Didn’t made it to Oslo for WSC, but whatever, had a super fun time riding in Russia , just came back from the tasting a new Olympic Half-Pipe in Sochi. I can say everything changed so much after I was there at “ Krasnaya Polyana” resort 5 years ago. New village “Rosa Khutor” , new lifts, new slopes looks really good and getting ready for next winter Olympic Games in 2014, but there is one thing that never change ,it is one of the best snow in the world and awesome freeride. Especially when all the snow was only for us, this resort right now is open only for sportsmen’s who came there for National Russian& European cup and World cup. We got fresh powder at the first day and sunny weather on the next day, then pipe trainings and competitions “Russian cup in Half-Pipe”, where I got 3d place. Our President of Russia even came to watch us. It was the best Half-Pipe we have ever had in Russia. I want to say Thanks to shaper from Park City, Tyson, who made it for us. Thanks!
Rosa Khutor resort
Awesome thing about the place where we were staying, that it was near by the “Black” sea and it is just 1 hour drive to the resort. We were chilling on the beach in the evening , was pretty warm + 14C and shredding pow in the morning .
