In case you're not up to date on the chronicles of Dustin Craven, here's a little recap: He's trying to make the Canadian Olympic team, and as with all other North Americans trying to make the US and Canadian teams, Dustin was in Copper Mountain, Colorado for the US Snowboarding Grand Prix Olympic Qualifier last week. Copper hasn't received the most snow - but sure did an amazing job building this mega halfpipe and
hosting what was an amazing first contest of the season. Dustin crushed it early on as the top Canadian and landed 5th overall in qualifiers. I could
sense some nerves before his first run but the fact of the matter is, it takes serious balls and drive to do what he is doing. You
can get seriously hurt in a 22 foot pipe, especially when the competition is that
fierce. But, Dustin is doing it, and going about it in his own way. He is not technically on the Canadian national team, and while most of the serious contenders there have coaches,agents, personal trainers, and wax techs, Dustin has his Quiver
Killer and cigs. That's it. I personally saw pre-run neck rubs and pump up sessions before some rider's runs, while Dustin was on his own
program eating free tacos and talking to girls. As serious of contest this was, Dustin still took the time to take the lift up after his first run with a
little 6 year old who happens to be his biggest fan. Pretty classy...! In the end, Dustin ended up in 15th place due to a couple falls in the
finals but has shown that he's a contender. Follow along the next few contests to see what the future holds for Dirty D. The kid is just awesome and hopefully in about 3 months the whole world will see him on display.

Baker opened yesterday (nov 12th), with a mellow 72" base. POW WOW WOW! Lots of folks in attendance = tracked out pretty fast, but c'mon soft ass snow for opening day, some pow slashes - good times all around. Above - TJ Schneider with a sweet ollie in the good ol banked slalom/natural halftube/fun snake run zone! Not a bad way to start the season, is it..?
