Just got back this week from Bardonecchia, Italy where the first FIS World Cup slopestyle was held. I had a great time there and the course was so good! The course included a down rail at the top, butter box to a huge jump line consisting of 4 jumps. I had a great run up to last jump where I scrubbed my landing but still got a decent score which I so nearly qualified into semi- finals with. Also Jack Shakleton came so close to qualifying too. This was annoying as Claire Frost and Ed Gunn qualified to semi-finals, but it got cancelled due to bad weather so there was no overall score or points which was a shame for everyone riding. It was still a good week because there was plenty of fresh powder lines which we all enjoyed.
