The AD crew (Tash, Steph, Myself) hit the road early on the morning of March 19th to have an awesome weekend at Wentworth. We get to Enfield, when Natasha realizes she left a whole bag of stuff at home... so we turn around and head back to Dartmouth to grab it. Sooner then you can imagine we're back on the road and already passing Enfield again... c'mon Wentworth!
We get to Wentworth and put on all of our gear, I'm rocking one of Natasha's jackets because I thought it would be a good idea to just not bring one.... typical Sarah decision right there. We hike up the park to talk to Rob (the owner of Entity) because he's hosting Park Rats an all guys competition that day. We're going to help him tear down at 2pm, so we hit the slopes in the meantime! I end up doing one run and feeling horrible, so I go inside. I end up passing out in the lodge for the day, Natasha hitting me didn't even wake me up. This makes me realize I'm getting sick which I'm not too stoked about. Steph and Tash had an awesome day shredding though and before you know it we're helping tear down tents and watching the awards ceremony.
We then head to the hotel we're staying at down the road and get all cozy. Once we're all changed, we head to Truro for some Swiss Chalet and Giant Tiger. Giant Tiger is the best store ever, hands down. Swiss Chalet is also pretty delicious. After our Truro adventures, we head to JP's cottage in the middle of nowhere. We go down many dirt roads and get lost because the GPS told us too. We finally arrive and are greeted by familiar faces and lots of food. Too bad we're stuffed from the Swiss Chalet ;)
We hang out there for a bit and Steph goes on a 4wheeler ride. We then head to see Rob and sort out all of the prizes for Get Railed the next day!
Luckily the cottage we are trying to find this time is not as difficult. We are greeted by the guys lighting off fireworks and talking about bacon. The prize sorting starts, with me in charge. For any of you who have never sorted prizes before, it is probably one of the most stressful things I have ever done! Once I got a system going it got a lot easier, but still. It stressed me out.
Soon it's time to head back to the hotel and get a good nights rest. I'm pretty sure that once everyone's head hit the pillow, we were out.
The morning comes, we grab our stuff and load it into the Outback. Natasha and Steph start setting up the park while I head inside to do registration.
We had 10 snowboarders and 5 skiers register. Girls WHERE WERE YOU AT! And why were you not at Wentworth getting your shred on?!
The clinic gets underway and we see the girls start learning some new tricks for the afternoon's contest! We see front and back 1's, some 3's, lots of different slides on the boxes from the snowboarders. On the skier side of things we see some grabs a few spins and some side slides!
Lunch time is next, I of course head into Wentworth's lodge and get a panini, my favorite thing to get there. This time I got a club panini, it was pretty tasty!
Competition time comes before we know it and the girls including Steph and Myself are hiking up the park with our game faces on. Everyone's riding super well and the stoke meter is bursting. The competition pushes everyone to try new tricks or lock in ones they've been working on. This is my favorite part of the day, you get to see just how much each girl has progressed!
Soon the judges are telling everyone last run and everyone's scrambling to land that one last sick run that could put them in or below the top 3. The heat is on.
We all meet on the deck for pizza and snacks while the prizes are getting sorted and organized. Jere's how the placings went:
1. Christina R
2. Livy F
3. Nikki M
1. Amy C
2. Emma S
1. Stephanie M
2. Sarah P
3. Dallas R
I'll be writing again soon to tell everyone about the last days of shredding, a few comps I was in and some stuff to look out for this summer!
