US Open Practice
So this year its set up so that the Slope Style contest is the same day as the first slope style practice. Ouch the course opens at 8AM and the contest begins at 9:15AM so we have an hour and 15 min to figure out speed and get a run down to move on to the next round. OUCH!
Stuck on the East!
The stress of being on the Road. Im back east where most of people in snowboarding call home. Not i though im from MI still a ways away from here. I compete tomorrow morning at the US open and im 2 hours away from the event. finding it hard to believe that im going to make it there in time for my 8AM practice. NO Car No Bus No Train. ehhhhh!
Dew Tour #2
i came back to the good ol east coast for Dew tour stop #2 at Killington VT. Its cold like usual here on the east coast practice was nice and icey i managed to connect my face to the ice on the first day of practice and gave my self a good fat lip and big nose. Didnt hurt at all but sure made me look goofy then the next day on my last practice run i did double back rodeo to my face. Hit my face in the exact same spot. Face doesnt hurt but i managed to mess up the AC joint in my shoulder. Long story short didnt get to do a run.

Ian Thorley and Jeremy Thompson from the Flow international team, road tripped around some of Australia's best snow resorts. This is a four part documentary of their trip.
In this episode the boys travel from Falls Creek to Thredbo for the MTV Snow Jam.
The boys had to get up early after a late night partying, to drive to Thredbo for the comp. They weren’t sure that they would make it in time. The Car was buried under the most snow Australia has seen in a long time. We hadn’t even made it 30 kilometers before we got a flat tire and the boys still hadn’t seen any kangaroos and wombats. With a few stops along the way we made it to Thredbo, with only minutes to spare.
