WinterFest Invitational Slopestyle

Somehow I was invited to a slopestyle for the Queenstown Winter Festival, they must have been scraping the barrel since my last slopestyle podium was in 2007! And that streak continues, I came 5th out of 6th male skiers. Even though I was happy with what I put down on the day I could not put it together in one single run. Nevertheless it was a rad day with great crew!
