After over 2 weeks of snow and clouds we finally got to see the sun for three days in a row! Sunrise in the Backcountry before an unforgettable day on the first of three jumps.
Some last fine tuning on Jump #1
And the next day was acutally even better! We hit a jump which is called "the perfect one". And this is just what it feels like. Smooth take off and perfect landing.
Elias was killing it on this one! Be sure to check out his part in this year's People movie!
After another epic kicker session the day wasn't over yet but the most fun part was still to come. With the last light of the day we were shutteling each other up to some short but perfect natural lines.
This is what my first line looked like from the bottom:
And then be ready at the parking lot at 6.30 am which is already packed with people at this time:
After only three hours of shoveling we had already set up a decent jump thanks to Cameron Hunter's ambitious shoveling!
Although we just had two amazing kicker sessions the days before this should be the one blowing our minds. The landing was as soft as feathers and the sunset was overwhelming!
We have had such a good time on this jump that we just did not want to end it even after the light was gone. The last time I hit this jump was at 8.10 pm and this is what the conditions looked like at this time when taking an iphone picture:
This was the perfect ending session of an amazin week full of experiences. We've been snowboarding six days in a row getting up at 4.30 am and arriving home at 10.30 pm!
Now I am looking forward to finally getting some sleep for more than 6 hours a night and letting the sore muscles (neck, shoulders, arms, thumb, back, legs,...) rest for a couple of days and wait for the next snow storm to bring fresh snow again!
We'll be waiting for you Whistler's Backcountry!
