Dew Tour in Snowbasin
februari 11, 2012 i Nowhere n' everywhere
I’ve now arrived to Snowbasin. I drove here from Breckenridge together with Niklas, Nina and Eveline. Or I didn’t drive that much as I am to young to rent a car in the states, but at least I got a ride with them. It took us nearly 9 hours to get here, and it was such a long ride. Believe me when I say that it was awesome to check in to the hotel and just lay down in the bed for a while.
Yesterday we had our first day up at the mountain and we’d practice in the course all day, 08:00-16:00. The course was good and fun, and we’d also some training this afternoon. I nearly got my run so hopefully it will be good! Tomorrow it’s time for semi-finals for us girls and we’ll have to be up at the mountain at 08:00 for practice. Competition is between 09:00-10:00 (17:00-18:00 CET) and I think there will be live results on allisport.com. You can check out the course here with the Völkl teamrider Nick Goepper:
In the morning on the first day we went through the course, and here we are at the last jump.

To get up to the top you’ll need to take a Gondola all the way to the top, and one run takes around 20 minutes. So you don’t get out so much out of training if you want to take laps… But tomorrow at competition we’ll have sleds (snowmobiles), so that’s really good
Me at the third rail feature. This is the one that will be the hardest for me.
And here is some pic’s from the roadtrip:
The change in the landscape is dramatical when you drive from Colorado to Utah. First it is mountains, then comes kind of a desert with strange mountains and then there is more mountains when you get closer to Ogden.
As I said it is strange mountains, but they are so cool to watch.
Über nice mountains when we drove pass Salt Lake City (about 1 hour from where we stay in Ogden).
Now I will take a shower and then watch some series – ultra mega chill time to get into the right mode for tomorrow. Tomorrow is competition day and I’m stoked – so which me luck! Take care people, cheersTweet
