www.triplechallenge.caIf none of you have ever had the pleasure, I highly recommend heading to Blue Mountain for the Triple challenge. There's just something about the vibe at this contest that makes it better than any others I have been to. There's halfpipe and slopestyle that are open to everyone. The vibe is great, the competitors always cheering each other on, and general good times all around. Friday and Saturday night are the Invitational Rail Jam and Big air contests. This year, it's going to be big air into an option between two huge new rails. It's going to be a show not to miss. NoPoles will be joining me (Mr.Bishop) in town on Thursday, and once again setting up the live-feed NSTV broadcast of the conest. We've got the kinks worked out this time, and hopefully if all goes well, everyone will be able to join in and watch! Stay tuned for more information as the day gets a little closer. I'll try to post some pictures of the build as its' happening, so you get a preview of what is to come!

"You'd expect the freeskiing community to celebrate the kid, and while big parts of it did, I also saw a tsunami of negative reactions from armchair skiers, saying how his triple didn't have enough style."
