Day 4 over

Teamwork making the dream work!

The team made the most of some pretty poor weather today, riding just about every snow condition in a day. The drymat rats also had to put up with next to zero vis, learning some all-mountain riding skills for most of the day.

One of the highlights of the day was hooking up with Neil McNair, Tammy Esten and James Sweet for an adventure including pow, rock drops, abseil sections and slingshot nets! The crew were stoked, especially having met and had a good chat with Jenny Jones before at lunch.

Short rail jam ensued in the Val park, before we called it to go eat burgers and watch the womens pipe final. As Fin put it, "just being up close to some of the airs - right there in your face, was pretty mental!" Probably our fav rider though, was little Tia - rocking the miniature gear and her Doodoo.

Fin got some training time in the X Park, venue for tomorrow's Radar final. "Met Matt from Norway, sick rider! Jump looked intimidating at first, but was good when I got used to it"

Looking forward to a mini edit from GoPro expert James after todays pow adventures, online soon! Meantime crew are chilling and weathers looking better for tomo. Heres a link to Jamie Nicholls and one of his training runs on the Euro X course, with the mens slopestyle running as a straight final tomorrow. Going to be a full day, stoked.
