Last weekend, Whistler hosted four world cup alpine ski races. The weather was fantastic, the snow conditions were fast, and the Canadian Alpine Ski Team athletes performed very well. I found the giant slalom race on Saturday particularly entertaining, and John Kucera’s performance down the final pitch entering the finish arena was very impressive. Our Canadian ski team is looking strong going into the 2010 Winter Olympics.
That weekend, I also enjoyed doing some work for my friend and former teammate, Dana Williams. His company, Best of Both (www.bestofboth.ca), brings former World Cup ski racers together with ski enthusiasts of all kind. I enjoyed sharing some of my old ski racing stories and offering some helpful ski-tips to a great group of people from San Francisco. Thanks to Dana and Tim for a great experience!
