K2 Chill Big Mountain Competition

This weekend was the annual FWQ 2 star K2 Chill Big Mountain competition at Craigieburn in Canterbury. Format was 1 run each day over 2 days, combined to make your final score. Day 1 I skied technically well but choose a pussy line and skied it like even more of a pussy to sit ninth. Day 2 snow conditions deteriorated considerably so I kept the same line, staying with what I already knew. The ice threw me slightly off my line causing quite a spectacular crash - See below.
