Sunny Shred...JUMPS!

Ok so here's the deal...Cashen already let the cat out of the bag on this one so I don't feel bad about letting yall in...Grouse Mountain is SICK right now. As the city lays blanketed in fog, those of us who are fortunate (and smart) enough to make it up the hill in the past few days have been treated to some wicked spring like conditions. The fog has kept many of the weekend warriors bunkered down in the city while the rest of us shred lap after lap under sunny skies with no lineups. The park crew has been hard at work, and it shows, the Quiksilver park is in PRIME condition right now. The soft, slushy landings make for some very huckable conditions. Here's a little clip of yours truly having fun on the first jump on the left side:

The Quicksilver park is divided into two sections, a large, three jump line of the left, and rails on the right.

On Thursday I took a few laps with some local kids. They were throwin' down in the slush, getting some corks, and rodeos down. Let me know if its you, or you know who these guys are, I missed their names.

So all in all everyone is super pumped on the conditions right now. Who would have thought after the crazy cold temperatures and the epic amounts of pow, we would be shredding in +10 degrees and slush...in January...only in Vancouver.
