Unfortunately for everyone involved in the contest, the mountains got rained on, then frozen solid. The avalanche danger was also high on the first day of the contest, so a group decision was made to not have a judged freestyle event. In keeping in the original theme of the freestyle day, which was to have riders showcase their freestyle skills on natural terrain, they decided have a jam session on a natural feature. The jump was made and all things considered -- with the snow pack, icy conditions and approaching weather -- it worked out well. Everyone had a good time, at least. (Camilla Stoddart )
