I arrived in Tignes on Wednesday October 19th to train with SPSRC – It’s been great to get back on snow! I trained 5 days of slalom in fairly sunny conditions followed by a further 5 days of GS separated by a bad weather day on the 25th. I'm currently staying at The Hotel Vanoise, the managers are great and one of them plays his guitar and sings for us! During these ten days I also had my boots worked on by Jules Mills who has twenty years experience, six of these on the World Cup. I now have much more comfort and greater precision, with my bone-spurs no longer rubbing and further canting.
