It was another showdown at Squaw Valley USA today. Yet another one of those days when you’re STOKED that you’re not at Whistler, Jackson, Telluride, Stowe, or god forbid…Snowbird. It’s real simple, we’re just cooler here. I mean…we are Californians after all. Perfect powder, warm California sunshine, hot girls, plenty to huck yourself off, and one helluva show going on at all times right in front of you. Combine all that with blackout dates that have all the local rippers on the sidelines right now and you’ve got yourself a nice little holiday. So yeah, what the hell? Lets do it all again with 2 more feet of perfect California snow by Thursday morning? I think I’m okay with that.
Mike Wilson teed off on the fingers today. The double backflip he threw was absolutely gorgeous. The landing wasn’t super soft, but Mike is made of pure muscle. Adam Ruscitto gets a special note today as well as he was the first to ski McConkey’s with turns this season. Eric Bryant provided the sweet helmet cam footy.
Here is a look of Wilson’s Back’s from the point of view of Jeremy Jones. “This may be the biggest air I have ever seen in person.”
