Today I was telling my mom that I felt bad because I have not written a blog post in a long time because I have not been very inspired to write lately so she said just put up a bunch of pictures and let them tell the stories. So thats exactly what I am going to do.... with a little bit of writing.
I finally made it Canmore, Alberta where the skiing was great especially compared to the 1/2km loop in Craftsbury. In Canmore I did a Noram race and a couple of time trials and we had our IBU cup trials. The IBU cup trials started a little rocky and I was a ways down the results page mostly because my skiing was not super fast. With each race my skiing felt better and my shooting stayed consistently good. The last two races I placed 3rd and 1st. I was really happy to finally pull things together at the end. My results were just good enough to get me named to the IBU cup team so I will be leaving on January 4th to race in Europe on the IBU cup circuit for 3 weeks. I am now at home for Christmas enjoying the amazing winter we are having in the Pacific Northwest.

|Revisiting the crash site in Canmore was pretty crazy, I flew threw the air much further then I thought probably about 50 feet before hitting the tree. The red arrows show where I left the trail and the tree that I hit.|
|I went snowmobiling for the first time in a year and it was AMAZING, I couldn't have asked for better conditions|
