The last time we crossed paths I was heading out to North American Open in Kirkwood CA for stop number four. I ended up taking first in the comp, stoked! Also I hit the storm cycle there, they had over 200 inches in a week and I was there for the last five days of that week. BOOSH. Good times on good snow with good friends. That first place put me in first place overall for the season standing. I had about a two-week break from competition so I stopped in at home for a few days then flew out the Colorado for some soul shredding with Team Summit at A-Basin. After a week I drove over to Snowbird UT for stop number five, the final stop on the JFT. Again a storm cycle was moving in. Seems as though the snow is following me. I ended up falling on a front flip in finals but with my placing at the previous four stops it was enough to keep me in first for the overall! I also won the overall Freemountain Award! Had a very fun season and I can’t wait for next year!
Whitewater’s season has officially came to an end, spring is in the air here in nelson, it’s a love hate time for many of us skiers. I’m personally looking forward to school wrapping up in two weeks, moving to a new area and having much more free time to work on hoodies. Also the fact that Sunshine has a much longer spring season and I may get a few more days on snow! (slightly torn about that however, as I am not a fan of what happened recently to so many of their old management.)
Also possibly going to Sunshine later this spring is Matt MacCallum, and even though his season is still not over he decided to put together a little 2010/2011 edit to enjoy the memories. Now here it is for your enjoyment.[vimeo http://vimeo.com/22201663]
