This year was my first time at the Brits snow tour in Laax. It was a really cool week and I managed to come away with 2 medals a silver in Senior womens Halfpipe and Bronze in senior womens slopestyle. The pipe was really slushy and quite hard to ride but it seemed like I had gotten used to it by the finals helping me to secure my spot in second place.
In the slopestyle my run was 50-50 on the rail, 50-50 to boardslide on the up box,noseslide on the flat down,BS5 and a nosegrab over the medium line. We only had one run which meant our qualifying run would be our run which counted. Luckily I didnt play it safe, it was a shame that the girls didn’t get a chance to show what they could really do in the finals but still alot of fun. Hopefully I can go back next year and do my tricks over the big line, as I didn’t want to get overzealous on my first one and look sketchy over the bigger jumps.
The week was sooo good and it didnt even really feel that much like a competition because all my friends were there and everyone was really nice.
I have also gained myself a few more TTR points which will hopefully give me a better ranking for the season.
Here are some pics from the week :). Hopefully I can get some more as the week goes on!
