Patiently waiting for the next storm to go play in the backyard. Fresh air during this time does the mind and body good. What have you been doing during this quarantine? Cooking? Shows? Workouts? I wanna hear!

Social distancing one pole length away from each other minimum. We are so lucky to call this our backyard. I hope everyone is doing all that’s necessary to stay safe and contain this virus. Thanks @ming.t.poon for the beautiful shots! 📷

Last travel for the season...headed home like so many. It was indeed an incredibly strange race season. I hope these measures will help us all to fight this pandemic. In the meantime, I will hide in my hood, drink lots of water, wash my hands profusely, avoid touching my mouth, eyes and make it home safely😬

Just so proud of you @federicabrignone 🤯 Holly Overall World Cup winner!!!!! 💣 ❤️AND GS overall too!! I’m actually kind of speechless about this huge huge accomplishment you’ve just achieved. This is the ultimate dream a skier can dream and you’ve done it😱😍 I have so many reasons to be proud of you: I love that you are always up to do anything fun and that you show the world that anyone can have both, success and pleasure. I love that you’ve been there to cheer us (HBC) up when we had tough days this winter amidst all your interviews and busy days. I love that you prioritize ice cream with the girls when racing in your hometown. I love that I have a true friend I can escape with to Milan and just laugh with the whole time. I love that you are the ultimate positive person, no days on skis are bad days! EVER I love that you and Davide are the best Spike Ball partners. I love that we share so many memories together over the years; vacations, races, wins, losses, dance parties, walks, runs, wine, gelato, spike ball games, gym training, social games...etc AND now let’s save one hell of a dance party to celebrate this one, because that was just insane! You rock and enjoy this amazing moment!

You’ll find me at the gym...Not doing chin ups yet, but soon! Hand is healing up well and so are my sore legs! 🤪👊🏻

I’ve always wanted to go to Chamonix. Does it count if I drove through and snapped dozens of pictures from the car? Bucket list check mark ✅?? 🤣😎

✈️ on skis means...time to ✈️ home and take care of my hand. I’m not starting the Combined tomorrow since slalom with a broken hand isn’t optimal. 😬🤪 Next stop, Panorama. 📷 @agencezoom

There is a first for everything...last Sunday, I raced the Combined with a broken hand. Let me tell you, those right footers were not pretty in the slalom, but I fought my way down. I now get to wear “Wonder Woman” cuffs (scroll over)👊🏻 I am doing everything I can to figure out the best set up to race this upcoming weekend in La Thuile. Thanks for the messages!💕 📷 @agencezoom

I’m sad the Downhill World Cup season is over already, but happy I made it into the top 30 of the standings. It’s definitely an improvement from no points last year 😬🤣😈 Combined tomorrow with bib 8 👊🏻 📷 @agencezoom

Feeling ready for the upcoming two weeks of speed races! Bring it on! Also, I’m liking these new contour goggles from @girosnow 😎☀️ 📷 @roniremme

Bon giorno 🇮🇹 Amazing training today in Ultental 🤗

I won’t be starting in tomorrow’s GS in Kranjska Gora. I’m taking this time instead to rest and get some valuable training in. Next will be Crans Montana for me🙌🏻 🇨🇭 📷 @agencezoom

10 years since the Vancouver Olympic Games ✨✨ They were my first Olympics and I will forever hold the fondest memory. I had nothing to compare these Olympics with at the time, but now I realize how special it was competing at the highest stage on home soil. My family all there, cheering from the stands and making me laugh at all their stories during the games. The volunteers were absolutely amazing, and well Canadian!! I was fortunate enough to make the team at the right time with world class funding due to the games being in Canada. It enabled me to achieve my biggest dream of winning a World Cup. Most of all, I shared this unique experience with such a great team: Coaches, teammates, technician, Physio, doctor, staff!

Tech and speed reunited for a few days of training together. It will be nice to have teammates again after the last 3 weeks of solo racing. 🇨🇦 📷 GEPA pictures

Year 12 down memory lane! 💕❤️ We will get engaged when I say so.🤗 🤣
