Reid-ical

Not only is Charles Reid an amazing rider, but really down to earth and a respectful young man for only being a teenager. Reid started riding pipe just this season, but you wouldn't guess it. Reid's riding while in Laax and Saas Fee later in the trip made him look like he had been shredding pipe his whole life. Reid is a top Olympic hopeful for the host nation of Canada in the upcoming 2010 Winter Games. The pipe in Laax was really worked over, due to consecutive warm sunny weeks, but that didn't stop the kid. And the photo on the left is not a volcano erupting, even though we were convinced that was the case. (Matt Murray)
