Hi Girls- Well it's that time of year again. Winter is upon us and to celebrate the early snowfall I have been up to my home mountain Mt Buller the last few weekends preparing for what i hope will be an epic season.
My back injury from last year has put a temporary hold on my competitive career but that won't keep me off my board nor the snow that's for sure! This Aussie season I will be doing a little more media work and powder turns than normal- but's that's not a bad thing....
On the weekend was the Mt Buller "Junior Urban Pro" The best UNDER 16 riders from around the country came to Buller for the slopestyle jam to fight it out for some serious prize money. (I seriously would not have known what to spend $500 on at 12 years old??) These grommets are frighteningly talented and are setting the pace for our 'older' generation of riders. It was fun to be a part of and it's great that there are more events on the calender for the kids!
