The weather has continued to be bluebird, which made great viewing for Saturday’s events. Headed up to Deer Valley to see the TBR camp athletes compete on the course that had held the World Cup the week before and regard as possibly the toughest course in the World. It was great to see how far a few of my former TBR Grom athletes have progressed over the past few seasons. There were some great performances, most notably Jakara Anothony taking out 2nd place.
Straight from there head across to Park City Mountain Resort to catch the Men’s Slopestyle final of the US Grand Prix event, which was the last chance for US team members to qualify for the Sochi Winter Olympics. There was some incredible performances, and a great preview to what we are going to see at the Olympics. Taking out first place was Joss Christensen ahead of Gus Kentworthy and Bobby Brown.
Decided not to hang around for the Halfpipe event, as I need the rest for todays drive to Colorado. Headed to Maxwell’s for dinner with the TBR crew again before calling it an early night.
Jumped in the car this morning headed out of Salt Lake City for another solo drive across to Beaver Creek. It was another scenic drive through the Wastach Mountains then onto the open plains near Moab and then into the Rockies.
Plan is to spend the rest of the week here, skiing Beaver Creek and Vail. I will then be heading to Breckenridge and Keystone for a few day before heading to Denver for the SIA Trade Show.
