Who did you have the best session with at Peace Park?

I don’t think I could mention one person as we all ripped together so much. But I think the day that was most fun and memorable, was the day all the Jackson boys came and shredded. Travis, Carter, Guch, and Kinger, it was so fun and was good to see that they enjoyed the park so much.

What as your favorite feature?

I think my favorite was the volcano feature at the top of the pipe because it just set you up with so much stoke before you dropped in for either the pipe, or you could hit the hips on either side of the pipe. I would love to see more of this, stuff above the pipe. Spices it up a bit.

What was the craziest thing you saw go down?

Ulrik try double front flip off the left hip. Or the single front flip he did was pretty ridiculous too. Bunch of amazing handplants by everyone, Marks cab 1260 was pretty ridiculous. Ben Ferguson, epic air time.

What was the hardest trick to land?

The hip was a tough feature, super tight tranny on the take off. Any spin or trick on that was difficult. But all the boys made it look easy

When did you feel like you wanted to give up?

At about 6 pm every day. 1000 vertical feet of turns, berms, jumps, hips, and trannies. The legs were spent by the time the epic sunset light rolled around.

Why do you love snowboarding?

I think because when I’m snowboarding, my mind is solely focused on just shredding, and with some headphones in you can really just turn off and blast some airs and turns. When I snowboard I feel there is nothing else better that I could be doing at that moment. Even if it’s just turns.

What’s next for you?

It’s winter, I will be snowboarding as much as possible.
