Pow to Park.

Today we started our day by doing a few runs to find some fresh snow to warm up before heading to the park. Ian lead us on a nice little hike where we enjoyed the views and then the kids did a cool rock drop. Chris Waker lead the charge and popped off the rock with style.

Cardrona had perfect weather today and the park was groomed up nicely. Hunter Wood was in the lift line and said something along the lines of "Do you ever just feel like your going to have a good day riding?" Well that was just what he did, he was one of the only riders spinning the last big jump in the park doing front 360's and backside 720's. The rest of the SMS Team was riding the park well and getting some of their runs ready for the NZ Open. Spencer landed a switch back 900 on the second jump which will be great for his Open run.
Tomorrow we register for the event and have official training. Wed is Slopestyle pre-qual's. So we'll be heading to the mountain early tomorrow for a big day of practice and hopefully as sweet of a day as we enjoyed today. Take care, Ross
