The ride from Breckenridge to Aspen…Thanks Bishop!
Got to the Oakley mansion just outside the village last night and got some sleep. The house is insanely, sickeningly, obscenely big and I am going to do my best at showing you in a coming update. In the meantime, here are some moments from today’s slopestyle practice. I guess it goes without saying that the X Games course builders once again managed to squeeze in 7 features where there should be about 4. The jumps are so close together and so poorly built I feel like I’m back in a skier X course circa 1999.
Dear X Games slopestyle course builders;
Professional skiing athletes do not enjoy hitting flat icy stepdown jumps with about 0.5 seconds of skiing between them, nor do they think your idea of a tv production friendly “video game inspired” course is legitimate for the most prestigious competition in the sport. After 13 years of mistakes and rider complaints one would assume you had this figured out by now.
