Orage March Madness

This past Sunday, Vancouver's only ski comp of the season, Orage March Madness, went down at Seymour. It was a perfect sunny day for a perfect comp. Unlike typical slopestyle format, 2 runs take your best score, this contest went down in jam fashion. Riders were assigned to categories and when your category was called you had 20 minutes to session anything on course on try to impress the judges. Good fun was had by all and in the end last year's winner, Todd Loukras out of Rossland ended up reclaiming top spot with Peter Hunter, who had a, shall we say, different run coming in second and ex-Grouse local/now Whistler kid, James Anderson bringing up third place. Shout out to another ex-Grouse local, Liam Casey for claiming the best trick of the day and a new pair of boots with a lip-270 onto the down-flat-down handrail. Killing it. As always, I had my camera out in full force, trying to get some shots. Not everything turned out the way I wanted, but here's what I came up with.

That's all for now,
