Carpet Burn Cup – Rails Comp

28 Mar

Wednesday 7th March saw the latest instalment of the Carpet Burn Cup with an awesome rails course set out by Nicol and Kris. Everyone had been looking forward to this event and the practice that had been put in in the weeks leading up to it certainly paid off with some amazing tricks being thrown down.

First up on the course was the mailbox, fast becoming a favourite here at the slope, quickly followed by the barrel and then onto the box or the trickier red rail. Everyone had two goes to put down their best line and it was great to see some of the older kids incorporating the permanent rainbow rail into their runs.

In the 11 – 15yr male snowboarders Andy Foote made his first appearance in the series putting up a good challenge to current leader Nathan Sim; these two were so close the judges called a battle for first place which resulted in Nathan just pipping Andy to the top spot. While the younger skiers shied away from the mailbox they were loving the barrel with some even getting some air over it!

It was a great night all round with all categories remaining closely contested. We are now past the half-way point in the series and it’s getting even harder to figure out who’ll be crowned the CBC Champion of 2012. Latest leader board results are available on our website.

Next event is the Bumps on April 25th so chill out and relax over the Easter holidays, maybe come along for some sneaky practice through the moguls…!
