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 […]

Crazy Crazy Weather

It’s been the warmest winter on record out here. Last week the temperature dropped to below freezing, then climbed to spring like conditions. Then this morning i awoke to find it snowing! Temps are due to drop by 40 degrees this weekend!!! Back in Blighty, conditions are fairly constant, you don’t get the extremes and changeability like out here. I […]

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!

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 […]

Bit chilly out

Bit late with this blog – been a tad busy! Flight over went fairly smoothly. The united Airlines flight was barely half full, so there was stacks of room to spread out. It’s not often I get 3 seats to myself. Thankfully my board was waiting for me at Washington. I then had a short flight to Hartford Connecticut, the […]

Vermont for 3 weeks

Working out in Brattleboro, Vermont for 3 weeks. Flying into Hartford CT, picking up the hire car and then travelling up the I91 to Brattleboro. I’m taking the board with me, so providing my weekends are work free, i should get some snow time. Vermont has plenty of hills on offer.
