Im gonna have to say that last week in Oslo, Norway was the most fun snowboard trip I’ve been on. All the traveling was well worth the 9 days I got to spend with some of my best friends cruising the town of Oslo, riding an amazing halfpipe, sending a deadly quarterpipe, partying, raging at concerts, and paying 15 dollars a piece for drinks. However, halfway through the week I discovered that the eager women will actually pay for your drinks if you ask them. Winning.
Walking around we saw alot of pretty cool graffiti.
Guiness and Irish Coffee with Broc and Greg to stay warm.
Greg and I getting ready for QP practice.
The QP was held at Holmenkollen just outside of Oslo, pretty insane drop in. Terje obviously wants somebody to go 10 meters.
QP view from the top. By the end of the night the arena pretty much filled up. It was a cool feeling dropping into that 10 meter wall with thousands of people screaming at you.
Got to meet and have dinner with the mayor of Oslo, Fabian Stang, at city hall. What a bad ass name.And a party house it was. Sometimes its hard to remember that you’re in Oslo to snowboard when the contest throws a concert party every other night. This place was huge and probably held at least a thousand people on some nights. Got to watch Greg get a beer poured over his head after denying some girl a dance. Don’t worry, he got her back.
Really sick shot of the pipe on finals night. One of the best halfpipes I’ve ever ridden so I sent it as big as a could and ended up in 2nd place!
Podium with I-Pod and Louie. After chugging half my bottle of champagne I made sure to pour the rest on I-Pods head.
Fast forward 6 hours and you’ll see Greg, Driscoll, and I feeling like models on the red carpet. This was about an hour before my cab to the airport. Still covered in champagne, I made it on the right flight and ended up back in Denver.
