Here’s a fun shot of Brooke trying on her mom’s old Comp Podium jacket from her World Cup winning days. She’s still got a ways to go before it fits but she’s certainly climbing hard enough!

Even though it’s been freezing these strong young athletes have managed some impressive sends, more on that soon. Also congrats to Coach Robyn for finishing her project from last year and last trip, the guidebook V12 (now considered maybe V11 with some kneebar beta) The Butterpumper! Nice job Robyn!

Welcome Back Tristin!

ABC is also happy to welcome back Tristin Crane! Tristin had to stop attending ABC as his commute from Colorado Springs wasn’t working with his schedule. Things have changed and Tristin will be back at practice in the New Year. We’re glad to have him back!

Hot Shot Sloane tried so hard at practice last week that she was too tired to climb the stairs at home! That’s the kind of trying hard we like to see–great effort Sloane!
