As the summer season on the Whistler Blackcomb glacier comes to an end, Gus Kenworthy wanted to wrap it up with something to remember. On Tuesday, July 24, Kenworthy landed a new, never-been-done-before trick at Momentum Ski Camps on the Whistler Blackcomb glacier. The trick was a variation of a double flip off of a rail, which Kenworthy admitted he didn't even really know the name for.
"I guess it would be considered an inward double rodeo 990 off a rail," Kenworthy said. The trick is the second double flip ever landed off of a rail -- the first was a double misty that Kenworthy landed off of an up rail on the Whistler glacier almost a year ago. The two doubles are still the only two landed doubles off a rail to date, both by Kenworthy.
