Skiing is flooding back into my soch-meed-feed and straight into my mind. So here’s my run from #FWT17 in Fieberbrunn!! Where I definitely did NOT stomp the backflip 🤘🏻😎🤘🏻 @head_ski @freerideworldtour @scottsports @marmot @marmot_nz_aus @vuarnetsunglasses @onmountainnz @icebreakernz #dropin #tothekore #kore117 #noshortcuts #ibex #austria #thisisfreeride

The run that landed me in 3rd place at the Alaska stop of #FWT17 was probably the rowdiest of my season! I kind of just wanted to hang out in the air for a bit, and that last hit definitely delivered! ☁️☁️☁️🦅☁️☁️☁️☀️☁️ @head_ski #tothekore #kore117 @scottfreeski #noshortcuts @icebreakernz @marmot @marmot_nz_aus @vuarnetsunglasses @onmountainnz @freerideworldtour @snowcentrenz @snowsportsnz @mypakagenz @goproanz #ibex #dropin #alaska #hoontime #m8 🐐

Arrived in Hakuba last night, it’s super cool to be here! Unfortunately, it sounds like it’s been raining a bit. Fingers crossed it cools down and we get some of the good stuff to #dropin to #FWT18!

Turns out weekend warrior missions from Vancouver - Revelstoke Mountain Resort are a thing... Don't trust the forecast folks just get up and go! #itsjustskiing

Im on my way to 🇯🇵Japan!🇯🇵
With the first stop of the @freerideworldtour just a few days away, I’m thinking back on my final run in #FWT17 at @verbier4vallees
I hope I can put down some more like this during #FWT18 !

Revy FWQ 4* day one went down today, unfortunately so did I...
I skied a decent first cliff then couldn't stick my second, with a pretty all-time front punch to yard-sale!

I'm gutted, but sometimes it's good to crash if only to find ways to tighten up the game for next time.

...

And "next time" is FWT stop one in Japan!

The folks who made the cut for day two definitely crushed it today.
And I am stoked to see Kiwi mate Jess Hotter making her way through day one in fourth place!

The weather gods were partying in the mountains today, which meant conditions weren’t much good for competing.
So, day one of the Revelstoke 4* has postponed until tomorrow!

Bloggy baby!!
Here’s an update, on my current state, stay up late, and read it with a mate!

Summer in Wanaka 2017 was an absolute hoot, and I am super excited for what 2018 has in store! Currently, I am in Revelstoke in Canada. After having a super good run of hot weather and sun at home in Wanaka, I drifted into town a couple of days before New Year's Eve and lucked out big time with my a

Today, @cammcdermid and I jumped over some trees!

Check out this snappy lil edit Charlotte Percle Photo&Film whipped up of me ripping about on the KORE 117 from HEAD SKI
This is my favourite set of send sticks that Head has come up with during the time I've been skiing for them.
Which, fun fact, is somewhere in the realms of 14 or 15 years!
Back to when I was first picked up by them in New Zealand as a grommy ski racer!

I have exciting news!
Next winter in New Zealand I will be working as the head coach of the Treble Cone Ski Area Freeride programme!
I am super excited to get started, and we will be working hard with Snow Sports NZ to create a solid pathway for young aspiring mad dogs!
I am stoked for this opportunity to progress as a coach, and I can't wait to help the kids send it in some of the best Freeride terrain in NZ!!

...

I have worked as an instructor and more recently an HPC coach at Cardrona Alpine Resort, NZ since I left school, which is something like 7 seasons. The crew at Cardrona have taught me heaps about teaching and coaching as well as allowing me all the flexibility I needed to work while also fitting in comps and training. So thanks a heap guys!
