Just a lil’ update from Mt. Hood! Last week was my signature session at High Cascade, as well as the women’s k2 alliance product testing week. It was awesome to check out the new line for 2011. There’s definitely some sick product that I can’t wait to get on! We’ll be shooting the catalog with the K2 team in Chile coming up in August…so not too many sleeps to go and we’ll be shredding some deep pow and getting some soul turns in. Yes!
So back to HCSC…one of my favorite features at high cascade was the airbag. I was pretty skeptical of the whole idea when it came out because I’d heard of so many people getting hurt. I passed by a bunch of campers so unbelievably stoked that they’d gotten all these tricks they’d been working on, so I figured I might as well give it a go. It didn’t seem like many people were getting hurt, and I saw some carnage go down! One of my first tries I rotated a backflip so slowly that I had time to visualize everything possible that was going to go wrong before my face hit the bag. And all I got was a bruised ego. So…from there, I decided that this was a good thing for my snowboarding. I’m getting to work on some tricks that I haven’t had the chance to try in awhile.
