Breckenridge Pictures

Since I have come back to Breckenridge the Matthew brothers have been here as well! It has been really good fun skiing with them as it has been an awful long time! Jamie ended up hurting his elbow so he decided to head up the mountain anyway and take some photo's with me!

Nose Grab

It was a really good day and hopefully the three of us can get a small edit out soon for you guys! The past few days have been bad weather so we haven't managed to ski properly but it is meant to clear up soon!




Pat Sharples is back now from the Youth Olympics so there is no slacking! It is really good having him back out as he helps us with all our training and video analysis! Hopefully you will see some progress soon!

Home

So last week I ended up going home for a while to see my family and friends! It was a lot of fun and had a bit of a break from skiing. It was nice to see everyone and my dogs.
After a quick stint at home I was back out to Breckenridge to get back to work....if you could call it work!
Customs was a bit of a pain in the ass as they didn't believe a word I said about anything. They thought I was making everything up, about skiing and not planning on working whilst I was over here. I managed to sneak in!


Paddy and I

So today we got a bit of a surprise visit from none other than Paddy Graham himself! It was really good to ski with him again after so long. It was pretty bad weather so we just ended up skiing the rails all day really!
It was a really good day! Maybe a bit of footage to come soon!

Snow!

Some snow has finally arrived! It was starting to become a worry as it was very bare up the mountain! It is still no where near Europe! Apparently a lot of lifts in resorts are closed because it is very dangerous! That is not the case here!

Since the snow came in a oner the pipe was rubbish today. All me and Rob Taylor managed to do was on hitters on each wall. We skied a track into the wall of the half pipe so that we could at least practise a bit!
Here is a short clip of one of my first airs!

Woodward/Breckenridge

Since the weather has taken a turn for the best we are all making the most out of it and riding Breckenridge as much as we can. I have mainly been riding the pipe where as people like Josh Birch, Joseph Tomlinson and Andy Matthew have been riding the big jumps! It's been really good fun and I have been improving a lot. Hopefully it continues. I will make 'A Day In The Life' soon as that's what everyone seems to be doing right now.
Breckenridge Half Pipe

Before the New Year the weather was terrible so I ended up heading to Woodward a few times. Which was really good fun. I managed to practise a few things and messed around a bit! I will definitely be going back soon! 










I know it's no Billy Morgan but it's difficult to be that good! Hope you all had a good Christmas and New Year! Enjoy!

Woodward!


So recently there has been a lot of bad weather here in Breckenridge, Wind, Snow, Flat light etc. Since it's difficult to ride in that sort of weather I have been to Woodward at Copper Mountain. It is full of trampolines, foam pits and skate bowls as you can see from the photo.

It's a really good training facility because you can practise all your tricks on the trampolines and also try and learn new tricks into the foam pit without having such a high risk of getting injured! I have managed to get a bit of footage from when I was there so I have been trying to put it together to make an edit. It's not as easy as you think!
