The 22-year-old who made her Olympic debut at Sochi begins a busy final month of training and competing on Tuesday when she lines up in Austria.
"It was nice to have some days off around Christmas to recover and recharge before starting training again just before the new year," Small said.
"Although it's been non-stop snowing in Europe, meaning a lot of powder and not good conditions for training, I'm feeling good and happy to get at least some training in before the racing starts again."
Small will begin her campaign in Innerkrems in the European Cup where she will line up in two Super G events and an Alpine Combined race.
From there Small will get her last chance to take on the world's leading skiers prior to PyeongChang when she hits the World Cup circuit.
"I will be racing the speed events (Downhill and Super G) at World Cup events in Cortina, Lenzerheide and Garmisch.
"I'm feeling strong and ready to put down some solid fast skiing."
The Innerkrems European Cup starts on Tuesday evening AEDT and runs through to Thursday.
