TeamToday Updates – Kuusamo, Davos, and Silverstar

Writes Andy Newell on TeamToday:

“Davos is one of those towns that you go to and it makes you realize how big skiing is in Europe. Each small village and hotel is connected by perfectly groomed ski trails, creating the ideal terrain for easy distance skiing. Some trails are double tracked for classic and others for skating, but the amount of kilometers that you can cover in a day is incredible. The fact that they somehow get it all groomed every night is pretty amazing in itself, and the number of skiers out on the trails is more than I’ve seen anywhere in the word. We call it ‘march of the penguins’, huge herds of tourists plotting along in the tracks, migrating from one coffee shop to the other. It’s pretty funny to see.”

However, today was one of those rare days in my life where everything just seemed to slow down, where all my bodily senses seemed to take in the world to a much greater degree and clarity and where my life itself and what it consists of made me feel like the luckiest person alive.
