Chris Tierney be Rippin'
We had another great training week at Mt Snow. They continue to set up new features at Carinthia, fueling progression and creativity. I have had the pleasure of riding closely with Chris Tierney this week and have been impressed with his level of riding. I challenged four of my best riders to land all four 720s in one run on wednesday and Chris was the only one to pull it off (the others came close). Its one thing to be able to land all four, but in one run? Nice job Chris. He then proceeded to blast the biggest straight air of the day off of the 50ft Dew Tour jump (see photo below).
Kevin Mattice got some extra film/photo time at Carinthia yesterday and he made the most of it. Check his videos on vimeo.com (search Kevin Mattice). He is riding solid too, check his railing stall photo at top.
This weekend is the last usasa events. Buses will leave SMS at 7:30 each day. The end of the year party will be at Snow Barn after Sunday's pipe event. Expect a strong finish out of our crew. Final photo is of Connor Hudson who is making quite a comeback and has been sooo fun to ride with.
