Paul Brichta: 3 Days in Steamboat
Hey everyone just wanted to fill you in on what I’ve been up to these last couple of weeks. My 3 week stretch of competitions started at the Burton Am Series event at Winter Park in Colorado. There I made finals in Slopestyle, which was an accomplishment because there were a lot of good riders, and in Halfpipe I finished 2nd and won Best Trick.

Paul Brichta checks in from Mammoth
In December I finally finished my first semester of college at the University of Minnesota. I am planning on a degree in physics and I had a 3.25 GPA my first term! After finishing school I immediately left for Colorado, my home for this winter, and started to practice in Copper’s 22 ft halfpipe. After riding there for a few days I had to pack my bags again and left for Mammoth Mountain in California for the US Snowboarding Grand Prix.
