Vail - Day 9 - Men's World Cup GS

Today we had the chance to see the best male GS skiers in the world compete at Beaver Creek.  We have been going to see the one of the Birds of Prey races each year since bringing our camp to Vail.  Being able to see the highest level of competition for the sport we are all so passionate for is amazing, not to mention being able to cheer on the US Ski Team athletes and see Ted Ligety not just win, but crush the field!  It is inspiring for both the coaches and athletes to see an event like that in person.  We were also able to see many friends from other ski clubs, former MMWA athletes, cheer on former MMWA athlete Robby Kelley in his 2nd World Cup start, and visit with said former athletes mom and former MMSC legendary coach Lindy Kelley!  Not much else to say about today other than it was an incredible experience.

Tomorrow we shift gears and move into SL.  The girls did a great job with their GS progression but I am sure they are all ready to change it up and work on some SL!  One more day of skiing...

Can you find our athletes?
