Slalom Training

This morning I got up early again and headed up the hill to La Hoya Ski Resort. I got a lift with an Esquel local, Frederico. Later in the morning I took some photos of him training for his Slalom competition at Cerro Chapelco this weekend. Good luck Frederico!

He had a set of small gates set up. After I took the photos, he came and had a look at them and found where he was making a mistake, so took off to try and fix it.

I took it pretty easy today. I did a few warm up runs on the pistes and then headed over to Estadio piste to try my hand at some of the fresh snow. Well, couple of days old snow, anyway. I think I am improving at skiing heavy snow. I am a bit more confident as well, which helps a lot. I stopped about 2pm and headed down the hill. I was feeling a bit tired so I thought I might give it away for the day before I hurt myself. It was the first day of spring today and I did not even realise it. But it is definitely getting a lot warmer now. I think there still might be some more snow coming before the end of the season.
