Back in the gym after some days of physical testing, medical checks and all. Here we go dryland season!😌 📷 @candacecrawford

I ❤️my mom! She’s my lucky penny! Merci d’avoir partagé ton incroyable énergie avec tous tes enfants, on est chanceux de t’avoir!

Skied one last SG session this morning in @mammothmountain then straight to Tahoe for some beach time. What a dream to drive a few hours from ski camp and be “home”! What a camp that was!! I’m so honoured to have collaborated with the whole @usskiteam crew and have the pleasure to train with literally the best skier in the world @mikaelashiffrin 😊 ! Thanks for the inspiration and tips girl👊🏻

Revisiting some of my April memories with a filled heart!! We just kept getting the goods without even planning to, I guess it was just because we were so damn in tuned with the universe 💚💙🏔

Well deserved recovery time in the natural hot springs after some pretty darn intense (and amazingly fun) downhill days. 🙌🏻💙 📷 @breezyjohnsonski

Commuting to town for mid day pizza, gotta earn it I guess! Soon, I’m back on the race boards and I can’t wait, but I gotta say this little staycation was just what I needed. P.s. for the girls, yes this is a paddle boarding outfit, and yes it’s perfect!! #thesweatlife #cheesesweats @lululemon

Skiing in the morning, sun tanning at the beach in the afternoon, hello California spring! ☀️

Vacation times means< ~~backcountry time~~>🏔 ❄️ We just can’t stop skiing I guess, anyone else has that problem?

Turning 30 seems like the most natural and easy thing to do now after spending the week with this amazing, spirited and hilarious group of girls (**and Travis!!🤣) My heart is so full of joy, I truly feel complete through these wonderful friendships! Cheers to all of you who made this week so eternally special! ❤️

Slalom camp with coach @anna_goody in @squawalpine the last days!! I’m making a comeback now that Combined races remain an event👊🏻 I forgot how fun slalom can be 😊❤️⛷

La vie simple dans les refuges avec mon chéri, quel plaisir après une longue saison sur la route! Merci @montedouard !!

On explore le “backcountry” au Québec. Sur l’horaire Mont-Valin et Mont-Édouard ❤️ Suivez mes aventures bientôt sur le compte @obersonboutique

First win of the season, last race of the season. It’s never too late! Merci au @montedouard pour leur accueil chaleureux et une superbe piste de course.

World Cup season 2018-2019 has come to an end. I gotta say I’m pretty happy it’s over for now because I can’t wait to get more time training on snow, and fix what’s missing. Physically and mentally, I feel surprisingly fresh, but my skiing was just off at the end of the season. Sometimes, it’s really something so minimal that needs fixing and it can make a world of difference on paper. Some positive out of the season; I still managed to qualify for finals in 2 disciplines. I still qualified for A team for Canada. I am learning more than ever the intricacies of equipment set up and my own personal preferences. I actually had a blast travelling around with the team, taking time off in really cool places 🔝🔝. I finally found again that feeling I was looking for all season in Downhill, the feeling that is ever so addicting and makes you wanna push the boundaries of what’s possible and fast. I had THE best powder skiing of MY life in Russia! @valeriegrenier and I became travelling sisters with matching outfits and we had MANY MANY dance parties. I spent more time than ever with my buddy @federicabrignone 🔝🔝. My team is a joy to be around, the girls also all qualified for A team with everyone posting (or matching) a career best performance this season. I got to explore more of my spiritual side with @theunicornphysio . Meditation, yoga nidra, tarot cards, self care, confidence work and much more. My body feels great despite the injuries from last season. OK, so you get the point? This list can go on forever, because I CHOOSE to see the positive in every aspect of my life. First, I’m headed to Canadian National Champs in Mont-Édouard, Québec and THEN, I get to relax a little and “regroup” as my coaches really like to say!! Thanks for the support by all my amazing sponsors ; @rossignolracing @lange_boots #novasteel @Audi canada @girosnow @lululemon @leki.ski.outdoor #RADgroup !!

Last race of the World Cup season tomorrow 👊🏻 #GS #bib17 🇨🇦 I just love racing here in Andorra, the snow and weather are absolutely perfect as always! So excited to see all those legends throwing it down one last time tomorrow, it’s a big retirement year for our tour. Much ❤️! 📷 @agencezoom #anotherbestday

A perfect little pit stop in Barcelona before heading up to the mountains of Andorra. World Cup Finals, here we come! Being from North America, when there is a 4 day break on the tour, it’s just not enough days or worth the energy to fly back home. Unlucky some might say, but I see it as an opportunity to discover new places and culture. Barcelona is such a wonderful city, it was summer warm and I could enjoy a mix of city venturing, some good quality training and some awesome beach/bike adventure.

Nap....or.....This 🔝🔝 ? 🤩🤔 We are having bad weather to get a speed series going here in Sochi, but there is always an upside to every story. I went up the chair with some Russian skiers today and they asked me to rate the mountain on a scale of 1-10. I give it a serious 9.5, this place is insane! Now, fingers crossed for the next two days of SG racing.

Trading sunny, spring like Crans Montana☀️ for this insane blower powder skiing in Sochi 🇷🇺 Life as a ski racer can be pretty sweet! On another note, I hope we get a chance to ski the hill this week, it is such a great venue. Thanks @aliweather_ @federicabrignone @theunicornphysio @davidebrignone for the fun day out today, now that was some soul skiing ❤️🤗
