Christmas break then back out west!

These last two weeks have been pretty crazy. After the Winter Dew Tour in Breckenridge I headed back home for the holidays. Being home was great! I got to see my family and hang out with my homies but most of all I got to shred the home mountain Perfect North! i got some cool stuff for Christmas as well. The contents of my stocking included some Skullcandy Skullcrusher Headphones (On the left!), some sick hoodies and some sick running shoes!

Heres a little edit of the Perfects crew of December break.

On new years I participated in the Perfect North New Years Eve Rail Jam. I ended up getting 2nd place! I won 50 bucks so I was pretty stoked!

Following New Years I was on my way back out to Mt. Hood Oregon. Windells is now going to be my permanent residence this winter I found out which is good news! The campus at Windells is the "Funnest". There is so much to do there...BOB the skatepark, trampolines, video games, and lots of other stuff. Lately in my down time Ive picked up a strong interest in scootering, as gay as it might sound, its so much fun! Skiing at Mount Hood has also been pretty good lately minus the bad weather but we make the best of it!

We are heading to the Big Bear stop of the Gaterade Free Flow Tour tomorrow so another update will be soon to come from Big Bear California.

Check back!

First Time Post: Mount Hood!

Hello everyone! Nick Goepper here and this is my first time posting on this blog so i'm going to keep it short and sweet. My latest adventure throughout the month of December has been through Mt Hood Oregon and Breckenridge Colorado. I trained at Windells camp in Mt Hood for a week and a half before heading to Breckenridge for the first stop on the Winter Dew Tour.

This was my Canadian roommate I stayed with at Windells Mike Mochan. We had a lot of fun!

Here is me at the base lodge of Mt Hood Meadows resort. they had a real sick park and I learned a lot! Big ups to Mike Hanley for coaching me!

So off to Breckenridge! The drive from Windells to Breck was long and grueling.... Lots of boring van talk and fast food was to be had. We did make a couple pitstops worth while though.We got to see Mt St. Helans from a distance and stopped to see Jossi Wells and his family in Breckenridge! It was fun to meet one of my role models!

I ended up having an amazing experience at Dew Tour! I suffered a concussion 2 days before the competition but I landed my run in qualifiers and placed 20th of 50 riders! Unfortunately they only qualified 10 riders but I was still satisfied! Im back home now but heading back out to Windells on the 4th. More updates coming soon! Check back for more!
