Maybe ouch is the word… not bird

Posted by piphunt on March 22, 2010 in Adventures of Pip, skiing

I may not of won the Bird, or been anywhere near the podium, but I’m definitely glad I competed. I tried my hardest to ski for me this time. Not for the judges, the crowd, or my ego, but to just ski a line that I would enjoy. I didn’t realize how difficult that would […]

Day One, Crested Butte FWT

Posted by piphunt on February 20, 2010 in Adventures of Pip

Day one of the third stop of the FWT went pretty well. Competitors had free refills all day and skied more pow runs than comp runs. Due to technical difficulties and a forgotten part in SLC, the live feed did not happen yesterday. The women finished their comp runs, but only half of the men’s […]

Mckenna’s mum was looking online for stories and photos relating to the FWT event in Revelstoke just over a week ago. She found this one of my crash: oops. Crashes happen!

Late last Monday Andy Sabatier , Crystal-Rose Lee and I rolled into my hometown of Crested Butte, Co to compete in the 18th Annual Crested Butte Extremes.

Tuhelluride

Posted by piphunt on February 7, 2009 in Adventures of Pip, skiing

I made a last minute decision to travel to Telluride, CO. this weekend for the IFSA World Tour Qualifier, because,  A. why not? I’m not prequaled and B. I just really, really needed to escape from the black hand of smog that currently holds Salt Lake City in its grasp. Did you know that smog […]
