and I made the 4 or 5 hour drive across the boarder to Valmalenco, Italy. The drive was beautiful, from foggy feilds of Switzerland and into the tiny winding streets of Italy.
Today was the first day of training. It lasted about a half hour because of the snow and rain that slowed the course down and made it impossible to clear jumps. By the end of the course my goggles were so rained over that I couldn’t see past the beads of water. The forecast is predicting more rain and snow tomorrow but Friday (the finals day) is supposed to clear up. Looks like some powder runs after qualifications tomorrow!
I just finished the first incredible, delicious Italian pizza of the trip and now its time to ciesta. Arrivederchi
