One fine day.

This year February 1st was a Wednesday, but it could have also been the best day of your life...

The Pro Ride crew woke up early in the morning heading for fresh tracks breakfast in the Roundhouse, at the top of the Whistler gondola.


KT, Benny, and Andrew stoked to be uploading at 7:30


At the top of the gondola we were greeted by fresh snow, breath taking views and the promise of sunny skies ahead.

Shaun White Perfect 100

Shaun White has once again made X Games history with a run which earned him a perfect 100 score. Shaun had already taken the gold but still let it all hang out during his victory lap. With huge amplitude all the way down and back to back double mctwist 12 to fs double cork 12 there's no arguing with the judges on this one.

 

Mark McMorris - double gold!

Mark McMorris took gold in both the big air and the slopestyle in this year's winter X-Games. McMorris beat out Seppe Smitts, Eric Willet, Seb Toots, and Torstien Horgmo in the finals to take the top spot in the big air. The big air finals saw the first triple corks in competition by McMorris and Torstien, but McMorris's constancy beat Torstien's almost flawless last jumps. In the slope McMorris came out a head of Sage Kotsenburg (second) and Peetu Piironinen (third) with his smooth relaxed style taking him all the way to a bs 12 off the money booter at the end.

Torstien's perfect BS triple cork, but not enough to beat out Mark McMorris' consistent performance.

 

 

It's storming.

With 93cm of snow over the last week Whistler Blackcomb has now had 6.4m (21ft.) of snow so far this season. It has been a big week for the Pro Ride crew... with all this snow we've had no choice but to smash powder laps everyday!
Everyone is starting to get sore, but we're not ready for a break yet!

Bouncing at Bounce

The Pro Ride crew headed over to Bounce Acrobatic Academy Inc. to have some fun and gain some air awerness.  With trampolines everywhere, including on the walls, it's not hard to have fun here.
The tramp boards and foam pit made it easy to learn a few new tricks, and mess around with some moves that might be just a dream... for now.
