I successfully made it north after the final Devil’s Glen FIS races and woke up slope side in the Pizza Pizza RV to blue skies and bright sun!

Slalom was the name of the game today with a bullet proof track that almost felt like an injected slope but athletes punched through especially in the second run which saw some amazing skiing by many. The action on the hill was matched by the seasoned ski parent/coach/fans and the Pizza Pizza Patio set up at the bottom of the course. This area served as a quick pit stop to sit down, stretch the legs, and take in the view.

The bar has been set and this road trip crew can’t wait to see what’s in store for DAY 5 with the final Dual Slalom races of this series. I will be announcing these races while the rest of our crew man the Pizza Pizza RV Patio.
