First turns for the season

So I've made my first turns for the season here at Thredbo, NSW. I'm in Jindabyne for the week for NSWIS athlete induction.

After a long 7-hour drive from Melbourne solo on Monday, Tuesday was jam packed with a medical screening, physio screening, psychology session, gym session, acrobatics and nutrition class. Yesterday I ventured to Thredbo at 6am for a 7am early morning start on snow. Supertrail has a good cover of snow making, so it's perfect for some big, fast GS turns.

I'm here until Saturday, then back to Melbourne. Looks like I'll be spending a bit of time everywhere this season; Hotham, Thredbo, Perisher, and of course Buller.

Here are a few shots from the NSWIS athlete induction on Thursday night. This is my second year as an NSWIS scholarship holder, as well as VIS and AIS.
