After my last minute trip to Alaska, I hopped on the overnight flight, they call it the Red Eye down to Denver, then I took a 21 minute flight to Aspen, don't think I have ever been on such a short flight, however the snowstorm delayed the take off 1o hours, haha. So not the fastest way of getting there in the end! Still cool to fly into such a tiny airport. I was mega excited to catch the last 3 days of the Red Bull performance camp on the 18th,19th,20th.
Tiny wee plane into Aspen. One of the top 10 most extreme airports in the world, due to the altitude, and the topography of the land! I found it pretty mellow however wouldn't want to fly in there during a rocky mountain snow storm.
Our own private set up at Buttermilk, a huge thanks to the mountain and Red Bull for the insane set up and the sled laps. I had a blast on the camp, I don't think I have ever done so many runs in 3 days, the ideal set up for progression, with such a positive and motivated crew.
Below are a few snap shots...
Wee snap shot from Zach Hooper of me in Action!
