Freeskiing camp day 1. Skied with Jessica Sobolowski in the morning and Lel Tone in the afternoon.

Started off with 2 laps off K2 through the Enchanted Forest, then headed over for 2 laps of Headwall -> Cornice 2. Finished off the morning with a super fun, more relaxed run through the trees on Tom's Tumble. Jess's big thing was getting us to ski in the fall line vs. traversing back and forth across it. Worked on making smaller, quicker turns and keeping our keeping our hands fowrard.

Lel didn't do much actual coaching but was an awesome guide and really fun to ski with -- really stoked, really enthusiastic. We headed over to Granite via an especially rocky High T and skied a bunch on that side of the mountain.
