2009 Freestyle Skiing World Cup
The reason we bought the trailer, or at least a large motivating factor, was the fact that I am spending the week in Vancouver living in it. I volunteered for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, and in the meantime, I was given the opportunity to volunteer as a ski patroller for the 2009 World Cup Freestyle at Cypress Mountain in Vancouver. There are three events that are a part of the freestyle skiing discipline -- ski cross, moguls, and the aerials. The photo at left was taken tonight at the men's aerials qualifications, where the field of 37 athletes was narrowed to the top 12 who will go on to compete in the final (which is either Friday or Saturday -- I can't recall). Anyway, if you see this on TV, keep an eye out for me!
