Extreme Slackline

The weather has been holding up amazingly her in Zermatt... I am skiing lots and enjoying every minute of it. I started skiing GS a few days ago. It is nice to be back in gates!!! 

Yesterday after skiing we had a great  time doing slackline. At the beginning it was kind a hard, but we improved along the session.

Hans was actually pretty good at it!! 

 Mattias kicking ass...

 I am showing them how it is done :-)

I am adding this video that you should check out... It is unreal what is possible on the slackline... These kids are great!!!

Hans, Mattias and my self just passed out on the couch a few minutes after we came home. So tomorrow we have a day off to reenergize and come back for a few more good days on snow.

Team TBS in Zermatt...

I am back blogging!!!
After a great summer, that I spent mostly in Montreal and Mont Tremblant I came to Europe about a week ago. 
Now I am in Zermatt ( Switzerland ) for ski training. We are really lucky to be able to stay at a apartment of a future TBS star. Because of that once again we have the best set up throughout the history of ski racing.

I am really happy to be back here. I did not ski for quite some time, so it is great to be on snow again. The conditions on the glacier are really good, hard snow and blue sky are just the right thing for Team TBS ( team blue sky ).

The coaches Heli Krug and Lois Prenn are really great and make sure that we have the best training space.

 5 am from the balcony of our amazing condo...
The town of Zermatt and the Matterhorn in the background. 
If you look closely you can see on the ridge ( closest to us ) some small lights, which are people on the way to the peak... 

Fun is important... From the right, Alex Koell, me as the champion, Hans Olsson and Andy Romar.

Amazing conditions on the glacier, and the Matterhorn in the background. 

Today we were not able to go skiing because lightning struck the gondola station on the glacier last night, so we hit the gym in the morning.
After that we picked up super ski star Maria Pietilae Holmner, girlfriend of Hans Olsson... She came for the day to hang out for Hanses birthday ... Bay the way, HAPPY BIRTHDAY HANS!!!
We all watched a movie together and enjoyed a bunch of candy... 

 View from the couch this morning!! 

Working hard in the gym... 

Our physio Oscar ripping it up!! Keep it up man....

Maria giving Hans his birthday gift!!! Lucky you Hans...

Mattias and me chilling... Thanks again to you and your family for the great hospitality. 

Tomorrow we are back on GS program. The weather forecast for the next few days looks great. So lets rock...
All the best and talk to you soon.
