A couple weeks back I saw Travis Rice at European Xgames who told me all about Nick Perata and Mark Sullivan organizing the King of the Hill again after 10 years off. He told me I should show up. A couple days later I contacted Perata and a week later, I was arriving in Valdez in an RV to shred those amazing mountains!
Enni Rukajärvi backed up her TTR World Championship with another TTR win at the 3 Star Oakley Girlsessions in Ruka Finland. Fellow Finn Saana Pehkonen placed second and Brit Claire Frost took third.
Kelly Clark added another win to her impressive list this season at the third annual Cover Girl Snow Angels Invitational. The unique event, hosted by Aspen Snowmass and Gretchen Bleiler, brings together some of the top women riders. It’s not only a competition, as the ladies get to enjoy extra activites like yoga and spa sessions.
It’s a few days since I got back from Laax and I’ve now had just about enough sleep to feel human again.
The Animal Rock Night on Friday was an absolute epic. There were fluro spandex trousers, lycra swimsuits, fur coats and oodles of eyeliner – and that was just the men. There was a monster moshpit, people dangling from the ceiling and more home-made tattoos than you’d see in your average top security prison. A legendary night.
Some of the top female snowboarders in the world gathered at Mammoth Mountain last weekend for the Roxy Chicken Jam. Riders were competing, not just to win the Chicken Jam, but to be named the Ticket To Ride Global Champ.
Kelly Clark kept up her strong season with another win. Clark dominated in the pipe with her signature big amplitude and a frontside 900 to frontside 720 to cab 720 in her run. Japan’s Rana Okada took second, and Elena Hight took third. Clark also won the Zumiez Best Trick award for her frontside 900.

We knew the weather was looking dodgy for today so the riders competing in the slopestyle contest were up on the hill early to get their practice runs in.
The Roxy Chicken Jam gets under way at Mammoth Mountain today. The competition will determine the overall TTR Women’s World Champ. We’ve got a video edit from TTR previewing the competition.
