Telus Fest Day 1. Big Hip!!

Day one of the Whistler Ski and Snowboard Festival, by Telus, started off with Monster's "The Shred Show" Big Hip competition. The giant hip was sculpted down in the skiers plaza at the bottom of Whistler mountain for all to view.
The day started off with 2 hours of practice, and with this being a TTR event everyone came out to try and earn some points. After the sun went down the finals started with the top 10 qualifiers going head to head in a best 2 out of 3 jumps format.

In the end young local ripper Darcy Sharpe one with a FS doublecork 10, and a BS 9.
Antoine Truchon took second place, and Jon Versteeg took third.

Tomorrow it's the boardersyle race. Boardercross with a twist!

Jess Rich Charging with another 1st place win at the Showdown

Last weekend Whistler hosted the 15th annual showcase showdown a slopestyle event not to be missed. This year the course was set up at the base of Whistler Mountain with snow dumping on the course for most of the afternoon making it slow causing many jumpers to knuckle the landing hard

The event was won by Jesse Millen for the men while Pro Ride's own Jess Rich took home the podium for the women.  Yay Jess, we are super proud of you.  Jess has been killing it lately with a 1st place podim finish also at the Aspen/snowmass open this past February.  

"I'm so stoked," said Rich, who stomped a backside 540 tail grab as part of her winning run. "We came in today (with it) super snowy and didn't know how it was going to go, but it worked out really good."
