    Encouraging signs for skier Alice Robinson in her first concentrated taste of downhill skiing

    Encouraging signs for skier Alice Robinson in her first concentrated taste of downhill skiing


    The 19 year old has completed a training block at Copper Mountain Colorado ahead of this weekend's second World Cup Giant Slalom of the season in Vermont.

    She spent much of the time on Downhill and Super G skis before switching to giant slalom in the last few days.

    Co Coach Chris Knight says Robinson showed she can really turn and make a lot of speed in certain places with the best in the world.
