Back on snow in NZ: Katya's Blog

2 July 2013

Katya Crema made her debut at the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games, competing in the new Olympic discipline of ski cross. Crema has since gone on to top 10 performances at the World Championships and World Cup events and hopes to compete at her second Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia in 2014.

BLOG: I've just had my first week back on snow in Cardrona, New Zealand. It's been three months since I had my last ski day, and it feels like forever!

Along with teammate Scott Kneller and Coach Matt, we had 6 solid days of free skiing, technical drills, and park time. We managed to get lucky with the weather too.... 5 out of 6 bluebird days.

It was amazing to be back on snow again. All the hard yards of dryland training in the gym over the past few months is totally worth it when you finally get to click into those skis and send it down the hill. I really do miss skiing between seasons...!

Next I head to Sydney's Northern Beaches for two weeks of intense physical training with coach John Marsden. Then it's back on snow in Perisher, NSW.
