The main event was a jam session where I got to stage 3 out of 4.

At the end of the day, u12 and u16 competitors get 2 traditional slopestyle ‘individual’ runs.
My first run I came off two features early and only scored 47.00 points which meant it was all down to my second run which went to plan as I scored 63.50 points!
On my highest scoring run I did:
Switch on to the rail.
Lip slide on the pipe
Front 270 out of the rail
Switch 360 on the jump
Switch on to switch out on the pipe (however I did intend to do a back 270 out but I wasn’t set right for it)
Overall I had a really good day and I can’t wait for the next two weekends as I’m skiing at Stoke this Saturday in The Charity JAM and then visiting London for the Ski and Snowboard Show the weekend after!

A few weeks ago I competed in the English Slopestyle Championships at Chill Factore in Manchester. I had a really good day and I was really happy with my placing! I came 3rd in my age category (U16) and 8th overall!
My first final run I did: switch on back 270 out, lip slide front 270 out, switch on to forwards, a 360 and a stall.
Transfer Safety 180
My second run I did: switch on hand drag, lip slide, ski slide, transfer 180 and then a stall.
In my first run I scored 59 and in my second run I scored 55!
On the podium with Haydn and Tom
Over all I had a great day and I was very happy with myself and the way I skied. Congratulations to Tom and Haydn who came first and second.
I’m exited to be heading out to Cervinia in a few weeks for some summer skiing on the Zermatt glacier with British Freeski Camps, watch for the pix and video!
