Lake Louise, Alberta may not be one of the more difficult DH courses on the FIS World Cup, but it’s one of the best places to race. After a week of wild-ass weather, today is classic LL: cold as a witch’s tit, clear, sunny, fast, great racing snow. Not a bad place to race, eh cowboy?
Gun Barrel, Claire’s Corner, Finish. Once again, the “Sled Dogs” have come through, and yesterday’s blizzard is but a memory.
The men at Crack of the Beave in Colorado have the early TV slot this week, so our training runs and races are starting an hour later than normal. Hence, a leisurely, civilized breakfast in the morning at the Chateau Lake Louise, followed by a little time to stretch and do a few minutes of yoga. Ahhhhhhhhh.
