Whistler

3 weeks ago I went on a training trip to Whistler in Canada (which is one of my all time favorite places to ski) with the rest of the halfpipe team for 2 weeks.

 

It was a lot of fun and as we were training along side the momentum camps the park and the pipe were sick and in top condition. It was a great opportunity for me to try new tricks as well and perfecting the tricks I already have because we were lucky enough to be able to use the pipe airbag. The first week the weather sucked, it was rainy and cloudy and we only got one sunny day, but we still got to ride, and the conditions worked out well for using the airbag. The second week the weather was a lot better, we got a lot of sun and hardly any cloudy days, which was great as we could really focus on training (plus it made for good tanning/swimming sessions by the lake).

By the end of the 2 weeks I was super happy with what I achieved, with learning cork 900’s on the airbag and getting flairs, grabs in my spins and right fives (opposite spin) on the snow.

Now onto New Zealand for a month for the training and a World Cup.
