So I have been out here in Colorado for 3 weeks now with the British ski and snowboard team and I’m having a blast. So far I’ve been mostly training in the pipe at copper but have recently checked out the pipe in Breckenridge as it’s only just opened after the dew tour. The Dew Tour was awesome to watch, and everyone killed it by throwing down some massive tricks. Also I have been working on slopestyle with Anna Vincenti, to take a bit of a break from pipe; I have been trying unnatural spins and unnatural on rails; it is nice to be getting my rail feet back. I have also competed in my first competition of the season which was the NorAm, North Face Park and Pipe open on the 10th-11th December.
This was so much fun and I was stoked to make the final and to finish in 10th place. I have other comps coming up while I’m out here which is a world cup in Copper and in Utah; so I’ll keep you posted.
We have also been spending a lot of time at Woodward it has been sick for practicing new tricks on the tramps and in the foam pits. I can then take this to my skiing (I have been working on doubles into the foam pit) and just having fun messing around learning stunts on the floor, such as standing back flips.
That’s it from me so far but I’ll keep you posted on the rest of the trip!
