Vail - Day 10

The final day on-snow has come to a close and the packing has commenced.  Michael and Andy are already 3+ hours into their trek back to VT!  For the final day, we made a move to SL and the athletes seemed to enjoy the change of discipline.  We had four different sections in our lane: an apex SL, a stubby SL, and mix of stubby and full gates, and a full gate section.  It was fun to see them jump right into SL and see some early success.  Fatigue from a long camp seemed to set in a bit earlier today and the track deteriorated a bit quicker than usual.  However, everyone finished on a high note and they all came up for one last free run at Vail to close out the 2012 camp.  I am sure the athletes have mixed feelings about heading home tomorrow, but I know I am ready to get back home and into our regular schedule.  I fully enjoy my time here for our camp, but it is hard to beat our set-up at home!  We are VT bound tomorrow morning and I leave you with a couple of pictures from today as well as one Sandra took yesterday at the World Cup.  I failed to mention that in between runs the "Go-Pro Bomb Squad" parachuted into the finished coral, pretty sweet to watch!

Great shot Sandra!
