Greetings from Deer Valley !

This month, Perrine Laffont takes us to Deer Valley, Utah for the World Cup in Women’s Moguls. A legendary stop cherished by the young ski champion. 

« I love coming back to Deer Valley. It’s one of the most beautiful ski resorts in the country; with an amazing atmosphere and incredible slopes. For us, it’s a skiing paradise! The course is very impressive and sometimes even scary as we mentally prepared to compete!

Competition

I usually feel calm before competition, this time was slightly different. It has been 2 months since I last competed, and it felt like a very long time. The enthusiasm from previous races felt far away; we needed to get back on track and find the energy again. It was almost like a new start to the season, and with such a challenging slope here in Deer Valley, it was even harder! Trainings were tough and I must say painful! But we made it, step by step, avoiding stress and panic, and the competition turned out well! (4th victory out of 4 for Perrine in the World Cup season).

Free Time

We don’t have much free time during the competition. Days are very busy with training, warm-ups, video sessions. Our time off is mostly dedicated to recovery. We had one hour to hang out in Salt Lake City.  We have a tradition of eating our favorite cheesecake in Park City. In our younger days we used to eat a lot of this incredible dessert; but now we’re more conscious of our diet!

Healthy food is what I miss the most when I am in the US.  It’s not a cliché to say that American cuisine is often unhealthy. It is always difficult to eat well when we’re on tour, and even more so in the US.

Travel

I try to keep busy while I’m traveling. I usually check my email, but on long flights I like to watch movies. I enjoy a variety of movie genres, anything except violent movies. On my flight to Deer Valley I watched Ocean 8. I also love to read; I’m currently reading La Lionne by Kathrin Scholes. Podcasts and music are another great way to pass the time on long flights!
