Like I've spoken about in previous blogs, everyone loves a new crash reel and I thought that, with another one sitting in front of me, I should share it with the world.The TTR is known the world over but with these compeitions comes slams and injuries. The events on the TTR calendar are no exception and they've decided to share the painful mememories with the world. So here we go, no frilly text, no building up, just some good honest slams. Shame they don't show the full slam from Seb Toots....

We did it! We did it! We did it, yeah! We have a Dora
inspired celebration theme song to end the 14 days of straight product thumping
at both OR and SIA (with pre and post events) that we’ve just survived. This
theme, which rings in our minds over and over, might have something to do Biglines Crew SIA 2011with
the 25 episodes of the wonderful kids show (with the worst audio ever) that we
downloaded to Tim’s iPhone.

It's 10pm and I'm in a cheap (figuratively and not literally) hotel bed in Denver. I'm trying to coax an ounce of creativity for this blog I'm supposedly keeping. My laptop has been staring ominously at me for a couple hours but I'm not in the mood and I really don't want my first entry being about what has been the hardest 24 hours of our month long road trip.

The family adventures continues..Yesterday we checked in at the Cliff Lodge in Snowbird, Utah after two days of driving. But I have to say that it was hard to leave Golden. Last week the snowstorm of the decade hit the Selkirk's and Golden, BC. Kicking Horse Mountain Resort -Stairway to Heaven lift: Tim and Jess
We just finished 7 days of filming with Sherpa Cinema.
During the week-long shoot we had 94 cms of snowfall...wow! Though it
made for some great turns, that much snow did limit the terrain we could
go into. Hence we spent a lot of time in the trees. Good thing Island
Lake Catskiing has a ton of perfectly gladed trees. The Sherpas
worked their magic on the much anticipated wire cam line. Though

Summing up 4 days of skiing in Revelstoke. It's been awesome and everybody is exhausted from the powder. Conditions these four days have been amazing and I have really gotten to test out and fall in love with my new Rossignol S110. They are simply made for this resort.

Left Golden yesterday afternoon and rolled in to a snowcovered Revelstoke. This is our first stop on long and interesting adventure, skiing and doing business with the whole family. It feels like we are off to a great start with a heavy snowfall warning for Revelstoke. The hill reported 30 cm in the last 12 hours and the fore cast is for 10 - 15 cm today. We are staying at beautiful Nelsen Lodge at the base of the gondola, couldn't be any better.
