After two great weeks in New Zealand, Elias and I travelled to Jindabyne, Australia. Jindabyne is a town close to the two ski resorts Perisher and Thredbo. In the first week there we spent our time skiing the snowpark of Perisher. The had a triple jump line there and a lot of rails next to the jumps. The lift is pretty fast and short, like that you can do a lot of runs everyday. We had some days with really nice and warm weather and the snow got pretty slushy.
In the second week the One Hit Wonder AFP Gold Big Air was on at Thredbo. Unfortunately it rained on the first three days and we were not able to jump the massiv 95 feet jump. But at the end of the week the weather got better and on friday the big air competition was on. After some warmup jumps I started to feel more and more comfortable. In the final round I did a switch double misty 12 safety grab and ended up in 4th place.
After the One Hit Wonder our trip had come to an end and we travelled back to Switzerland. It was a great way to start the season and I'm excited for more skiing!
