Winter Park 3/21/09
21 Mar, 2009
I actually was awake and left Steamboat before the sun rose to arrive in Winter Park at 8am for an early start to the day.
My friend, Tom was competing in the Freeskiing Open at Winter Park today so I went along for support and took my good camera to take some photos of the competition.
On the way to the competition we hit up the medium park and superpipe. The sun was shining but the temperature wasn’t too hot. The snow did soften up as the day went on.
Dark Territory competion time
I made laps with Tom as he went through the slopestyle course. The course for the contest was 4 jumps and a mixture of rails. Today was the pre-qualifiers for tomorrow’s final contest.
I made laps throughout the day and as the time came for Tom to lap through, I found a spot to sit on the side of the run and took photos. Good thing my canon camera lens has good zoom on it.

Skiers waiting to drop in to the first rail and then the jump line
My favorite photo from the batch was this unknown skier pulling a backflip

Unfortunately Tom didn’t make it to the finals, but it was a good day at Winter Park taking photos and riding.
