tecnicablizzard It's been super fun the last week following the worlds best skiers around here in Colorado. I hope I was able to show a bit what it's like to be an elite ski racer in their final prep period. The @tecnicablizzard A team will be racing in custom Tecnica Blizzard races suits this season, so if you see a blue blur buzz by, don't be alarmed. It's probably just @bryce_astle getting filthy... Now back to your regular @tecnicablizzard programming. Thanks for the sick suits @pocsports 8h

tecnicablizzard Even at the highest level, down time is the name of the game. Ski racing is so exhausting mentally and physically that a lot of each day becomes straight couch time. N64, bro-ing down, and chasing girls is just much ski racing as going fast. 18h

tecnicablizzard Learning to come back from big hits and wanting to go faster than you were going before is how we grow up. @bryce_astle hit the nets in the fastest part of DH training this morning... U.S. Ski team coach says "Well looks like you can go home and take a good week off." Bryce responds "Naw, think I'll go ski @altaskiarea for a week." I didn't think my man crush could get any bigger but it happened right then. Sigh. 1d

tecnicablizzard Skiing is a funny sport if you really think about it. Sticks of wood strapped to your feet to slide on snow. Naturally as soon as there were 2 pairs of skis, there was ski racing. Our race team gets it. Skiing is fun, racing is fun, pushing yourself to become the best you can is serious. @michelmacedo_ knows when to focus on skiing, and knows when to let the skiing focus on him. #takeyouthere 2d

tecnicablizzard A moment of reflection. Ski racing is, and always will be, you against the world. When I was an aspiring racer, I always thought that If I could just make the ski team then I would have all the help in the world to make my dreams happen. While there is some truth to this, reality is that it's still completely you against the world. While these ski team kids have access to the best training, equipment, coaching, doctors, blah blah…they are still alone on their quest against the clock, and must take it upon themselves to make their dreams come true. When @brycebennett steps into the gate this winter and he hears those beeps, he knows nobody is going to be there for him until he crosses the finish line. 3d

tecnicablizzard @marcuscaston here continuing Instagram takeover day 2. Access to our athletes has been pretty amazing here at copper. I was pretty much able to lay underneath a jump with a fisheye, and get @brycebennett sending directly overhead during Downhill training. Pretty sick to hear and feel the speed these guys are carrying. #varoom #takeyouthere 4d

tecnicablizzard Hey yall @marcuscaston here continuing day one of insta takeover. After morning training the U.S. Ski Team boys hit the equipment rooms to get dialed. It's pretty amazing the amount of time dedicated to tweaking equipment on and off the hill... All to save those hundies! Here @kieffer_c takes his turn in front of boot master @barttuttle. Good luck in the Levi europa cups this week @kieffer_c! #takeyouthere 4d

tecnicablizzard Hey Tec/Bliz fans! My name is @marcuscaston and I am taking over the @tecnicablizzard instagram account this week! I will be documenting my experience here in Colorado following fellow Tecnica/Blizzard athletes as they complete their final prep work for the upcoming season. I want to start with an introduction to a key player in our family, @bryce_astle. Bryce is as “Little Cottonwood Core” as they come, and one of the most talented skiers I have ever seen. You may know him as #shopkid from Mt Hood, where he tuned the Blizzard race fleet in trade for a lift ticket allowing him to train on the glacier all summer. His passion for skiing and hard work has paid off, and he is skiing with the US Ski Team as an invitee. Being an invitee, he gets to train with the ski team but receives none of the perks, while paying his own way. “Being an invitee gives me more motivation as I'm not there quite yet. Just an excuse to work my ass off at what I love to do!” Love ya kid, If anybody is going to do it, it’s you. #takeyouthere 5d

tecnicablizzard Repost from @marcuscaston - Skiing is fun no doubt, but when you get to a high level, skiing can also become dangerous. There is a serious amount of training that needs to be done to give yourself the best opportunities and be safe. I train for powder skiing, but the last week I have been in Colorado watching the worlds best racers prepare for their upcoming season. Tomorrow I will take over the @tecnicablizzard Instagram account for a week, and share what's been my experience hanging out with the worlds best skiers as they buckle down and crush plastic, night skiing, and Mario kart. : @marcolikesit #takeyouthere 5d

tecnicablizzard THANKS MARCUS!! Repost from @marcuscaston The people that make up @tecnicablizzard are the reason the company is so special. I guarantee no other company in the world has a staff roster that can rip as hard as these guys. This picture is not of a Tec/Blizz athlete, this is @dunn802, my team manager. Joe raced ncaa at UNH before getting his masters in organic chemistry and then landing at tec/blizz. Find another chemist that can drag knucks. @tecnicablizzard #takeyouthere 2w
