The following day, I went home to Aspen where, along with myself, fellow U.S. Ski Team members Noah Hoffman, Simi Hamilton had a fundraiser. The turnout for the fundraiser was amazing. Family and friends came and it seemed as if the whole town came out to support us. The fundraiser mainly consisted of meet and greet, silent auction, a short ski movie Simi put together, and a Q&A. We raised over $20,000, and all of the money will go to help offset each of our travel and equipment expenses for the upcoming season.
I am now back in Park City getting ready for winter! Last week the Utah Olympic Park hill crew worked their butts off and were able to get the K90 ready for winter jumping. Because of their amazing work, we were the first team in the world to take winter jumps! We have had several jump sessions so far and it feels good to be back on snow. I will be in Park City now until the beginning of December where I will go to Steamboat Springs for the Winter Start competitions.
Bring on the snow!!!
