What was the best moment in your season?
I landed my first cliff back flip and freaked out. What about you?
apart from a few cliffs i didn't really get much new done in the pow this year unfortunately. kind of a shitty snow year, so i skied more park then usual. probably most stoked on 9s in the pipe. wasn't really sure if id ever learn those.
Collided with some kid and hurt my ankle.
Doing a few 3's on the 70' jump, so simple and effortless.
When I landed my first dub.
I moved from the midwest to Utah. I got a lot more comfortable on cliffs. Having only skied in the mountains a few times before this season, at the beginning of the winter I was hesitant even on 3 meter drops. Now I can huck cliffs twice that size like they're nothing and stomp them every time. I improved a lot in general, not just on cliffs, now that I've skied in the mountains twice as many days in my life as I had 5 months ago. And of course I had the best pow days of my life. I hucked a huge cliff last week and crashed it, but I'm going to try again next pow day.
at the start of the 2012-2013 season, my friends who were two years older than me and who were the people i skied with 90% of the time moved to lake tahoe for the winter while i was still stuck in high school for another two years. i hadn't skied with them at my home mountain since then until the end of this past season. our mountain was scheduled to close march 23rd but ended up hanging on for one more weekend. they were home for the summer by that time and we got to have a day shredding the local mountain like we used to a couple years ago. laughing our way down the mountain, goofing around, doing stupid shit and crackin ourselves up - just how we used to.
man it was the best. love those dudes.
when i landed hand drag cork 3s and switch rode 5s
I set a rail up on chads gap. Ski patrol blew up all the cameras recording it.
learned to ski switch through gates
The one where I skied. That was nice
did a backflip, claimed the shit out of it, never doing it again
