Idaho day 3, 4 and 5

The last few days have been pretty fun. Day 3 of the camp it was dumping snow, which is definately better than the rain we had previously been experiencing. I spent the morning jumping and started getting my feet back. Then in the afternoon I slide some rails. Although I’m not where I want to be with my rail skiing and I feel like I have a lot more to learn, I still did some stuff I was happy with and I felt good on my skis again.

Day 4 I decided to have a chill day. I relaxed all day long as it was pretty shitty weather and the forecast said theΒ  next day the sun would make an appearance. That night though we went to a super cool barn which has a jump into a foam pit, a mini ramp and two tramps. I spent the majority of my time on the ramp, which is one of the best mini ramps I have ever skated!

Today (day 5) was epic. The snow was definitely a little hard which was intimidating, but I figure, its not always going to be soft, or sunny during a competition so I might as well spend my time wisely and try and get some skiing done. The sun was in and out from behind the clouds all day. I definitely feel like I have my feet back. I had the best day skiing I have had since I have been here. I landed a bunch of tricks I am really happy with.

The barn is epic

Hopefully tomorrow is just as productive!

Off to do some more skating and tramping now.
