As always, the Copper Grand Prix started off this season with a bang! The pipe got better every day, and it was awesome getting to see everyone after some time off. I ended up landing one run in the qualifiers, but in the end I didn’t make it to finals. Although I didn’t make it, it was a good time watching some other Burton girls throw down in the final! Congrats to Kelly Clark on the win, and to Maddy Schaffrick on making such an amazing comeback with second!
Ty Walker at the Copper Rev Tour
Wishing everyone a happy holiday! I’m super excited to get home: It’s been a long month in Colorado! After a few weeks of fundamental work with my coach Dave and A LOT of drills, and I am definitely happy to rest for a while.
This past month, I made the decision to not compete as much as I had last season (doing Grand Prix, Dew Tour, USASA Nationals, and both events in Rev Tour). I skipped the Grand Prix along with the Dew Tour and only entered Rev Tour Slope, which I competed in today.
Eric Beauchemin: Shredding in Austria
Hope everyone had a good fall. I was lucky enough to go to Austria for 2 months and get some early shreddin done with my lady. The second day I arrived we took a 8 hour drive to Bispingen, Germany where I found my favorite place in the world, which was called the SNOW DOME. This place was an indoor mountain, filled with tons of rails, boxes, and even a mini jump.

Best of luck this season Clayton! We hope to see you at the National Championship this coming April at Copper Mountain.
Benji Farrow: Copper Grand Prix
So the 2011 Copper Grand Prix is a wrap, and it was one for the books!! ESPN has a already called it one of the best pipe contests they have seen. Myself, Christian Haller, Ryo Aono, Greg Bretz, Louie Vito, and winner Luke Mitrani all had scores in the 90's! That rarely happens. After taking a hard fall on my head in Fridays practice doing a cab ten I was unsure whether I was going to be able to compete to my full potential.
