Zermatt is pretty much the go-to-place when we grab our treasure map and start searching for good, stable conditions in the summer. At least it has been the last two seasons. We pretty much moved down here for the entire pre-seasons earlier and it worked out really good. Going here, means it all starts up again. You meet familiar faces, both off and on the hill and you get reminded why you love your life. Cliché…I know, YOLO and all that, but that doesn’t make it less true! You also see some familiar sights, like the Matterhorn and Hotel Firefly. Our hotel is pretty much the most luxurious hotel we stay in during a season, and it has the friendliest staff there is! We become spoiled with our living conditions after we are done here.
Well, you know the part about me saying this is where we come for good,stable conditions in the summer…Weeeeell….after just one day skiing, we are grounded in our hotel while its raining cats and dogs outside. The weather, that has been good the last week, is not the best for the moment. However, we are hoping they let us up tomorrow even if its just to freeski. I’m currently doing a weather dance and praying to every God there is for some OK weather tomorrow.
We are only gonna stay here for about a week before we go home again. This year we are headed to the other side of the globe…New Zealand, to do most of our pre-season training. Looking forward to everything, except the insanely-I-can’t-really-believe-how-long-the-travel-is way to get there.
