Tignes World Cup

After a great 2,5 months in the US and ending the trip with a amazing result (9th) in the Grand Prix in Mammoth (read the article here sorry it’s in dutch!) It was time to head home. After spending a little less then 2 weeks at home I hopped on a airplane to France.

I spend one week in Meribel 3 Vallees hoping to get some Halfpipe training in before going over to Tignes for the SFR Halfpipe World Cup. Unfortunately the weather wasn’t on my side and I ended up only being able to ski pipe for 2 days. But the guys from the DC Area 43 park were very nice, they even kept the halfpipe closed to public on the two days!

Finally the weather cleared up and I got to ride this amazing halfpipe!

Then it was time to go to Tignes.

Got to meet up with my friend Laila for registration! Due to some mixed up schedules and some delay registration was all jokes and giggles!

Me and Sabrina at our first training!

Lots of fun skiing with all these amazing girls!

Unfortunately I couldn’t pull it together for the qualifications and ended up in 14th with a messy run. Definitely not happy with it because I know I can do better. But like they say better luck next time! And there will be a next time :) I’ve had a great season and I’m not letting this one contest put me down.

Now I’m in Laax Switzerland training till the Dutch Championships!

Isabelle Hanssen bereikt top 10 positie op wereldranglijst

Het talent uit Nijmegen heeft dus weer haar ski’s laten spreken en mede door goede resultaten in Amerika is ze nu de top 10 met een grote grijns binnen komen stormen. Op de discipline halfpipe staat ze nu op de 8e plaats en ze was er zelf dan ook erg over te spreken. “Ja dit is echt prachtig!” Aldus een enorm trotse Isabelle. “Dit is een mooi resultaat waar ik een heleboel voor heb gelaten en waar ik hard voor heb moeten werken. Het is echt geweldig om te zien dat het zo uitpakt en zeggen dat ik ‘erg blij’ ben zou een understatement zijn, ik heb er eigenlijk geen woorden voor zo geweldig!”

1st Place USASA Rocky Mountain Series

Started from the bottom now we’re here! 1st place at the USASA RMS halfpipe comp!

Great beginning of the 2014/2015 season!

I’ve had such a great start of the 2014/2015 season I’d thought I’d share!

On the 24th of November I left the flatlands and traveled to the US!
I spend my first few days riding Keystone! It was so fun to be back on snow!

The first 3 weeks I was staying in Breckenridge with Zyre, Jamie and Jeanee, such a fun crew!
We were very excited when the Halfpipe opened up in Copper Mountain!

Here is a shot of my second day back in the pipe! Captured from some footage thanks Corey!

We also did some cruising at Keystone, Thank you Jeanee for filming that day!

During one of my training days at Copper my friend Micah Emily came up to capture some shots!

I competed in my first ever USASA Rocky mountain series contest and ended up on 2nd place! First comp of the season! And first international pipe podium! Great way to start off the season.

Only a few days later it was the start of the Revolution Tour. I’ve decided to compete in both Halfpipe and Slopestyle. Unfortunately I hurt my head and broke my helmet during slopestyle practice and decided to take it easy.
Still managed on getting 9th place in such a stacked field! I was happy with my run and only 2 points off from making finals in Halfpipe!

After such a great start of the season I decided to get myself a christmas present I wanted for over 3 years.

After all the comps I’ve been training at Breckenridge! Getting ready for the next contest on the 10th of Jan. The 2nd Halfpipe contest of the USASA Rocky Mountain series.

First day of 2015

Cruisin’ Cardrona

Cruisin’ Cardrona from Isabelle Hanssen on Vimeo.

Feeling blessed I got to spend 9 weeks in New Zealand. I absolutely love this place. Cardrona provides one of the best parks.

Due to a lot of different reasons (laziness, closed halfpipes, injuries and helicopter rides) we didn’t get to film much, so here is my seriously average edit filmed in only a few runs cruising Cardrona parks.
