Look at THIS.

THIS is a start list for our official training in Igls, Austria. There are SEVENTY-SIX people on this start list. Do you know how long it takes 76 people to do three runs? The answer is A LONG FREAKIN' TIME. Like, longer than it took me to do my bangs in grade seven.

Let me tell you something about Igls.

I. HATE. THIS. TRACK. Send me to Altenberg any day of the week, thank you very much.


DEC.10 | The Shining à la Soviet-inspired Saxony

Okay ... so the guys are right ... the place that we are staying at in Altenberg is straight out of a horror film. We had to drive in the dark, through the forests and hills of East Germany, to a tiny little town called Schellerhau, 20 kms from the Czech border, where we finally happened upon our "resort" hotel, the Stephanshohe.


Across the street is a little church, with a graveyard.
