WWSRA On-Snow Demo at Mission Ridge Day 2
09 Feb, 2012
On the first day of demos I apologized for bringing the sun to Washington but yesterday the Northwest was back in full action. There was new snow on Mission Ridge for day two of the demos and a storming day on the mountain with cloudy conditions. Some runs you’d be riding through foggy clouds and come out to clear visibility. It was a good day to try a range of boards and enjoy some freshies in the process.
I ended up riding the Lib Tech Attack Banana with K2 Formula bindings, GNU B-Pro with Union Trilogy bindings, Nitro Eero Ettala with Union Force bindings and Capita Dan Brisse with Union Trilogy bindings.
As the day winded down, it was time for the Chinese Downhill race. The Chinese Downhill is everyone racing at the same time down the same run, whoever gets to the bottom first is the winner. It’s pretty fun and crazy the adrenaline going through you to point it down a run. Salomon/Bonfire were on hand to have a riders meeting and get everyone up to the top of the course.

At the end of the day, Tristan who rides Stevens Pass took it for the men and Macy who took it for the women. It was a pretty rad race to compete in and have fun with. I ended up taking 3rd for women which was good cause I was last out of the start.
