So far, the camp has been awesome. We all got to Seattle around the same time and then the twelve of us, ten athletes and two coaches, drove up to Whistler together in a Sun Valley van. We are staying in Zach and Amy’s old house, which is nice, but there isn’t any furniture so we have had a fun time decorating the house with Chuck Norris and Bob Marley posters. I am staying in Gunnar’s old room with Adele.br /In the mornings, we drive up to the Olympic venue and train with the USST. On Friday we did an easy skate on the road leading to the venue and then we finished off the ski by skiing around on the Olympic trails for a little bit. Up at the venue, there are about three or four kilometers of paved trails which are really nice to ski on. On the way back, we swam at an awesome lake with huge cliffs to jump off and a rope swing. Most people jumped off of a fifty-foot cliff, I was one of the people who didn’t do because I am terrified of heights. In the afternoon, we ran out to a park in Squamish and did a strength circuit. It was fun, first we had a game of ultimate Frisbee and then we did jumps and strength, which made us all sore the next day. At the park there was a really cool playground that we played on after the strength. While we were working out, our mother, Ben Husaby, cooked us tortellini and pork, which was very delicious, and then we watched the Big Labowski and went to bed.br /Saturday was level three classic intervals in the morning at the Olympic venue. It was fun, it is pretty cool to be able to see all the really fast skiers skiing right next to you. In the afternoon we took a beautiful run/hike. We drove up a really rocky dirt road to get there and picked up a hitchhiker from England. When we started hiking, we were in the trees for a while, but then we got above the tree line and there were beautiful mountains all around us. I brought the camera on the hike so I got some pictures. For dinner we had some delicious quesadillas and then we watched Dumb and Dumber before going off to bed.br /This morning, we went up to the Olympic venue and did skate speeds. It was a really fun workout. We had three separate groups and three stations that we would rotate through. The groups were all random so we got to ski with a bunch of good people. My group had Chris Cook and Liz Stephen, so Jessie and I got to follow Liz on a few speeds. It is a great way to learn and you can see that we are definitely slower than the national team people, but we are not all that far behind. The weather has been amazing and the trip has been great. I have been able to ski with awesome skiers and meet a lot of really fun people. Here are some pictures of the hike and the Olympic venue, just click them to make them big.div class=”blogger-post-footer”img width=’1′ height=’1′ src=’https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/tracker/4680416899705879324-8328298202839153432?l=smsxc.blogspot.com’//div
