For the AIS/VIS Aerial team the event marks their first World Cup of the season.
After a solid training camp in Apex, BC, Canada prior to Christmas, the AIS/VIS Aerial Skiing team have just returned from their Christmas-New Year break to resume training in Val Saint Come, a relatively new site in Quebec, Canada.
The lack of snow across the Northern Hemisphere to date this season has meant a couple of last minute destination changes, but has not compromised the quality of training.
The girls have been given the opportunity to jump with different teams this preparation, including the Canadian and Ukrainian National teams.
AIS Aerial Skiing Head Coach, Cord Spero, will be assisted by former Canadian World Champion Steve Omischl during the upcoming North American leg of the World Cup tour.
All girls are jumping well off the double kicker, and are prepared leading into the first World Cup of the season.
This event will mark the World Cup debut of AIS/VIS Scholarship holders Samantha Wells, Danielle Scott and Renee McElduff. Laura Peel completes the four-member squad, and will be commencing her second World Cup season.
AIS/NSWIS Mogul Skiing athletes competing include Britt Cox, Matt Graham and Nicole Parks who will compete in her first World Cup of the season.
