I've Been On Tour From '94

I'm a 22 year old student and skier. I really love dirt, traveling, and dogs. Here you'll find an area where I discuss my life happenings, and some projects I've worked on- mostly skiing articles. 

West Coast Sessions 10: Downday & Days 1 and 2

West Coast Sessions 10: Downday & Days 1 and 2

West Coast Sessions 10 is underway! Strong winds forced public day to be moved to Friday, and shut down all but one lift. The majority of the skiers took a day to skate around Windells, save for a few that put in work on Gypsy Island. After the weather cleared, and Hood was blessed with lift access, WCS truly began.

Monday offered skier's the first chance to hit the Big Jump- along with the sunset shoot. The morning started with skiers trying to get their daily has#tag challenge done with, and hiking the rail gardens.  Later the #dailyoffer at the Big Jump went down, leading into a killer jump sesh. 

In between jump sessions the boys built jibs  keeping the spirits high. As the weather started to take a turn for the worse, Big Jump got shut down after it was decided to be too risky. The night ended with the most ridiculous moves from Goepper and Manley- skiing down the backside of the takeoff, into the sunset.

Day two started with speed. The daily offer started off being the Spraypaint jumps at 10:00 then quickly moved to being the Big Jump at 11:30. With three hours to lap Stormin Normin before the Daily Offer athletes were lapping the jumps and rails. 

The forecast had called for rain, that came and left quickly in the afternoon. This didn't dampen spirits, and Big Jump went off even harder. Overcast weather made for a fast jump, pushing athletes to send their best and there was even a triple backie early on. Big Jump went until 4:30, offering many grabs for the has#tag challenge.
