It is dumping snow here in Campo Tures, Italy. If I were powder skiing it would be amazing but this much snow doesn't bode well for racing. And unfortunately the slalom race was cancelled today because of the snow. Yesterday's GS wasn't too flash either. They had to send snow cats up to get rid of the snow that had fallen over night and once they had, the track was in pretty good shape, the fog was the only down side. This particular course had several rollers throughout, the first of these was a tough one to get right because of the way they set the course. I skied that first roller pretty well but didn't ski smart over the next few, the last one I took far too straight, almost skiing into the next panel and had to play catch up the rest I the way down. Needless to say this did not lead to a fast time. But I can learn from these mistakes and work harder in my next race. Speaking of which I have just been told that both the Hippach and Strobl have been cancelled because of a lack of snow. If only Austria was receiving some of this snow dump that Italy is getting. So I'm now on the hunt for some more races before the 20th. Campo Tures was still an interesting experience. I seem to be able to find a castle in almost every town in Europe and this little Italian town was no exception. This particular castle was built in 1659 and although we were unable to go inside it was still an interesting site.
