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.
