The Run Around crew brings us one more edit from Jackson before they head north to Pemberton, B.C. StokeLab checked in with Corey Felton just after they crossed the border -- yeah, they made it. StokeLab: What up Corey? How would you summarize the Run Around's season so far?
Corey Felton: It’s been an interesting one so far. Things came together really well for us at the beginning of the season, and then Taylor got hurt and the snow turned off somewhat in Jackson. However, we have made the best of it and started to find some new zones with Rob LaPiere and Trevor Thomas.
SL: So you guys just left Jackson for Pemberton, B.C. -- what's your program the next few weeks?
CF: We will be here for upwards of a month. We are heading out with Elyse Saugstad, and then Topher Plimpton and Cody Townsend will be showing up here in the next week.
SL: Tell us about the terrain in Pemberton. How's the snow looking up there?
CF: This place is amazing. You definitely need to know how to ride a sled, and if you can the terrain is endless. The snow has been pretty good. It’s starting to turn to spring so it is a little crappy down low, but the snow's been good up high.
SL: You guys are getting rowdy on the sleds - what is sketchier - the slednecking or the skiing?
CF: Both can be a little dicey. It’s fun to scare yourself on both. For me, riding sleds is just as much fun as skiing. It’s good to scare yourself on a sled because it makes you a better rider, and you can access deeper terrain.
SL: How about a shout-out to Taylor? Any words of support?
CF: Taylor has been making the best of his situation; he’s doing therapy like crazy and acupuncture as well. He will be back, but I think it’s good that he is taking time off, because this is the type of injury that will never heal unless you stop all physical activity. He has had back problems ever since he broke his L3 in the pipe in ’05, so now he is giving himself a chance to fully heal.
SL: Heal up fast Taylor. Thanks Corey -- tear it up in B.C. -- we look forward to the next episode.
