    Indeed! If Sisson's ski stayed on, it would have been close. And that is not in any way to detract from BMM's win. He was ON with consistent quality MOGULskiing(.net ) and that my friends is what it should be all about. Patrick Torsell is a humble, stand-up guy. I rode several chairs with him and he is simply pleasant to be around. He drove all the way down from Waitsfield to support our little comp and in my mind that made him a winner anyway. Congrats again BMM. Finally a win for an AZer, even if we had to import him from 4 hours north.

    So, anyways, good time once again. Props to the park crew, though not mogul skiers were plenty willing to try, and listened to try to learn what we were looking for. Good finally meeting BMM. Congrats MQ, and mini MQ. And I'll always have a 2knees-shaped pole to remember this comp by...

    I'll get you someday, punk.

    So a noteworthy occurrence though not by an AZer, Sisson is one of the guys that came down from K. The guy rips. Announced before the final that he was going big, and went with speed on the top. Goes huge off the kicker, spins, but one of his skis doesn't come with him. Falls hard on a bump past the landing zone. Thankfully he was fine, but that was a brief moment of "whoa...holy crap!...phew"

    Oh, absolutely. He also gave each competitor line choice. didn't get a chance to chat with him, but also seemed like a great guy. Always glad to have guys like him and all the other K rippers come down to our little hill.

    One of these days, I'm going to learn how to jump. I swear. It's a good thing my turns were working, otherwise I'd have had no chance! Felt bad about Sisson's mystery ejection mid-air. Not sure what happened. I think it would have been real close... his airs definitely beat my dumper spread that I threw about 35 times today

    I had a great time today. Thanks to all for the congrats and kind words.

    Great meeting everyone! Had some great lift conversations, and had lots of fun ripping Sundown. I'm looking forward to coming back, and will definitely try to make the spring comp.

    Also have to add that Chris Sullivan is a fantastic human being, and runs a great ski hill. Fun to talk to, knowledgeable, and just an all-around good guy. And Jarrod's awesome as well. Cool place, great atmosphere. A lot of small/medium ski areas could learn from the Sundown operations model. I saw a lot of happy people skiing at Sundown, and a ton of kids/families lovin' the low-angle freshly seeded bumps. Great stuff.


    Looking forward to the video... hope my dumper spread looks a little better in motion than in still
