Big White Ski Resort (CAN)

This was the first sanctioned NorAm race of 2020.  It featured Canadian and American World Cup racers because Feldberg, Germany World Cup got cancelled.  I was faced with excitement and adversity as I adapted to new race boards, tougher competition, and a brand new race-mindset in my second season of competition.

Gore Mountain (USA)

NorAm Cup February 3rd-7th RESULT INCONCLUSIVE:

Gore Mountain held a NorAm Cup for the first time.  Their course was not prepared on time and the features were not built to standard.  After hours of debate by officials, coaches and athletes, we raced ONLY timed trials.  Unfortunately we must run heats for results to count toward FIS & NorAm Cup points.  Regardless, I was fast "when it counted" and I time trialed for 3rd place.

Ski Cooper (USA)

I had just spent 2 weeks in Tahoe, California training with ASC Snowboard Club.  I was becoming familiar with how my new race boards felt & I continued to work on jumping and turning skills. 

Ski Cooper was a smaller course with tight turns.  I felt good in my mind and in my ability.

Beaver Valley (CAN)

8 weeks into the racing tour and I was eager to return to Canada.  Something about racing on Canadian soil adds a level of fire and confidence to my riding.  

The racing environment was feeling like second nature and I was making a name for myself.

Mont Orignal (CAN)

Returning to Mont. Orignal for a second time brought back memories and feelings from my first racing season.  As I gained mental confidence, I could feel that my motor skills were still catching up. I was eager for race #2, however it got cancelled due to weather. 

Back to the beginning...

            This was the first sanctioned sbx event that I entered.  Before this race I had gone down a regulation track under 20 times...  I felt out of place, while everyone around me rode specialized race boards, I stood on my GNU B-Pro.

Panorama, BC (CAN)

I had just spent 4 weeks training with Reign SBX, followed by 4 weeks in Big White, on my own, working on everything I had just learned.  I was eager to learn more, but looking back I was stuck in a 'crippled underdog' mindset.

Craigleith (CAN)

Travelling across Canada to a race was exciting and intimidating all at once.  Race #2 was nearly cancelled due to icy track conditions and several athletes pulled out.  I accepted the challenge and rode the course to gain experience.

Mont Orignal (CAN)

This was the first time I competed back to back.  Traveling from Ontario to Quebec, with one rest day (which was a travel day), I was fully immersed into the racing world.  My nerves were running high but I was pleased with my faster timed trials and growing confidence.

1 year prior, this exact race was my first sanctioned event, ranking 28 out of 29.  This time around, I was extremely proud of the advancements I had made in the previous 8 weeks.  The 2019 NorAm tour was finished and I was hooked on the adrenaline and progression.

Race #3&4 featured National team athletes from Germany to Japan to Australia.  I had been on snow nearly consecutively from November 2018 to "now". (My first and longest stint of training). My mind and body were wearing out and I could feel myself dragging on course.

Pitztal (AUT)

European Cups are a slightly higher level on competition compared to the NorAm level.  There are more riders and the courses are bigger.  I trained in Pitztal in 2018 and was not technically competent enough to compete.  I was excited with my result & eager to enter the 2020 NorAm season.
