The Chase Begins for First Turns of the 2018/19 Season

There’s something ever so satisfying about nabbing the first turns of the season. Claiming that title is always a game of he said, she said, but thanks to social media it appears some actually took advantage of the early winter storms we’ve been getting here in the west.

Scrubbing Instagram this morning, here's what caught our eye.

Teton Brown’s Double Backflip Attempt into Corbet’s

Teton Brown’s Double Backflip Attempt into Corbet’s

If first you don’t succeed at a double backflip into Corbet’s, try, try again. Despite exploding from his first attempt, Tristan “Teton” Brown went for it again.

Haunted from being unable to stomp either attempt at the trick last year, the double backie remains to be Brown's greatest arch-nemesis.
