The return to snow protocol after my injury has now turned into a return to race protocol. The last two camps, one in Switzerland and one in Alberta, have been phenomenal in terms of progression and getting comfortable again on my boards. I have had zero complications with my knee thus far and am thrilled with the way it is responding to increased stress and strength testing. Our camp in Switzerland lasted for 17 days in October. My focus was to get comfortable hitting jumps, running courses and following teammates down the track. Despite a few expected weather days the camp was top notch. This past training block in Nakiska lasted only five days. The focus for the week were starts and lead-follow training in a half GS half Super-G hybrid course. This camp was exactly what I needed because I gained confidence hitting jumps and running a ski cross course in Switzerland and really had the opportunity to hone in on my starts and passing skills in Nakiska.
