Hey Hey Hey!!!

So, the New Zealand Open just finished up this weekend… the slope-style course was super fun!!! I started off in Women’s slope qualifiers on Wednesday, but after our first runs they closed the course due to 0 visibility and rescheduled it to Friday before Semi’s & Finals. After both runs, I took 2nd in qualifiers and went on to Semi’s…

Women’s Semi’s was good, after our runs I placed 7th which got me into finals… Soooo exciting!!! Weather held out pretty good for the majority of the day,but did get a little windy for the finals… Luckily, I landed my first run clean – my legs couldn’t hold me for the next two runs lol… I literally snowboarded that day from 8 – 4, with a 2 hour break for lunch when guys took their runs. Pretty beat afterwards… but I was super excited to hear I got 4th place. Here are the results for the top 6.

Slopestyle Final Women
1 Jamie Anderson USA
2 Janna Weatherby USA
3 Shelly Gotlieb NZL
4 Joanna Dzierzawski USA
5 Silvia Mittermueller GER
6 Hana Beaman USA

Unfortunately, I’m leaving NZ this week but can’t wait to come back next season… =). It was an awesome experience and a huge boost of confidence for this upcoming winter! … For now, back to relaxing in the sun and enjoying the rest of summer!
