Tell A Friend Tour is always one of my favorite events of the year. As the finale of the tour, Andy is always great about rounding up a big crew for the Minnesota stops.

The week started out at Welch Village on Thursday night. From the get-go, the stoke was high and everyone was out there trying new tricks. Whether it be sliding a rail as slow as possible, or getting crazy on a flat box, we skied until the sun went down. Friday we had another afternoon stop at Buck Hill, (yeah, that one place that raised Lindsey Vonn). A heat wave hit that day, and it was the warmest any of the Line Crew remembered it being in Minnesota (ever). Sweatshirt hot laps and two different parks had spirits high.

Saturday we headed out to Trollhaugen in Dresser, Wisconsin. Famous for having some of the best rails in the midwest, we were blessed with sunshine on top of an awesome set-up. I think it's safe to say that 'the Beach was hot'- warm weather, good vibes, and friends from all over Minnesota and Wisconsin brought together led both locals and pros to throw down.

So. many. backflips.

The weekend wrapped up at Spirit Mountain in Duluth, Minnesota- I was forced to go tend to the responsibilities I had been avoiding all week and couldn't make it to this stop, but I heard it was one of the best ones of the week!
