Last week we arrived in Coronet Peak after a very stressful journey where our bluetooth headphone's decided to break, but thanks to the Yamaha Queenstown staff we were able to buy a new pair just before our first ever race together in the Slalom Audi Quattro Winter Games. We did well both days receiving Bronze and Silver in both our Slalom Races. The course was slick and tight, but we managed to concentrate on our distance, communication and finishing our first couple of races together, the medals came as a great bonus to us. 

After a day off back in Wanaka, we then set off for long trip to Mt Hutt for our Speed Events. Unfortunately these weren't as successful but they were definitely a learning curve for the both of us. We will take our mistakes from the Super Combined, and work on them in the forthcoming month we have in Wanaka. 

We decided to not race the Super G at Mt Hutt due to a change in Jade's eyesight the night before. Since being back in Wanaka, Jade has been working on adjusting to her vision, as well as being determined and working hard in the gym on her balance and core strength. 

Cadrona is giving some beautiful Bluebird days at the moment and we both can't wait to get back to training.

Jade’s introduction to competition skiing came in the Summer of 2007 when she took part in the British Disabled Ski Team’s squad trial at the Manchester Chill Factore. By the end of the weekend she was offered a place on the BDST development squad and then attended one or two training camps every year whilst still at school.
