There comes a time in everyone's career when you have to make a change, whether it be team, training program, race program or equipment. One of the main reasons I went to Mammoth in California in May was for ski testing. I have always skied with Atomic and my coaches and I decided that it would be good for me to try some different brands to see if it changed anything in my skiing. After testing various brands the one that really stood out for me was Voelkl skis and Dalbello boots. The skis were very different to Atomic, they were softer and felt much easier to turn which meant I could take a straighter line and most importantly, I was faster with Voelkl on my feet.
I want to say a massive thank you to Atomic in Austria and in the UK for all their support over my whole career. Without the support of Atomic I am sure I would no longer be skiing and I will always be grateful that they allowed me to reach my current level in skiing.
I am now really excited to be moving forward with Voelkl and Dalbello for the next season!
2 weeks until I'm back on snow in New Zealand!
