WIth nary a trace of snow in 90% of the US (Colorado just got hit), successful resorts rely on parks and pipe to generate business. Two-thirds of the Northstar resort is rocky and barren, bur they created a worthy park and as the saying goes, "If you build it, they will come".
Enjoy the images of our first day here, and know that:
Dan Landy linked switch back 5 to front 7 on the comp jump line, the kid is ready to do damage.
Marian Lobell is inches away from stomping back 360s, and has 4 days to dial them in for the Rev Tour.
Ezra Racine landed a cork front 5 to cab 9 on the comp line, and confused the many rail features with his switch/reg mash-ups.
Connor Callen pushed through his foot pain and shredded rails and jumps all afternoon. He is stoked to be in Cali.
BIba now has legit backside 180s and is itching to spin the bigger jump tomorrow.
Phoebe gaps to lipslide on the down-flat-down rail and stomped some lovely backside 360s off the bigger comp jump.
Peter Cerulo continues to please all viewers with his style and landed his first front 720s of the year (I believe).
