Holiday Bliss

In all the hustle and bustle of the holidays it's easy to be overwhelmed with everything but what's important. That may sound cliche but it is the absolute truth. I am a perfect example of what NOT to do...December 20th rolls around and undoubtedly I get the same sense of anxiety wondering if I've finished my Christmas cards which quickly turn into New Years or even Valentine's Day cards at worst. I rack my brain for ideas wondering if I've found the perfect gift for my not so easy to shop for…See More

What I Wish I Knew

The season is now underway and with the excitement of a new season there is also the risk of injury. No, I'm not being pessimistic or negative but rather realistic. In truth the majority of injuries happen within the first few weeks of ski season. Many doctors and sports medicine institutes have studied the statistics behind this phenomenon. The reason for this is primarily based on the fact that we haven't skied or snowboarded in quite sometime. We are rusty, make silly mistakes and ultimately…See More

When You Don't Like Lemonade

You have probably heard the expression, "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade." I have always appreciated this as it adds a sense of levity and positivity to most situations. I often have thought of this and probably even subconsciously have used it as a sort of a mantra through life's frustrations and difficulties.Recently, after an ongoing rough patch I suddenly realized, I'm sick of lemonade! I would really love a nice cup of soothing tea. Enough of the lemons and lemonade. Maybe you…See More

Training Blocks not Blues

Every fall , it's the same story. We all have the sudden stress of "getting in shape for ski season". One month before ski season, we crank out a few hundred squats and lunges hoping to dissipate the intense lactic acid come our first few runs. Sure, it helps but what if there was a totally different way to approach our ski fitness which would go well beyond our first winter turns? Yes, Here it is.First, look at each month like a block of training. It will give you steps toward continued…See More

Goals Shmoals

Recently I heard a commencement speech from Tim Minchin. Now whether or not you are famliar with Tim or even approve of his humor, he had some incredible insight which has left me thinking.Speaking to his alma mater, Tim wanted to bestow 9 key points to tackling life after college. The entire speech is actually quite fabulous but the first point left me questioning my own logic. He very bluntly started his 9 key points with the audacious comment,  "You don't have to have a dream". Wait, what?…See More

Summer Ideas

Summer is flying by and many of us are trying to enjoy as much of Steamboat as we can.

Time to Get Back, Slowly

In many of my past blog posts I've written about training and conditioning based on my personal experience. This blog post is no different.Recently, I had fairly major surgery on my knee from an injury I incurred last winter. After two months of being unable to much of anything, I am ready to get moving again. Unlike earlier posts where I was writing from the vantage point of being healthy and strong, today I am starting at square one.Something I've always known, but what never ceases to amaze…See More

Looking to Get Summer Fit?

The white blanket of winter is gone and yet some of us might still be hanging on to our proverbial winter layer. Yes, somehow the pounds can add up during those cold winter months when your body is fighting the elements to stay warm. (At least that's my excuse.) Suddenly summer is here and you are wanting to shed those unwanted "warm" layers of extra weight. Don't fret! Changes should be small and incremental but ultimately will have a significant effect. BABY STEPS.The only way to make lasting…See More

Calling all Instagrammers!

It's closing weekend and what better way to bid the 2013-2014 season adieu then entering an Instagram contest?We all love our handy phones and the easy access to taking incredible shots, "selfies" and all. I would like to fancy myself being quite the professional when it comes to snapping shots with my trusty iphone. I know my sister, Isabelle has quite the Instagram following and I am often am amazed at what she captures. Izzdagram…See More

New Spots for Longtime Locals

Like many locals, I've lived here in Steamboat almost 20 years. Interestingly, there are still attractions, places and events that I have yet to experience. Sound familiar?Last week I had the enormous pleasure of enjoying one of these new adventures. Courtesy of  local based company Wellktok, I had my first sleigh-ride dinner to Ragnars. It was fabulous. It was a new view of the slopes, valley and town.Pulled along in a less conventional rendition of "horse-power", we wound our way across…See More

An Olympic Mindset

While watching the Olympics the last two weeks, I continue to be impressed with the athletes that are able to rise to the occasion and perform at their best when the stakes are the highest. The Olympic stage is unique as it is one moment that can alter the perceived success or failure of an athlete.I keep asking myself this simple question, "How are some athletes able to perform even better than their norm while others crumble with the pressure?" It's the clutch moment, which isn't limited to…See More

The Odds Are...

The Olympic Games are right around the corner and Steamboat is no stranger to Olympians and Olympic success. With over 80 Olympians, Steamboat tops anywhere in North American and potentially the world.But, don't let those numbers jade you. I often joke that Olympians are a dime a dozen here in Ski Town USA. Yes, it's true...statistically speaking. 1 in 157 people in Steamboat is an Olympic athlete. But, let me give you some perhaps lesser known facts about becoming an Olympian.First, you may be…See More

Caroline,
I made reservations to ski once again in the women's clinic next week. I have two friends coming in but one is going to be late. I also have a lesson with you and Nelson that I purchased in the humble ranch auction. Please advise... Not sure if I want to do clinic now with not much snow and friends coming in...
