Grey skies came in early on day two of Oxbow: Back to Powder, so the organizers opted to have us hit their “wood jibs”. These consisted of a bunch of rails, with plastic tops and metal coping made of wood. Feeling that I had come all this way, even I hit a few. I hadn’t hit a rail in at least 3 years, and have never enjoyed them.
Luckily, after 3 runs through the park, we were given the go ahead to take off and see what we could find. Christoph Weber and I opted for some long thin avalanche chutes through thick woods we had seen the day before. The snow was deep, and the trees turned out to be THICK!!!
