Ski Season in New Zealand

The ski season has just started in New Zealand. The mountains have just opened but the skiing is not perfect.  I started strong this year skiing on with QAST the second day the mountain opened. My two coaches this year are Mats, an old coach from last year, and a new Italian coach called Marco.

Yesterday I made a mistake! I was at dryland and we were doing piggy back races and I was catching up to first and then my foot dug into the gravel and I fell twisting my foot. So now i’m home with my leg up and a cast around my ankle. I’m lucky I didn’t break my foot, it was only a fracture. I am off the snow for two weeks maybe then then I will be back on the snow skiing. Plus i’m not missing anything my gym got kicked out because of being two loud when they drop their weights and the snow on the mountain is really bad, the might even close the mountain.

Hopefully by next week I will be back on the snow skiing and getting ready for my first race of the season.

School holiday training

Over the school holidays i have been skiing with lots of different coaches because my coach Grant was sick. I skied with Timmy, Natalie, Robin, and Emily. When Grant was back it was fun. Grant is Scottish and loves skiing (so do i). Grant is from Scotland. in the first weak. We did some tests to see how good we where.this is some off them:

Rail way tracks.
Leap turns.
Hockey stops.

On the second weak we did lots of gates. I also went for first tracks with dad. My favourite run is hurdle because I tuck down it.

I LOVE SKING!

Opening day at Coronet Peak

To day was the first day of the season. I started on easy rider because tigne my brother

was having trouble . 🙂 After. we went to the m1. 🙂 I was skiing on my new rosignol 1.45

skis. I thought they where excellent because I could carve supper well. Before I started

with my mums skis that are 1.48 they where pink and black to start until me and dad

covered them in black tap and skiing stickers
