After New Zealand I went back to Burlington for two weeks then it was off again back to Switzerland. We had a great two week long camp in Saas-Fee. Despite getting altitude sickness for the first time in my life and some bad weather days it was an excellent camp! After Saas-Fee we headed home for the final three weak break before the season began.

The next day my good friend Ben drove me to Montreal and dropped me off. My route to Europe this time took me through Toronto. A much safer route! In the Toronto lounge I had a most amazing act of kindness! I happened to also lose my credit card while I was in the Newark airport. While in the Toronto lounge I happened upon a sale online on a pair of boots I have been looking at since the summer. Jokingly (well kind of jokingly) I called my brother to beg him to buy them for me since I had no credit card to pay for them. A lady sitting near me heard this conversation. She bought my boots for me! I am still amazed at this. She didnt even want me to pay her back! Never has someone offered to purchase an item for me out of the blue! I will definitely be sending her a very kind and thankful gift when I get back as well as a cheque for the boots! I will also never forget her kindness! I am super excited to get my boots!
So after this exciting trip I landed safe and sound in Europe and proceeded via train to Solden. We did two days of soft snow training and relocated to Reiteralm where we had another two days of great training. I am now in Helsinki about to board my flight up to Levi! I am very excited to race this Saturday in the first World Cup slalom of the year!
