Wow, November 22nd is here already! Thanksgiving is tomorrow and the team has arrived safe and sound in Craftsbury, VT for our training camp. It's the time of year when giving thanks is high on the list for many and we are thankful for such a great venue to train at, the 12 brand new Nokian Hakkapeliitta studded snow tires that got us here and the four+ hours of skiing we got in today, but most of all we're thankful for the opportunity to train and spend time with such an amazing group of individuals. My phone apparently only works when it's above 40 degrees, so instead of having no posts while waiting for a post from someone with a functioning camera I've decided to post a series of pictures from this fall that I do have on my phone (in no particular order). We have 17 incredible EPH skiers at this camp, so each picture will have a 17 word subtitle (don't audit too closely). That's it...Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!! - Coach Jay
