Had the Kirkwood qualifier the other day, didn't manage to qualify though. I skied a more conservative line than I usually tend to pick, with the intention of finishing.
I'm a little bummed cos I didn't ski it as clean as I had wanted . I ended up 15th and they took through the top 14. gutted.
But all in all a good learning experience, I finally finished a FWT qualifying run on my feet which is good as I have been DQ in 2 out of the three american comps I have done. so now I have a feeling of what needs to be done for next time!

Stoked to grab 2nd place in the frontier 2* event today, with @tao_kreibich 🥇 @julianjamesa 🥉
I entered this comp with the goal of trying something new. I’ve been working hard on my tricks recently and I wanted to load up a run with stunts to see what would happen! Included stunts were: safety, 360, cork 7 (with a solid hip check after landing), front flip, 360!
It felt pretty wild!
Day off tomorrow with the 4* happening Wednesday!!

Yesterday @louis_charnaud and I set up a GNARLOM course for some of our #TeamTC kids at @trebleconenz !!
I even snagged a run through!
I think this is super good practice for skiing fluid lines.
