New tricks, new ambitions: James eyes Olympic glory

Posted by on Sep 21, 2017

Scotty James -took all before him in 2016/17. Now for the Olympics.

If you want to know what Scotty James has been up to this past six months, even he says it’s best not to look at his social media.

There’s Barcelona, boxing poses and a boat in Miami that could be straight from The Lonely Island film clip.

Falls Creek

It’s a work in progress but with Perisher dropping out of building a Superpipe in Australia, there’s some decent prospects of Falls Creek filling the void.

Win REX flights to Albury, Cooma!

It’s something to do with not feeling exhausted (there or on the way back), cutting a good chunk out of your travel time and not having to deal with thousands of people in their cars who have exactly the same idea of having a cheeky few days down the snow.

In celebration of such things our good friends at Regional Expresss (REX) have ponied up with four return airfares – two each from Sydney to Cooma and another two from Melbourne to Albury!

There may have been bigger storms but the consensus is that there haven’t been too many drier.

When it snows in parts of Canberra and Goulburn, NSW and Woodend, Lancefiled and Gippsland in Victoria – that generally only means epicness in the alps.
