Italy to Switzerland  
Monday, March 21, 2011, 11:13 AM

This was the route that we went, normally we would take the highway, but we wanted to take in the beautiful scenery. This drive was about 4 hours.

This was a road in the valley were all you could see around you was mountains (you think this road every closes due to avalanche, ha ha). There were a lot of people that would park and hike up to get fresh powder runs, only thing that was odd was people never really strayed too far from another person's line, almost like they wanted to do all that work for a tracked out run?????

This was an epic view the entire way. There were a lot of switchback turns to climb up the mountain, but that is to be expected.

So today was really mellow. I had time to stroll around Valmalenco, not really anything to do but there are some great building and old churches. Like the one pictured above. This was the church supposedly where the Virgin Mary was sighted by several villagers. So they named the church after her. I felt weird trying to take pictures while I was inside, I didn't think it was right so I just appreciated it with my eyes.
On another note I have decided not to eat at the hotel anymore because they forgot to share some pertinent information with me. Apparently since we have been here we have been recycling our napkins at dinner. Some people would say that is not bad, recycling is a great thing....just listen to this. (I missed the first dinner because I flew in later, and apparently miss the instructional dinner that told you after you were done with your meal you put your cloth napkin into a big envelope and put you name on the outside of it.) After about three days I thought it was weird that I was taking a napkin out of an envelope, I mean that is not a normal thing that you see in the USA. The third day I noticed that my napkin was not very clean, also that it had a cluster of buggers, dried food, mustache marks and other things that I just don't want to say. I made a little scene and asked the waitress what was up. A few people on the team decided to share with us that we were reusing our napkins the whole trip, but since I never designated one for myself, me and a bunch of other teammates were rotating dirty napkins. I travel with guys for 9 months out of the year and I have to put up with some gross and dirty things, this dirty instance was a little my face!

Race Day 
Thursday, March 17, 2011, 02:22 PM

Today was qualifiers in Valmalenco, Italy. The weather was snow/rainy mix, and that made it very difficult for the course workers to clear it off. As a result there was a delay and we did not race until 2:45. That being said, thank you to all the course workers that put in so much work to make our race still go on. Oh and I won time trials today.

I am not going to sugar coat it anymore. Italy is beautiful, but as of late the weather had been really bad. As a result our training was cancelled, we only got to train 30 minutes on course today due to lack of visibility and conditions. The shot above is a picture that was taken right outside my hotel window. Hopefully the weather improves for race day.

On the Road

The weather is not that great in Italy right now. Maybe things will get better, but the forecast is not looking so promising. Well all we can do is hope for the best. Definitely missing the Florida sunshine.

Spring is in the AIR 
Friday, May 7, 2010, 03:56 PM
Well, I am successfully moving out to California for the summer, I am over the top excited about this and have pretty much packed all my things already. Ready for endless surfing, volleyball, tennis and anything else imaginable. I move out there June 1st with a pit stop in Arkansas, with those calculations I should be at my place the evening of the 3rd. Gidgett will be joining me as well. Cali = Sun= Fun.

I arrived in Italy yesterday. Today was my first day of training on the course. Super fun in this area. Bathrooms are a little small but good thing we don't hang out in the rooms a lot. I found out this year that I am missing the US Open. That is a bummer because it is in my own back yard (Stratton). Hopefully all my friends have a good time and kill it in the pipe and the slope course!!!!! I will be back home at the end of March, after stopping at one more place (Spain). Then it is off to CO and maybe AK, that would make my YEAR!!!!

Almost Turkey Time 
Thursday, November 5, 2009, 08:01 AM
So, I have been training non stop and having so much fun with my friends from back home. I also finished my one hundred and one hats that I made for HAT 4 HOUNDS. (A charity that I started in March, where all the money goes to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals <ASPCA>). So I was excited that I made my quota and now I am just focusing on selling them. I only have twenty five more, and my goal is to sell them all off by Christmas.
In my spare time I have been going on long bike rides and playing tennis. I have also been teaching Gidget (my dog) to run with me while I ride my bike, this way I can take her on another fun adventure. HA HA.
Snow is falling out West and that means that it is only a matter of time until I will return to the slopes once again.
Thats all for now,
Lindsey J

End of May 
Tuesday, May 26, 2009, 11:54 PM
So I am in CT for the summer now. I have put the Green Monster (my brother's and my malibu boat) in the lake and had a couple of great weekends outdoors with the friends. Coming up next month is a training camp, a wedding in Costa Rica and then coaching out at Windell's Snowboard Camp. Super excited to go to Costa Rica, and to spend that time with friends...priceless. So until then I will be training at the gym. All for now.

So I have been home in CT for a couple of months and really loving the warm spring weather. Sure on the East Coast we get rain from time to time but when it is sunny it is gorgeous. So my brother and I just put our boat (the green monster) in the the lake three weeks ago and have enjoyed outside adventures with our friends. All I am doing right now is working out at the gym everyday, but next month the real activities start up. I am going to a training camp, then to a wedding in Costa Rica, then a coaching job at Windell's camp in Mt Hood. All for now.

Home for a couple days 
Saturday, February 21, 2009, 05:01 PM
After the race in Stonehem, Quebec I decided to drive down to my parents place to get some home cooked meals and some good rest. I took some runs with my brother and cousin on Saturday at Stratton, then had a great movie session. I plan to drive to Sunday River, Maine for my next competition. It has been an eventful month and I am really happy with the way that I have been riding all of the courses.
