‘Billabong Flaunt It’ poduim finish in Banff, Canada!! February 17, 2010 by Christy Prior (Snowboarder)

So- I made it to Banff, Alberta in Canada and wow what a place!!  The vibe is like a mix somewhere between Wanaka (NZ) and Queenstown (NZ) and I LOVE IT!! People are amazing, surroundings are breath taking and the mountains definitely hold there own that’s for sure!!

Had my first comp last week which was the Norquay rail jam that runs throughout the season which was my first win  but last Saturday the 13th we had the Billabong Flaunt it ALL GIRLS tour come right to our door step again at Mt Norquay and here are some pic’s courtesy of photographers Katherine Calnan and Jan Davies……

Weather prevailed nicely and the snow and cloud predicted kindly gave way to a HOT, sunny day!!  No matter what happened it was going to be a great day!!

Billabong Flaunt It consists of a slopestyle and a rail jam all in one day and is one of the funnest events I’ve done yet- I just love jam format (can have as many runs as you like in a certain amount of time, best run wins)

Check out the rest of the pics below…

Us ladies scoping out the course from the chair lift…

A wee switch board slide-check out hot pink bibs!

All competitors got our own V.I.P lift line…. yeah thats what I’m talking about!  Comes in handy on the family day public hoilday weekend here in Alberta.

Back 360 nose snatcher!

Such a wicked turn out of ladies, believe we had a grand total of 28! Was so good to see so many of us destoryn the park at the same time…. with pink bibs on… haha.

I’ve never had so much fun on one box before – it was the best!  Switch tail slide switch up to front nose slide…

I say it in a good way it was like a beautiful spring day but man was it hot hiking in the rail jam!!!

Front 360 indy…

Front 180 switch 50 back 180 out! This box was seriously asking for us to empty our hole bag of tricks out on it… so we did.

Rail jam podium finish… cash, money, money!!

(and yes I do get asked by EVERYBODY why I rep the usa so much…. then I have to explain to them that it stands for Underground Skate -only the coolest skate/surf/snowboard shop in the world!!)
