oh hey check out me and my medals!
regionals in west virginia was an absolute blast. while it was strange to travel 8 hours away towards the SOUTH to go snowboarding, the mountain wasn’t bad and the snow was actually pretty decent.
friday was gs, but half the day was spent in the lodge because there was lightning. we had a dance party to pass the time and ended up being able to get one race run each (usually it’s combined time of two runs). saturday was slopestyle which is always fun, though it was freezing cold and windy. i love competing in slopestyle even though i’m not that good because i’ll try features i probably wouldn’t hit otherwise.
overall, our women’s snowboard team did pretty well. we had two girls place individually, one got 2nd in slopestyle and the other got 2nd in gs. overall, our team placed 3rd for gs and i’m sure we also placed in slopestyle but we’re still waiting to hear the team results for that. we did get first in our individual conference for slopestyle for the season. based on how we did there’s a chance we could get funding from our school to go to nationals which would be absolutely nuts.
it was also just a blast to hang out with my team for four days and bond like crazy.. not that we aren’t tight already. plus it was great meeting and hanging out with teams from other conferences. basically, i love snowboarding team.
