A not so good day...

Well not all days can be good ones. We have been spending a bunch of time in the Whistler backcountry these days with the unfortunate issue of having to heli lift not one but two sleds out of the Backcountry these a problems people dont really see in the final result of our films.

A good day...

Never been more stoked to see the Fedex truck!

Congrats to Vera Janssen on winning the Queen of the Hill in Alaska

For the first time in ten years, the King Of The Hill big mountain freestyle contest returned from it's absence to crown a new king and queen. As if he had been training for this very moment in the ten year hiatus of the contest, it was no surprise that Travis Rice raised the sword that proclaimed him the new King Of The Hill. Vera Jannsen stood alongside him, raising a blade of her own as Queen of the Hill. Rob Kingwell, an already established halfpipe-turned-big mountain rider, came in second, and speaking to his incredible versatility as a rider, coming off an Olympic halfpipe bronze medal, Scotty Lago got third.

Congrats to Jesmond D on winning the Showcase Showdown

tailgate ALASKA and king of the hill

we're in ALASKA !!!

After the craziest drive ever (4 days of running into EVERY problem you could think of!), Dave Short, Hock, Josh and I finally made it to the Thompson Pass Parking lot that will be our home for the next two weeks. We are RV-camping and shredding with legends Nick Perata, Julie Zell, Mike Basich, Shawn Farmer, and contemporary heros like Travis Rice, Landvik, and Dave Short :)
yesterday was the King Of The Hill, which i successfully completed even though my right knee is pet-dinosaur-purple and the size of a fat chick.
might have had a little sledding incident, going a bit too fast down these.... was almost gonna say "hills" but i guess i learned the hard way that they are huge MOUNTAINS.
practicing patience right now...

follow my crew's blogs on and

there will be constant updates as well as some cool videos uploaded straight from Thompson Pass !!!
