Crystal mountain, WOW!!! What a place, a secluded Gem hiding in the shadow of Mount Rainier. Peak after peak stretching out with spines, cliffs, and chutes…. “Dropping”. Fun times with great friends. It has been an amazing week.
This is my 6th contest with the North Face Masters tour, and I have to admit it was the best. Showed up to blue skies, and some lingering freshies. Day one of the comp, the usual hardpack, perfect for separating the men from the boys. Day two weather day, 2-3 inches of wet fresh with some light rain and snow, but soft and shreddable. Killer shred crew, roll into a zone and taking no prisoners. Finally day three….. EPIC!!!! Best venue yet, blizzard conditions with a foot plus of fresh snow. Stoked!!!!
Driving up to Washington I had a feeling the competition would be stiff. Sure enough the amazing terrain has given birth to some amazing riders. We all tried our hardest, but the two top spots went to Crystal mountain locals. Way to hold it down boys.
