On Holiday April 16, 2010 by Shelly Gotlieb (Snowboarder)

Hey Guys. So I’m outties, Goodbye Colorado it was fun. Im off for a wee holiday in Florida and New Orleans, thought I’d treat myself after such hard work all season hehe ;)

Breck spring time was super fun, slushy sunny days, hoodies and sunnie shredding – the best part of the season SPRING.

Sun comes = snow melts = fun pond skim :)

Chicken Jam Mammoth April 1, 2010 by Shelly Gotlieb (Snowboarder)

Hey Guys, after the US Open in Vermont I flew to Reno Nevada and dove the racy rental car down thru Carson City and then ended up in Mammoth Cali for the Roxy Chicken Jam in Cali.

Above: Natasha, Rana, Kelly, Linn, Susie, Spencer and me.

This comp is always a fun one, its the end of everyone’s season, its just girls and its mellow and fun. Kind of a great way to finish off. The jumps this year were way bigger and I was blown away at the level of the girls riding.

On the podium!

Hey, So I have finally had some time out of a plane and an airport to upload some pics from the US Burton Open.

It was such a great event, in all honesty I wasn’t riding to well for the practice days and didn’t think I could pull it together in the finals. I even crashed and cracked my helmet AGAIN on finals day and wasn’t going to compete.

another cracked helmet this season

But somehow I got it together when I needed to and landed my last run in finals and got 2nd WOWEEEE!!. 1st Sina Candrian and 3rd Jamie Anderson.
