#SkiCityShootout With James & Reuben #ForTheWin
G3 ambassadors Reuben Krabbe and James McSkimming headed south to Salt Lake City last month to hunt fresh pow an ski away with another notch on their belts; a 1st place finish in the #SkiCityShootout. Reuben peppered James with a few questions, but really it's just an excuse to share some of the jaw-dropping images with you. We saved the even better ones for the magazines, so keep an eye out next fall.
Reuben: So James, we won the Ski City (Salt Lake) Shootout. On the plane south were you expecting a win? What about on the night of the awards?
James: To be honest, I did think a win was likely. On the night of the awards I knew we had some great stuff, so I was feeling pretty confident, but without knowing what the other teams had been up to I couldn’t be certain.
Reuben: When were you the closest to taking the Avy probe out of your backpack and stabbing me in the neck?
James: Maybe during the multiple transitions to touring kit without ever actually using it, but violence is not the answer…
Reuben: Best beer you tasted while down in the US (or, did the scotch tub win. If so, explain)
James: It’s hard to keep track because I tried so many new ones (at 3% alcohol one can get through quite a few without taking a ditch nap) but I’d have to say some of the IPAs. The scotch tub is pretty hard to beat though, having a scotch in a hot tub…
Reuben: Which hill do you like skiing the most? Or, which would you prefer if it could have ideal conditions. Why?
James: I would like to ski Snowbird in better conditions because we had a pretty challenging weather day there. Solitude definitely took me by surprise with its awesome terrain.
Reuben: Where is your credit card?
James: I can tell you where it’s not…and that it’s been cancelled.
Reuben: Which ski were you riding?
James: G3 Empire Carbon 115 and next year’s Boundary 100.
Reuben: Want to come back for the competition next year?
James: You think I wouldn’t?!
