Ride with Russ

The past Saturday ruled. The last 3 years I have been doing this event and each year, thanks to Perisher and the Rob Kneller Youth Foundation, the event just seems to get bigger and bigger.

This year we had quite a lot of kids sign up for the event. We had two different groups with an intermediate/advanced group in the morning and a beginner group in the afternoon.

I’m not sure who had more fun, the kids trying all the tricks and learning new things, or me? I enjoy doing this kind of stuff so much and find it really fulfilling being able to pass on some of the knowledge I have gained of my years as a professional skier. We had kids doing backflips, 360′s, sliding rails, hitting little cliffs and in everything they did, they all gave it 100% which for me was awesome to watch!

I just want to thank Perisher and the Rob Kneller Youth Foundation for helping make this event possible. I’m sure all the kids are super grateful for the help and for such a fun day! Thanks guys!

I can’t wait for the event next year!

Over and out,
