Sandy here, just got back from a little trip out west to BC and thought I'd let you know what happened.
So first off went out to Whistler for a couple days and got super lucky. Skied some sick pow before heading off to Cypress for the double header Canadian halfpipe series. Super fun pipe, future Olympic pipe for 2010 so that was pretty sick.

I ended up coming 1st the first day and 3rd the second day so I was pretty stoked on that.

Then we drove to Silver Star for the Canadian Junior Nationals. Silver Star has a pretty sick Air site, and it is definitely one of my favorite jumps to hit.

Conveniently while I was in Silver Star they were having the last stop of the 1516 rail jam series. It was a really sick setup right in the village with a bunch of spectators.

Had a really fun night and claimed that first place spot.

The next day was the big air comp. Ended up missing the podium by a couple points placing 4th but still had a super fun time and a dope trip. After that I headed back to Ontario for the TELUS Triple Challenge at Blue Mountain to slay homecourt.
I also just uploaded a video of my first run in finals at the Canadian halfpipe series. Here's the link: http://vimeo.com/3550655. Check it out!
