It was nice to be able to go out and focus on my skiing and what I had to do and know that I was going to have a great pull every single round!” – Nate Smith

My skiing is always so consistent behind the Ski Nautique 200… I tied my PB again this weekend with 2@41 and ran 39 a total of 3 times including the first time ever that 2 women ran it in the finals.
