Pre-season camp Lillehammer

The last couple of weeks has been all about getting snow under my feet. First a couple of days at Beitostølen with Kollenhopp, then four days at Sjusjøen with Lyn ski and now four days in Lillehammer with Swiss-Ski. Its always great when you can replace rollerskis with real skis.

The first day in Lillehammer started great. I got some early christmas presents from Uvex.

The first xc-session was really nice. We started out from Nordseter in -13 C, but when the sun came up it got a lot better. The conditions was pretty good until we got to Pellestova. From there we went back with a detour in direction Sjusjøen.

The skijumping hill is not ready yet. Which is unfortunate, but they are producing snow around the clock so hopefully we will get to do some jumping this weekend.

All set in Park City

Then we are finally all set in Park City! Because of headwind over the atlantic my flight was almost an hour longer than sheduled. After a sprint through washington airport I barely made my connecting flight to Salt Lake. My skis on the other hand did not make it. Leaving me with one day less training before the comps. They finally arrived late yesterday evening.

We are staying at the Zermatt resort & spa in Midway. Its basically a town built by swiss emigrants, who have done a great job keeping their swissness, which is really cool.
