When it rains it pours. Well it wasn’t really pouring, but it definitely was raining on and off at Day 3 of Ms. Superpark presented by Gatorade at Squaw Valley and the girls were still poring over the rail section, getting shots despite the less than optimal weather conditions. Ok, maybe that was a bad attempt at being clever but it was cool to see the ladies sticking it out in the flat light and variable conditions, hungry to get more shots under their belt.
Because of the wind and the poor visibility, the focus was on the rail/wallride section of the park created by SPT. Besides the lovely artwork in the snow created by some of the riders, Gatorade was poured in lines through transitions so that they could make out the terrain a little easier. Leanne Pelosi pulled off some good looking handplants on the quarterpipe, Ms. Superpark 1st timer Kelly Underwood was still putting down solid lines in the wallride section, and Erin Comstock was getting some good looking stalls and rock-to-fakies on one of the wallrides.
Later in the session with things winding down, Desiree Melancon brought up the idea of building a sort of hip/step-up over the stairset and landing on the transition behind one of the wallrides, making it about a 30-foot gap. Kjersti Buaas and Tosh.0 superstar, Darrah Reid-McLean, decided to stay back to hit it. The first couple tries were nail biters due to the high consequences of not clearing that gap… but after they figured out the speed it was on. The highlight was definitely Kjersti’s lofty Japan.
We’ll see how the rest of the week plays out at Ms Superpark, weather isn’t looking too great for Thursday so we may result to using Friday as a weather day since the girls are still itching to get some more riding in. Stay tuned.
