Mammoth Spring Camp 2013

Our annual spring U.S. Snowboarding Camp in Mammoth was a success as always!! I would love to show you video of all the quad corks and 1880's that went down but I can't, mainly cause its an Olympic year so I gotta keep it all top secret and what not! But instead here is a little fun video I put together of all the other things we did! Mammoth. Always good times and good friends! Next Stop Hood in July!

We have the best coach, hands down. Bower and his goodie basket!

Sometimes you hit the deck, kinda like getting knocked out in a fight except you do it to yourself. Not fun.

I'm still Alive!

Hey everyone,
    Sorry I have been so long in posting. A lot has happened since the US Open, I got 7th at X Games in Tignes, got 3rd and the Throwback Throwdown and broke my collar bone! I am now getting ready to head to Mammoth CA for three weeks of private training with the rest of the US Snowboard Team. Here are some photos to get you guys caught up on the last month.
Shot midway through the second flip of my cab double ten. Fell every run in finals and ended up 7th. 
Finished off the season at home in Breck competing in the Throwback Throwdown, this innovative annual event is one I look forward to every year. Super stoked on how everything went, especially standing alongside friends Hitch Haller and Matt Ladley. 
"Professional Snowboarder" dosen't mean you cant get hurt! I broke my collar bone on April second, thankfully Dr Hackett was able to get me all fitted with plates and screws and now Im all good!!

US OPEN recap

HI everyone!! Sorry I didn't keep people up to date as this event was going along. I really should have let you all know where to watch me and how I was doing after Semi finals! Fortunately there is a webcast reply online so if you happened to miss any of the amazing action you can go back and check it all out. I will post the LINK at the bottom of this post! Sorry again /:

So now that that's outta the way. This years USO was awesome, the move from Stratton to Vail really was a good choice. Although I miss my native state of VERMONT, Vail was able to provide us with a phenomenal venue, lodging and the best halfpipe I have ridden to date! I should probably tell you that semi-finals went ok for me. I just made it into finals qualifying 11th outta the 12 finals spots. Everyone that made finals really deserved to be there!

Alrighty, skip to finals day! Saturday the second was a gorgeous day, beautiful weather, perfect pipe and my parents were able to fly out and watch. I woke up feeling super great, practice went well and I was feeling great for my runs. It would make me sound ungrateful if I said I was disappointed with 5th place. I rode the best I have inside of competition this year,...BUT not one of my three runs was executed as well as I would have liked and I really felt like I could have stood on the podium.

 The part that made my day though was that both Arielle and Taylor had great days. Taylor finished 6th and Rel in third place. For the three of us all to have top ten finishes at one of the biggest events of the year was a great feeling, I would say our house is a pretty decent threat. Haha. Check out the photos below!
