Jay Panther Wins in Mt. Gabriel

Hello everyone,

It feels good to write with great news...I won the Mt. Gabriel Nor Am!  It is nice to have a win under my belt going into the half way point in the season.  This also puts me in a solid position for the Grand Prix.

The weekend was really very crazy.  The weather dropped down to -40 degrees over the weekend.  The cleaning lady took my cell phone the first day we were there.  Please send me an email back with your phone number because all of my contacts are gone.  There were over 35 
World Cup skiers at the Nor Am.  A lot of the coaches were saying that was the toughest contest they have seen in years.  I skied really well all weekend.  I qualified 15th and then skied my finals run over two and a half seconds faster than anybody else skied it all weekend!  I have posted the winning run on YouTube.  The link is below:


Coming back to the U.S. on Monday one of our 
rental cars broke down.  I ended up driving 11 people in a van with 7 seats and all of our gear across the boarder.  The fact that we got through is a miracle.  Then we showed up for our flights 20 minutes before the plane took off and still managed to get on!  It is really nice to be back in Park City but I leave again soon.  We are actually driving to Sun Valley, ID today and then I go to Copper, CO on Monday for the Skier Cross Nor Am!  I will keep you all up to date.  Thank all for your support!  Team Panther finally has a win!!!!
