After hopping continents, the team has finally settled in and commenced a successful training camp under the guidance of AIS Aerial Skiing Head Coach Cord Spero. The training conditions have been ideal. The jump site has plenty of snow and the weather has been great, allowing for solid early season training. Laura Peel and Samantha Wells are now comfortably off the double. Danielle Scott has returned swiftly from her knee injury and Renee McElduff is looking to launch her first doubles on snow.
The girls are looking forward to a visit from Barbara Meyer (team Sport Psychologist) next week to assist in the preparations for NorAm and World Cup performances scheduled to begin in North America after Christmas.
Meanwhile, Olympic Gold medallist Lydia Lassila is returning to training aerials this season after taking time out last year to start a family. She will commence jumping over the coming days with 7-month old son Kai there to cheer her on!
