Still Snowing…

  Well, some more snow has arrived at long last.  Woke up to a pretty light snowfall with 2 or 3cm already on the cars.  But that light snowfall hasn’t stopped all day and doesn’t look like it’s going to stop any time soon 🙂 After working for the morning, headed up the mountain for […]

There be Snow in Them There Clouds…

Another morning above the clouds.  Was on the first lift again and spent a couple of hours up there.  It was pretty cold going through the cloud layer but warm enough once you got up the top and into the sun.  Got in some good runs and covered about 25km before having to head back […]

Playing Above the Clouds…

Well, woke up to a cloudy morning – only the second one this month year 😉 The amount of days I used to wake up in London and the city was covered by a blanket of low cloud and I used to think to myself, wouldn’t it be great if there was an Upper-Level to the […]

Forward Thinking…

Pics From This Week…

Sick Stick…

If you’re looking for a new board this season and you’re equally at home tearing up the park or shredding the backcountry, the 2012 Build And Destroy Series “all-mountain, freestyle” stick from Imperium might just fit the bill…It definitely looks the part with some seriously sick graphics inspired by the onward march of consumerism, apparently. It’s a […]

More Snow Coming…?

First little bit of cloud cover today (since the last big dump on the 5th Jan) after two weeks of lovely sunshine.  Does this mean some more snow’s on the way?  The forecasts say a little dusting tonight and tomorrow and some more ‘flocons’ over the weekend..so doesn’t sound like much but we’ll see Still some […]
