Oxbow: Back to Powder

By

Hello from France. It is incredible over here. On the 29th of January I boarded a flight into the new and unknown. The purpose was to come to the Oxbow: Back to Powder  event. It is an event with the purpose of pushing freestyle in the backcountry. 6 snowboarders and 6 skiiers invited to an all expense paid trip to ride powder.

The concept is amazing, a day of freeriding, with a choice of 5 different faces; a day of hitting a line of backcountry kickers into powder; a day of hitting a big air/ "perfect jump"; and a day jibbing funny wooden rails.

I arrived to Blue skies and over a foot of blower powder. temperatures must have been hovering around 0 degrees F and the pow was puffing up in buckets. We cruised the mountain and scoped the terrain. This mountain is sick!!! I have to agree with fellow event rider David Benedek when he said, " Isn't it great when your decisions turn out to be the right one." referring to the fact that conditions are perfect for an event like this. Wow, life is good.
