X Games

 This past weekend in Aspen Colorado, Winter X Games 16 went off with a bang. I wanted to bring you all up-to-date on my first ever X Games experience. This was my first time ever competing in such a high caliber event. It was a amazing to finally experience the X Games from a competitors point of view. My life long dream as a kid has been to compete in the X Games and it finally came true! And even better, I got my first silver medal! I competed in slopestyle on Thursday and ended up coming in second place! It had to be one fo the best days of my life. X Games is like no other competition because of all the extra media and hype surrounding it. The atmosphere was electric the whole time.

It was an uplifting feeling to finally stand on the podium at the biggest event of the year. Now that things have settled down a little bit, I have retreated back to Breckenridge Colorado to keep skiing until the next contest. The next adventure will be the third and final stop of the Dew Tour in Snowbasin, Utah. I can't wait until then!
