Fenway Park, Boston

On Tuesday we arrived in Boston for the Big Air competition at Fenway Park. For those of you who don´t know, Fenway Park is a baseball park. And since 1912, it has been the home of the Boston Red Sox, who have won eight World Series championships. Which means, they´re pretty damn good!

Yesterday we registered and had the first look at jump. Training was divided into 6 groups so we went a bit early to check out the snowboarders. We were the first group of skiers to hit the jump, and it´s my first time to ever hit a scaffold jump. I must admit, It was pretty scary to walk up all those stairs. The scaffold is 42 m high from where we drop in, and the in run is really steep and bumpy. We only got like 6 hits each, and qualifiers is happening on Friday already. Training went pretty well, but I wish we had more time on the jump. We also get 45 minutes training before qualifiers on Friday, so I guess we`ll get a few jumps in then as well.

Today we´re having the day off while the snowboarders are competing, so I think we´re gonna go explore Boston. Do you have any recommendations on what´s worth seeing?
