My wife and I got to follow him and three teammates as they made a couple of free-skiing runs this afternoon at Beaver Creek.

It was very cool.

Bet he really struggles off piste, though. As you know, European skiers can only handle the groomed. Heard that somewhere around here...

How are things at Beaver Creek right now anyway?

Cover was very, very thin.

We only skied there yesterday. I spent this AM at the Steadman clinic and then we drove back here to JH. Our snow is MUCH better right now.

Yeah.

He really looked like he would struggle. Or maybe not.

Hard to say, though. The snow cover was so thin that only a moron would have been off piste.

Sorry.  This was kind of a quick down-and-back trip to get my foot looked at.  I didn't even have the camera with me.  For some strange reason, I totally spaced off until after we had made the lodging arrangements the fact that the WC races would be going on.  Otherwise we probably would have tried to spend a little more time there and I would have brought the camera.

 

The skiing at Beaver Creek was good on the runs where they've made snow but there was very little snow on the other slopes.  They need more snow pretty badly.  But it's very cool to ski at a place that's overrun with World Cup skiers because you see them out free-skiing.  Nobody skis with the power and precision that those guys (and girls) do.  Wow.
