It seems like a lifetime ago we were in Canmore racing and tomorrow we finally get to get down to business. The skiing has been different every day and today was definitely the best. It has been getting barely below freezing if at all so they salted the course today and that turned sloppy skiing into hard fast skiing, pretty amazing. Today was a little ski testing, although Erik is taking care of the majority of that work for me, and one lap of the race course a little under race pace to get the feel of how the course races. Felt the best I have yet and am so ready to race.
On the village life side of things, the sliders (luge, bobsled, and skeleton) showed up yesterday so the USA contingent has grown considerably, both in size and number. Some pretty cool people to talk to as well.
We have live TV feeds from all the venues in our rooms which is so awesome and something everyone should have. So after skiing this morning I got to come back and watch Teela have a very solid day finishing 9th in the biathlon sprint and the nordic combiners are set to go before long after a good morning of jumping for most of them.
