Freeskier.com: Hey Bobby, where are you currently and what are you doing?
 
Bobby Brown: Yo Shay, hanging at home in Colorado. Packing for my trip with MSP to Alyeska.
 
FS: How was the Sammy Carlson Invitational? What was the overall vibe like?
 
BB: SCI was insane. The vibe was really mellow and everyone was just having a really good time. There was no stress or any pressure so it made for an awesome contest.
 
FS: How do you feel about the format versus something like a city big air where you get two jumps?
 
BB:The format was great. Like I said, just no stress and you could really feel it cause you were just taking hot laps with your friends.
 
FS: Who impressed you at the event and why?
 
BB: Henrik Harlaut absolutely killed it. He did a nose butter 10 off the knuckle and all sorts of wild stuff on the wall ride.
 
FS: Was it cool having a wall ride in a contest?
 
BB: I really liked having the wall in the contest because it just added more creativity. You had more options to show something new and creative.
 
 
FS: That being said, was it scary? That thing was huge.
 
BB: First hit I was freaking out. After a few hits it started to get more and more comfortable. It was huge.
 
FS: What else have you got on tap for the year? You've got to be getting ready for some down time?
 
BB: One more trip to AK then going to hangout in Denver for a while. Can't wait to take some time off and get a little refresh.
 
FS: Was the SCI a nice way to wind down the comp season?
 
BB: Yeah for sure. It was just a good fun time. No worries and just fun.
 
FS: You're almost 21, that must be exciting. Any big plans for it?
 
BB: Doing some fun things in Denver! You're coming right?
 
FS: Surely. What's something you're looking forward to this summer?
 
BB: I can't wait to go to Windells and get back to it. Hoping to have a progressive summer.
