Two edits from the last couple of weeks. I’ve had a busy time on the slopes here in the north of England, it’s been really enjoyable.
The first one was from the Friday night freestyle session at Xscape in Castleford, it was a really good session and a great park!
The next one is from the British Freeski Camp at Halifax. It was the first dry slope I’ve ever skied on and it was really good! I was practicing my 360 and was happy to get it by the end of the day!
Thanks to Matt and Aaron from Xscape and Becky and Joe from British Freeski Camps for their coaching and support, a second big shout out to Becky for the fab video footage.
Here’s a selection of pics and a short video of me last night at Snozone Castleford. I’ve been skiing since I was 5 years old but have only been skiing freestyle since April 2013.
Since April I have come on loads. I started off going straight over boxes and just trying basic grabs such as safety grabs. As I progressed on I was starting 180’s. After that I started to do boxes sideways and different grabs such as mutes and other straight tricks like daffies. Just recently I have moved on to doing 360’s and rails sideways.
I love skiing and I just wanted to say thanks to the freestyle instructors at Xscape, Matt, Nick, Danny, Nubiel and Ian. These are the people who have helped me come on and progress to where I am now.
I hope in the future I can come on even more and start competing in competition when I feel the times right
Shred @ Snowzone, Castleford!
