WX 09 is in the books and have to say it went off pretty good. With FUSE, you can make something out of a damn frozen puddle. This said, we had just enough prime Buttermilk real estate to pull off some good lines. Yelling directions to a cat driver that has 15 minutes to rough out your park only goes so far. Luckily we got a skid steer in there to rough it a little better; it came down to a lot of hand work and even a chain saw to cut in some set-up flat for the jump. The boxes ended up pretty sweet and everyone seemed to at least give em a try. The slant box and extension were rad but only good when the in-run was completely buffed out. The flat deckers, particularly Alan Gerlach were definitely feeling the extension and making it through the slop. Temperatures hovered at barely freezing and there was a few inches every morning waiting to be pushed away by the hungover digger crew.
Standout riding moments were some big pops/kf over the jump, 50s, frnt. lip, and back crook on the long down box, and random old school crazy shit…finger flips, hand plants, bonelesses. lots of wipes, especially going over the slant box at the bottom. With 3 rows of crash fencing, no one got hurt. Actually it was a miracle nobody got hurt. it was packed the whole time with crazies. Take that back, one kid did get a smashed finger pretty good…looked like he stuck his finger in a plumb.
