Swette Secures First Career Nor-Am Giant Slalom Victory in Vail, Colorado

  

FLASH QUOTE: Ford Swette of North Vancouver (BC Ski Team/ACA Prospect Group/Whistler Mountain Ski Club):
“It’s been an interesting week and I’m so happy right now.  Since I didn’t train with the rest of the team in Italy last month, I had something to prove to myself when I got here for the Nor-Am races.  I was nervous that maybe I had fallen behind while everyone else was getting amazing training in Europe.  My confidence has been restored and I now believe that the break was actually a benefit to me and gave me time to focus on what I need to do to be successful.  I feel very strong right now and this win is just another positive step forward. We race slalom tomorrow, which is great because I’ve been enjoying slalom maybe even more than GS."
