Everything snowboarding


Recommended Posts

Hell, this might be everything skiing too at this rate of activity.

Excited to see the slopestyle events and looks like women got first run.  I dont see the smog, looks like blue skies, and riders are actually raving about the course.  30 minutes til we see whats up.

Congratulations New Zealand on your first ever winter gold medal! Genuinely happy for you. Huge achievement. Good on Zoi!

And not unhappy with Tess’s placing for Australia either. Wasn’t really expecting that.

Barely made a 24hr news cycle...except in my hometown of Wanaka.

Good all the same for our small but vocal snow sports community. (just not a big thing in NZ...more a "Summer" nation outside the Rugbys.)

Looking forward to the end of the week where some very good medalling prospects are to be had, including another from Zoi.

Cant believe someone dropped an 1800 for the first time in Olympic competition and only got a silver for it.  Im sure that will generate a good bit of controversy, but good for Canada for taking first and third in a hotly contested slopestyle.

The controversy is the guy got badly outscored in the technical portion, yet got a near perfect overall and an overall that was just enough to keep him in silver over a better third run from McMorris.

Phew! The cross never fails to get the blood pumping. Pity about Belle. Gold finally for Jacobelis - no premature showboating this time!

That poor, poor girl.........that is a hell of a stigma broken by Jacobelis.  Happy for her.

Its just a shame that the first gold medal came during these genocide games. :s
