Hey guys, Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Jodi Cooke, and I am a freeskier.
Dont hate me cause I live in Ontario...cause I was born in New Brunswick, and lived there till I was 14.
The irony is...I am now moving back to the maritimes - 11 years later...(you do the math on my age....)
I just graduated with my journalism degree, and have landed myself a placement with ATV news in Halifax. I havent been to the maritimes since I moved when I was but a youngster.
New town, new job, new surroundings....should be a super fun time....
I grew up skiing at Wentworth and Poley, but I won't be skiing there this season as I don't arrive till April 26th.
Message me if you want to show me around...
You can learn more about me in my profile on ns...or on Page 54 of SKIER magazine...winter issue.
Hey, head for Aerobics First on Quinpool Rd in Hali. it's a ski shop, good crew there, only running stuff in the summer though... they sponsor a ski comp at Poley Mountain, I'm the Marketing guy at Poley, hopefully you'll make it to the contests there next season. good luck in halifax
i see that you been a key fixture at Blue for their park...
we need some help here,
like jonny said a shop fr hali had to hook a comp in susssex cause ns hills are out to lunch.
Blue is known all over the east as one of the best park hill, how many members do they have there? how many acres is Blue?
haha. Id LOVE to help encourage the scene and get things moving out there = from a resort perspective, a financial perspective (for the hill) and a freeski community perspective.
I heard that a few of you are getting together to do some brainstorming....let me know...im in!
Please help us and our shitty parks, especially martocks, which after ross finally got up (PRops), gets screwed by martock never opening the 40 footer and then shortening the small hit down to like 5 feet and making the lip flat and making all the rails ride ons. Its retarded. So our jump is tiny and gay, and our rail now suck (especially the fact there all bent and screwed up from martock being so fuckin careless, like a fucking groomer running over the flat down flat and snaping the high flat by pulling it out of the snow w/o really digging it out than doing a shitty job welding it back together. Its total bullshit. And we only had the park for a month. Its gay!
Oh excellent,time for a sexy party!-Stewie Griffin
On a britghter note........the parks and ski areas have great potential to excel in park but lack the understanding of the sport.
Rather then get all depressed about it lets just focus this energy on making them understand and try to improove and plan things over the upcoming summer. Wentworth should be the focus just because it has the terrain, the most freeskiers by far, and a hopefully newly upgraded snowmaking system that will allow proper features to be built.
