End of January and in the middle of the competition season

The last three weeks I was on the road and passed Canada and America.

From the 6th till the 12th I stayed in Breckenridge at our rental house. After spending two weeks in Switzerland over new years I was looking forward to go back and shred Keystone and Breckenridge mountain. They got some fresh snow and made some more artificial snow. They could extend the park and built an unbelievable medium jump line with three jumps-two rails-three jumps and two rails! It was a lot of fun hitting this line all day long! You can see me riding the park in the following little edit!

As well from the 7th till the 10th was the first FIS Worldcup in Copper. I didn’t had luck and bailed two times in a row and finished the competition on the 51th place! I almost had to lough about that result. No luck in the new year.

My second stop was in the ice cold area of Stoneham. We couldn’t belief how cold it can be but we were snowboarding in temperature under -25 celsius degrees. Stoneham was cold but they didn’t had much snow. So the park looked o.k but it wasn’t crazy! At the World Champion Chip I could land all my runs and was super stoked and I can call me know vice world champion!

After cold Canada we flew back to Denver and drove up to Aspen for the Winter X Games. The X Games are the biggest winter freestyle event! The course was perfect and super funny to ride- as always! We had four days training in very good conditions. On Saturday was our final and I couldn’t land a perfect run, maybe I was too tired after all this funny training sessions! Ending on the 5th place isn’t too bad but my goal was to stand on the podium! Maybe I will ride better next year and rest more before the comp :)!

X Games is up this week!

The slopestyle looks super nice and feels comfortable to ride! It is for sure one of the longest course with 4 jibb obstacle and 4 jumps!

We will have a lot of fun this week! I hope the weather stays sunny and warm!

World Snowboard Champion Chips in Stoneham

PodiumI’m super stoked about my silver medal at the World Snowboard Champion Chips in Stoneham,Canada.

There are not many words to say, I am so happy to share the podium with Canadian ripper Spencer O’Brien and Australian beauty Torah Bright!

I would like to thank every single one who wished me good luck, to the ones who were cheering loudly, of course to the one who was waxing my board and to all who were here with me and stand outside for the whole day in minus 30 degrees to support me! Thanks thanks thanks….

Breckenridge Coffee Time

It was a cold week in Breckenridge but as well a really nice one! I decided to hang today and went to drink some coffee at this little nice place called Amazing Grace in Breckenridge. Isabel and I enjoyed some reading in our study books. We couldn’t learn a lot because after half an hour there, Jamie visited us for a drink. After some time more and more riders came in and we had a really nice talk. It was good to meet every one beside the slopes!

There was this nice day, in which I learned some new tricks and made a little edit.

But there was a really hard day for me, I couldn’t land a run at the World Cup in Copper. I can’t remember when this happened to me, luckily it is a long time ago and I didn’t got injured! There was this crazy storm and the conditions where really bad. But in the end it was the same for every rider and I am super stoked for my friends Isabel Derungs and Elena Könz, they finished on 3rd and 4th place!
