Tignes Project Day 1 Edit

Groms explore Tignes, Fin's through to Quicksilver Radar Final

The groms have dealt with early starts, no sleep, cars, busses, planes, annoying old lady, unpacking, car parking, shopping and general faffing, but by 9.30am this morning, the team were in amongst it.

The sun shone over a perfectly groomed Val Park, and the guys got a good introduction to the huge terrain that makes up Tignes, with some great pow found up high.

Loads covered today, and Fin’s progress into the Quicksilver Radar final has capped off a wicked day. The final’s this Friday, everyone’s stoked and to Fin, the news is “awesome”.

Lara Wood: “Most intense days riding I’ve ever had, amazing snow and really good weather, eel faii du soleil”

Kris Bell: “Perfect park, no marmots, lots of fun off piste bits – great to see the X Games Course”

Adam from Tignes Spirit sorted out Lara’s board this evening, which was in need of some TLC! Apparently “its not the same board, so stoked”. Nice one Adam. Kris put on a fine display of cooking tonight, movies are on now and legs are tired.

Here is a look back at yesterday’s travels, shown in an interesting edit format courtesy of Lara and Kris. Stuff from today to follow…
