NIGHT RIDER PHOEBE NOVELLO
It was a nice feeling to hit the ground in Austria and not feel like a complete tourist. This is my 4th trip in 3 years and I am starting to feel comfortable with the Frankfurt Airport and Highway A10 out of Salzburg. The girls have spent enough time here to be casual, and they have both become great travelers. We chat with the locals and get our drops in the park without hesitation or uncertainty.
Aside from our evolution, the day of travel just seemed to work out perfect. Shannon McGee helped us get to Boston and things went smooth from there (the girls even got their own rows of seats on the long flight). We arrived to plentiful snow and a private shuttle that whisked us right to our hotel. Austrian hotels have become my favorites and this one is better than most. We unpacked and headed out to the slopes at 4pm for some night riding. After ripping some powder turns on the mountain, Phoebe and I then made our way to the competition park just as the lights were coming on (Biba had double the travel and opted for some down time).
The park looked great, and after I knuckled jump one and overshot jump 3, Phoebe stepped in to show me the speed (the student has become the teacher). By 6:30 she was comfortable with the course and we had enjoyed some of the best night riding I have experienced. Back to the hotel for a 4 course meal and now its time to shut 'er down.
Tomorrow is a free day for us and we have a snow-filled resort 3 times the size of Stratton to explore (9am-9pm).
The Elite Team males have been on our minds and in our conversations. Keep in mind guys that this trip was proposed by Phoebe and Biba, and approved quickly. Let's hear the next proposal guys!
THIS IS THE ONE I OVERSHOT IN THE DARK. PHOEBE NAILS IT.
