Mastering Whistler

A long overdue trip to Whistler just concluded for me. We (4FRNT) were invited to compete in the Orage Masters event this year. We've been participating in this "anti-comp" since day 1 and this year we finally made the finals and ended up 2nd. We scored a 15 day Retallac trip out of it so we're stoked.

While in Whistler and around the Masters comp, I was fortunate to have met up with our Japanese distributors during their epic qwest to Whistler for some spring shred. We met up with some other local friends and teammates and did a nice size hike up to a pretty classic zone in the Blackcomb backcountry called something Japanese ironically.

We seshed a full day in Blackcomb's park a couple days after the comp with COC filmer Leo. The other kids where crushing it, me not so much. Its cool to blame that on my 187cm lengths skis right? Skiing Alta this year has been great but I'm ready for park after that day. Man, Blackcomb has the park gig figured out and it was so much fun to just fly down the mountain off huge jumps with no impact. Peep the video.


Now I'm back in Utah. Warming up the moto season with a new bike I just got for street and dirt. I got a ride planned for late May through the Mendicino state forest to the coast. I'm psyched.

After a week of grey and snow the weather finally broke in Tahoe. We raced out to the jump we have been waiting to hit all week. Snow was great and we all put down some tricks!

Need the split boards to get to these mountains...

Looks fun? It was amazing...

We built a second jump but the snow was baked by the time we hit it...

Miller time...

NOAA is saying more snow this weekend... winter is staying to the bitter end and that puts a smile on my face : )

Taylor and Shane took off to check out some other potential jump spots while we chilled at another jump. Five minutes went by and we got a call over the radio. Taylor put his sled into a creek hole. After some searching we found them and helped dig them out. keep an eye out for them holes... they sneak up on you!

We hit this spot at the end of the day... snow was weird but we still got some stuff

Get those pow turns in... Summer is knocking on the door
