Conditions, Jamaican Ski Team, On the Mountain

Just days before his Olympic competition…

0 Comments 16 February 2010

After carrying the Jamaican flag into the Opening Ceremony in Vancouver last Friday night, Olympian Errol Kerr returned to Tahoe for extra days of practice at Alpine Meadows.

He said that the recent sunny days here in Tahoe produced a soft snow surface, similar to the snow that Olympians in early competition have been experiencing, making this practice time very valuable. Also, a chance to spend some quiet time away from all the pre-competition excitement is beneficial.

Errol and his lifelong friends and training partners, Scott and Trevor, tore it up in the ski cross training course Monday, let off some pre-race steam, and chatted it up with hundreds of future Olympians. It’s all part of Errol’s style – he’s as kind and open-hearted as he is committed to his sport.

Tune in Sunday, February 21 to check out Errol Kerr’s Olympic debut. Best of wishes to you Errol! Soak in every minute of it – you’re the best!
