• Flips, Spins and Trampolines

I am now in Frisco, US staying with a few fellow slopestyle riders from Europe and the GB halfpipe team.

Last week we went riding at Keystone, Colorado as they have already built the park with some good medium jumps and tons of rails and boxes.

But this week the weather has been cold, windy and only light snowfall so we’ve just stuck to playing on the boxes and decided to spend the afternoons checking out Woodward at Copper.

Woodward is an indoor centre with trampolines, foam pits, soft mats, sprung floors and a dendex jump into a foam pit, all aimed at helping you to progress your tricks – and for playing around like a 10 year-old again. We had soooooooo much fun trying flips and spins on the trampolines and off the dendex jump. I can’t wait to go back. But it looks like we  might get some powder tomorrow if we’re lucky.

Some of the guys have the Grand Prix FIS halfpipe comp coming up this week at Copper Mountain so good luck to Kate, Lesley, Dom and Ben.

The following week is the DEW tour in Breckenridge which will be my first slopestyle contest of the season.
