So, I decided that summer here in Colorado
is just a little too long, I headed out of breck and watched the sunset in LA on my way to New
18 hours later Ella met me at the
Queenstown airport, and we went back to her pad and watched the snow fall…
I got real lucky and showed up for the best part of NZ’s season, the day after I arrived
the sun came out and it was off to Snow Park NZ.
Nothing quite like shredding a perfect park in the middle of
August with your favorite homies! Thanks X! you rule!
Also got to get on some new ski’s this trip! The K2 Disorderly. So much fun and just in time for the NZ Freeski Open
serious snow cat issues SP put together a wicked course. It started with a stair set, into a butterbox or an up box, then a double line and two more
rails to choose from.
The weather was great and the comp was really fun, except of
course for Ella scaring everyone when she took the first jump HUGE and gave herself a bit of a concussion.
With Ella having to rest up her head I headed up to The Remarkables with Amy the next day for the Remarkable
Rampage, an invitational Slopesyle. Thanks Ella for hookin
The Remarks has one of the best views in NZ for sure! And a
totally underrated park, check out this feature in the newly built Stash park:
This comp was awesome, the jumps were perfect and the Parklife guys really kept the park pristine
Amy and I
swept the podium and the kicked it with the Kia
has more to offer than just sweet snow.
It is by far one the the most beautiful places
in the world. Imagine driving over this
bridge to hit the slopes every day:
also lots of sweet animals every where. Mostly sheep.
even on the TP
course, we got a little party on too, with REALLY expensive booze!
then it was back to SPNZ for a little more skiin before heading home
Catchin some extra Z’s waiting for
a ride up the hill
found me lying there and got up for another beautiful day! (you
don’t always make it when your hitching!)
All and all it was a great trip! Thanks to everyone who made it happen,
especially Ella and X!! Good to get back
to Kiwi land and of course to ski peak season in the middle of the summer!
