Just like that summer 2015 is over. Snow has graced the ground of the Bow Valley and with change it gives me cause to reflect on my fantastic season of training and cool adventures in the Rocky Mountain sun.
Nestled in the countryside of Kananaskis lies Chateau Sandua; a rustic and quaint cottage right on the beaches of Lower Kananskis Lake. This was the team's home for a two week camp. Feeling far away from modern civilization allowed the team great focus on our training and recovery and to enjoy cottage life - it felt a bit like holidays.
This was mid August and we were teased with signs of winter and the potential for a summer ski on snow.

Park City, Utah has become a favourite destination for me. With training always on my mind this has got to one of the coolest and best spots. This was my second excursion to PC and my return solidified that the desert is no one hit wonder.
Summer temperatures mixed with fall colour, the altitude here is ideal, quiet valley roads to roller ski and plenty of authentic Mexican food to refuel.
Snow is here and its here to stay. Smiles all around, how can you not.
