TELUS Festival, The Final Day | Ski Superpipe

April 24th, 2012 by

Sunday April 22rd was the last day of the 2012 Telus World Ski and Snowboard Festival and the last event was none other then the Super Pipe. Although my liver is happy the Festival is over it sure was one hell of a ride.  The weather for this contest as well as most of the others wasn’t all that great but at least it didn’t rain!  The event went off with skiers throwing down some huge doubles and getting some crazy amplitude.  After the half pipe event was over they had a big hit contest where one skier overshadowed everyone with a double cork in a thong, not quite BN Gnar points but its gotta count for something. As he rode away there was a noticeable bit of road rash on his back from the tumble, its definitely worth the watch!

TELUS Festival Day 8 | BIG AIR

April 23rd, 2012 by

Saturday April 21 of Whistler’s Telus Festival brought us the Big Air contest!  The Big Air is pretty much the biggest event of the Telus Fest.  For those who don’t know, the basically build a huge jump at the bottom of the mountain so that thousands of people can gather in the village to watch.  Of course this year in classic Whistler forum the weather didn’t really help to much.  There were still all the biggest names in Freestyle Skiing there to throw down but wasn’t really the spectator friendly sport if has been in the past.  During the finals it started to really pour rain which made speed a huge issue.  Most of the girls ended up knuckling the jump pretty bad making throwing any serious trick a risky move.  In the end the number one girl ended up winning with a 360, while the number one guy won with a double cork 1620, this begs the question, should there be a “ladies tee” in these competitions?

-And Gus Kenworthy took the win with a dub 1620

Wow! Not sure if I watched a big air event or a aerials contest? Speedy should really enter the next big air event, cross his skis in the air and take home the car. Sorry Bobby.

Telus Fest -World Skiing Innovational Slopestyle

April 23rd, 2011 by

The sun came out and the park rats threw down. Comparable to the fat person line at McDonalds as countless doubles were served, and more meat was spun than on that website. Bobby Brown took home the Gold (imagine that), Tom Wallisch the silver and my former pupil Gus Kenworthy the bronze.
