After a slight bit of bad luck I got some good news. One of the Snowboarders, Ben Kilner, through a friend got a couple of us box seats to a Bronco's game. It was my first ever NFL game and it was an amazing experience. It's very different from any other sporting event I have been to. There was hardly any away fans.
Later that night the 4 of us drove back to Frisco where we were living so the next day we could get back on top of training. But very rarely did the weather cooperate with me this season. It seemed to wind, snow or flat light which made things very frustrating. When things did clear I knew I would have to take it easy since I was coming back from the hernia surgery. But after a summer off it felt amazing to be back on skis. The first couple of weeks back skiing were spent at Keystone mainly as not much was open in Breckenridge. They were still in the process of making snow and getting things ready.
After the New Year I knew it was time to get my head down and start working hard again. I had a filming project with Josh Birch which I really wanted to concentrate on. So the majority of my focus went into that. I found it to be a good way to get through a big trick list because I wanted a lot of them in the edit. It was really easy working with Josh as we both had a fairly good understanding of what we wanted/needed out of each other. I have faith that he will make a good edit and I am really excited about seeing it!
The next trip for me is the World Championships in Austria. I fly to Munich next weekend for the week. It will be my first contest since the Olympics so I am really excited to compete and hopefully I can get my run down. I might be a bit rusty but I think I will manage ok!
PS. I don't expect anyone to read any of that. All I do is look at the pictures...
Some big news coming soon! Hope you all enjoy.
