Casey Lucas from the Freeride Team took some time to share her amazing experience in Chamonix competing on the 2nd stop of the Swatch Freeride World Tour!
This past week I competed in the second stop of the FWT13 in Chamonix, France. I can’t explain how amazing this place is, so please make an effort to get here and experience Cham for yourself. I hope the pics can give you a pretty clear vision.
The flight was long and getting used to the time change has been challenging. I have not slept much the entire trip due to severe jet lag. It’s nothing fresh air in the Alps can’t remedy:) I arrived on the 24th of January with my sister Kristen who has joined me on this journey. We met up with the other athletes at Hotel Alpina, where we stayed during the event. It’s always exciting to hang with the competition family. Our relationships really grow into a family environment. Friends looking out for each other, eating together, dealing with the stress of competition together. It’s hard enough to be away from home for long periods of time, but if your in great company, it’s easier not to get home sick. We are sharing moments that we’ll never forget.
