“Let’s do everything on Saturday.”

The way things are going, the entire Olympics will take place next Saturday.  It’ll save on heat packs and hand warmers.

My original plan was to catch one or both slalom runs, hustle back for a few group shots, shoot the Nordic Combined and wrap things up with Women’s Biathlon.

First, they canceled the women’s slalom.  High winds.  The group shots were both quick and awesome.  Then they canceled the women’s biathlon.  High winds.  Only a few hundred meters away,  nordic combined ski jumping and the 10k Gunderson (pursuit) went off without a hitch.  Welcome to Pyeongchang.

The best part of the day?  It’s apparently Korea’s New Year tomorrow and my hosts had a full spread of Korean food waiting for me when I got home.

And that my friends, is the best kind of victory.

The ski jumps here are gorgeous and right in the middle of the Pyeongchang region.

Tools of the trade.
These guys know what they’re doing.
Some group shots were sillier than others.
