After a diagonal downpour of rain, Thursday turned into a weather day… pushing back our last day of Ms Superpark presented by Gatorade at Squaw Valley. Thankfully our luck turned around with nothing but sunshine on Friday. Some of the riders had already left, not planning on needing the extra day, but the ones who stuck around definitely made the most out of the last day on hill.
With better conditions and visibility more of the ladies were inclined to hit the gap over the stairset that had been built on Wednesday. Desiree Melancon, Bryn Valaika, and Erin Comstock all had some good looking methods over the gap. Kelly Underwood and Desiree had a double line with Kelly getting a solid front board on the down rail while Desiree aired over her. Then Erin Comstock, Hana Beaman, and Colleen Quigley pulled off a triple line with Colleen airing over Erin and Hana while they were on the stair set.
While all that was going on over at the rail section, a few of the ladies took to the jump line. Iris Lazzareschi happened to make an appearance on this final day and looked like she had been sessioning the park all week, throwing front 5’s and 7’s. Erin Comstock had her bases covered with fluid switch back 1’s and front 3’s and 5’s. Isabel Derungs and Sarka Pancochova also threw some back 7’s into the mix.
Considering the interesting snow year and variable conditions throughout the week the ladies of Ms. Superpark definitely made the most out of what was put in front of them. Getting creative with the features by hitting them in ways they weren’t meant to be hit and many of the girls riding from early morning into sunset sessions. One girl however really proved herself over the past week earning herself the Ms. Superpark Standout and Gatorade “Driven From Within” award. Kjersti Buaas sessioned all the sections of the park, many times guinea pigging the features, consistently rode well, and stayed on hill from first to last chair… making her the obvious choice for the award selected by the SNOWBOARDER Magazine staff.
Big thanks to Gatorade, Squaw Valley, Jess Richitelli, Mike Bettera and the SPT park crew, and all the ladies for putting in a solid four days of riding. Until next year, and stay tuned for coverage from Men’s Superpark coming to you next week.
