(selection of videos below).   “element L” – Defrag “Outro” – […]

The Wildest Dream : Conquest of Everest UK Television Premiere

Climbing Everest is a dream I am unlikely to ever fulfil, but is a subject I have great interest in and I hold huge respect for anyone who has attempted or succeeded in conquering.   There have been some great books published over the years recounting explorers tales and woes of taking on the worlds tallest peak.    Jon Krakauer’s –  Into […]

Okemo Report

I was really spoilt by the conditions at Mount Snow last weekend! Following the partial thaw, extreme temperature drop and lack of snow last week – I wasn’t surprised to find less than favorable conditions at Okemo. The surface snow was man made and very granular, the base was packed ice and the light was very flat. All in all, […]

To Flow Or Not to Flow

I’m not going to stoke the great flow debate – except to say, they work for some and don’t work for others. Horses for courses and all that. Having huge US 15 feet, my setup is limited. Currently I have a 168 Ride Mountain board, coupled with US 15 Vans BFB boots and Flow Pro FR bindings. My main issue […]

Powder, but oh so cold!

I awoke at 4 am with a searing cramp in my right calf!! After hopping round the room for a few minutes, I checked outside expecting snow – there was nothing! 2 hours later my alarm went off and this time I looked out to see a couple of inches of fresh! I had hoped to get to Mount Snow […]

Feels good to be back on the snow.

I spent the day at Mount Snow – what a day! I wasn’t expecting much, considering the lack of snow in Vermont, but was pleasantly surprised with how good conditions were. There was a nice layer of fresh and it wasn’t until late afternoon that the runs got icey. I’ve decided snowboarding is like riding a bike! You never forget! […]

Gearing up!

Got the board out in preparation for the weekend. The flows are on and set up. The boots are on my feet and the bag is packed for tommorrow. Just need to decide where i’m going first thing. I’d forgotten how heavy my board and flows were!!! It weighs a blinkin ton! I’ve made a few prototype modifications to my […]

Winter Olympics opens in Torino

For once I actually watched the opening ceremony – quite impressive. Looking forward to watching the coverage, just hope the American networks do a better job than they did with the Athens coverage, which was dire. People definitely seem more pumped up for it here than back in the UK. I guess this partly due to lack of expected success […]

Storm headed for the East Coast

I’m watching the weather channel like a hawk. After much discussion, the meteorologists have issued a weather warning for the east coast. We could be looking at 1 foot of snow! I had planned to drive to the local snow resort “Mount Snow” this weekend, but in light of the projected storm, I’m going to sit tight and make a […]
