Sometimes there is more to life than just skiing. Just scored AC/DC tickets for the Edmonton show this summer.

Me + stage side tickets + AC/DC + 60,000 other screaming concert goers = guaranteed good times!

The stoke is running high!

Day 4 update

I'm sitting in the Vancouver airport waiting for my flight back to Edmonton and reflecting on the past four days. They've been a whirlwind of testing, learning, and fun. Overall, we didn't reinvent Madeleine's fleet and mostly just confirmed our theoretical ideas and previous findings.

FakeFasterSkier (profile) once noted that, "Zach Caldwell is basically ski Jesus." It's not an exaggeration.

Day 3 update

Structure rule #1 - do no harm. In other words, you need to be convinced that your hand structure modification is going to make the situation better, and not worse.



It's +0.8 degrees and pouring rain. Just your standard easy grip day here at the venue.

Day 2 update

Do you have a pair of skis that you know should be good but just doesn't perform? Maybe the bindings are in the wrong spot.

Day 1 update

It has become evident to me that I'm reasonably good at picking race skis. However, the mind reels at the body of knowledge that I do not yet possess.

Tonight I'm making the trek to Whistler to spend four days working with the master. It feels a little bit like Christmas eve, only significantly more exciting.

This is going to be sweet.
