Exactly 12 weeks after my injury I finally got to head out skiing again and this time it was to the SIGB Ski Test in Kuhtai, Austria. I was out there testing next seasons park and pipe skis for the Daily Telegraph Ski and Board mag who are a great crowd! With lots of the British ski industry also at the ski test, the week felt more like a ski holiday and was good to catch up with some old friends as well as meet lots of new people.

My trip to the USA started really well this season. I picked up where I left off in the summer and was feeling really strong in pipe. We rode Copper mountain most days and the GB set up was really sick this year so everything was going well and I had another really progressive 10 days. Here's a couple of screenshots from the pipe....

November has seen the release of 'Half Way Home' the 2013 Unity Productions feature. Im stoked to have a section again, filmed in New Zealand with Iona Fulton in August and in Innsbruck at the end of April last season with Rob Embling; Unity's CEO. The crew have killed it again this year and for me the stand outs are the opening dryslope section and the closing urban section. Take a look...

After a month back at home I was lucky enough to be on another trip for some pre-season skiing in Saas Fee. There was a big crew of us, including a few people I hadn't seen in a while so was good to catch up with them. It was a really progressive trip and I made some good progress on a couple of new tricks I have been working on since the summer. We were lucky with the weather, getting 8 days riding which was perfect. I also had a really sick session on the airbag out there, which the Swiss team let us use for a day. Thanks guys!....

Last week I had a media day in Manchester with the rest of the British Ski and Snowboard teams. I did interviews with BBC Look North, Channel 4 news and the Sunday Times and it was cool to recognition from the mainstream media. Heres pic from the photo shoot:

Last weekend I competed in The North Face Freeski Open up at Cardrona . It was a fun comp, way less intense than the Winter Games and the weather was sick. I decided to change up my run for this one, dropping in on the other side, to start on my right 9 and cutting my run down to 5 hits. I scored a 67.75 on my first run and then, sending it way bigger on my second run, I scored a 77.25 to take me through to the finals in 6th! Top 8 went through to meet 6 pre qualified riders.

Last weekend I competed in the NZ Winter Games. I had been building up to this comp for the whole trip and I was really on it in practice, going on to stomp both my runs in the comp. Its the first of four World Cups in the run up to the Olympics in February. It was a fun event with loads of my friends riding so it was a good atmosphere in qualys.
