Big Air #1
Blake Kiedrowski puts on a show
Starting off the new year with a mysterious fog and some slick tracks, the Ford Built Tough Series had it's first competition at Wisp... the Big Air. This was the first of a four event Big Air Series, and despite a little gloomy weather the competition was there in full force, grinning smiles and all.

With a soft landing off of the main mound that was sweet for trying new tricks, the skiers and boarders put their best edge forward and headed for those clouds in the sky. The mushy landing pad did make it tougher to stick a solid landing, but everyone pulled it off quite well anyway. Hey, these guys (and gal) are good - no kidding.

The Expert Table Top at the Savage II Terrain Park set the stage where skiers and boarders pulled out all of the stops for big points. Check out the results for the skinny on who finished what, but we do want to mention that there was only one woman competitor out there. So ladies, come on out and compete to form your own division!
