Getting out of the La-Z-Boy for a dinner out in Calgary, big step! 😊

The Lake Louise Amphitheater decided to show itself 🇨🇦🙌🏻 Off to surgery for me on Tuesday, new challenges ahead 🤕

Unfortunately, the MRI tests today showed more bad news than we thought...My knee had no swelling, passed the initial ligament tests, but i knew deep down something felt wrong. My right ACL is torn, which as you know means season ending. I intend to work very hard on rehabbing both my knee and the shoulder repairs and come back full force on the World Cup tour. Of course, it means the Olympics is out of the question for me, but I’m okay with that, those are the risks in my sport and I know them very well. This week, doing speed races in Lake Louise showed me I made the right decision to decide on doing more speed events, it’s my path now! So now onto surgery time, wish me luck, I’ll try to knock them both off at once 😬🤪 📷 @kellyvski

I surprised myself today...unfortunately the first surprise was ending up in the nets near the finish...that was definitely unplanned. Ended up pretty banged up from this crash, dislocated shoulder (again...), hyperextended knee ( but nothing torn, **to be extra confirmed after further tests tomorrow..), contusion on the left hamstring, scratched up face, cut on the wrist with a few sutures. BUT nothing too major that would mean season ending. I will be doing some temporary rehab in the meantime. Second surprise, before the tumble, I was actually pretty damn fast, which is definitely a first for me in downhill. I am looking forward to be back, hope it won’t be too long. 📷 @agencezoom

The sun came out in Lake Louise today, but the training was unfortunately cancelled...a couple of gates were bally, sugary, so they decided to get the track perfect for tomorrow instead of risking it. Thanks to all the hard working volunteers here ✌🏻🇨🇦

Killington, it was a pleasure to be a part of the show! The perfect hill conditions, the amazing crowd and the home feel🙌🏻 My performance though wasn’t the best, but having my friends and family there made it so special! See you next year hopefully!

The #goonsquad is taking on the Killington World Cup weekend tomorrow, watch for all of us crazy ladies, hopefully looking slightly less like @jerryoftheday and more like @arcemonwars I’ll be starting bib 19!💫 Also, for those of you who couldn’t make it here to watch, @cbc.sports is broadcasting live online at www.cbcsports.ca Run 1 @ 10am ET, Run 2 @ 1 pm ET. AND even better, it’s showing the race on TV (CBC TV live) Run 2 @1pm ET. @canadianalpinewomen @alpinecanada

Did you see the crazy Black Friday deal from @alpinestrength ski programs! Now there should be no more excuses to find your best fitness before/ or even during the winter. Go on www.alpinestrength.com for more info! ( link in bio)

Redneck brunch with my girls in Killington, Vermont ✌🏻

Great training/occasional racing here in Colorado with the Canadian Women’s team, thanks to all the staff for a great prep season overall, we are ready for the 2017-2018 season, let’ssssss go! Somehow managed to take home the victory today at the NorAm GS, full charge with many mistakes in the second made for an interesting wild show 🤨 #goonsquad @canadianalpinewomen

This fall, I started a ski fitness website called Alpine Strength. It has been so fun making videos, brainstorming with Alejo for programs, getting artsy with Anna and now everything is completely ready ✌🏻If you’re just starting to think about skiing now, it’s not too late to get a recreational program, the programs are designed to be done at just about anytime. 6 weeks and boom you’re so fit, you can’t believe it!;) Lastly, but MOST IMPORTANTLY, we will be conducting a fitness weekly challenge on our @alpinestrength page, give us a follow and see where you stand physically against World Cup athletes. Here is the first challenge, if you can’t do a muscle up (like most people), this is a great way to learn and get strong. Can you do it? 😊 #skifitness #alpinestrength #getfitwithmitch
