Big Air at Fenway, Boston
Just got back to the states after a great n’ mellow week at home in Sweden. I’ve returned for the Big Air at Fenway arena in Boston! They’ve built a massive scaffolding jump that’s 140 ft / 43 m tall which is inside the legendary Baseball arena of Red Sox – Fenway (built 1912).
So far we’ve had one night of practice and we only got to hit the jumps a few times during 1,5 hrs. It was pretty bumpy, but the jump was way better than I expected. The trannies are fast but not to hard to handle. Tomorrow we’ll get another 3 runs or so as a warm up before the quali’s start, so hopefully that will be enough time to get ready. 6 out of 12 girls will make it through to the finals.
This is the first scaffolding jump that I’ve ever hit, so it was pretty scary to drop in for the first time. If you want to check it out and maybe get a hint of how it feels, watch this POV footy on my Facebook page.
Schedule, Friday 12/2 (EST time):
9:55-12:50 Men’s Ski Qualification (Best of 2 runs)
14:00-14:50 Ladies’ Ski Qualification (Best of 2 runs)
20:00-21:27 Men’s and Ladies’ Ski Finals (Best 2 of 3 runs)
The jump from the side. It’s not to big, maybe around 18 meters and has a mellow take off that’s not to poppy. I hope that the inrun and the landing stays pretty smooth, because I have a feeling it’s going to be very bumpy!
The entrance of the Memorial Hall. Pretty cool building!
Stay tuned for more updates!
