Out of the halfpipe….CHECK!

Well, I have done a few runs the pipe now and must admit, watching people I thought I could get some air time out of the top, but when I tried myself I was too much of a chicken! I decided to add it to my list of things to do whilst over here, and… Read more »

Halfpipe wifey!

Well, I managed to get Ems to do the lesson in the pipe…almost had to drag her kicking and screaming…but it worked! She progressed from being scared of entering the pipe, all the way to getting onto the walls and getting some speed up! Now she is at the same level as me as I… Read more »

A few runs in the slush

Went out for a few runs today, only to find that almost everywhere was slush. Normally good fun but after a heavy slam on wednesday my body is suffering. I came over the red kicker hoping to do a grab, but I ended up rotating 90 degrees backside instantly catching my heels on the transition.… Read more »

Trying my bit at trash talk!

My friend Joycey has decided to step up his game, and he thought the best way to do that was to challenge me to a wee competition within the realms of snowboard freestyle! I have posted my first video to Youtube and I am now awaiting his response, to try and beat it or at… Read more »

Spins and things…

With the wee Wifey feeling a little under the weather today I headed out by myself to go meet up with Mel. I have found that I am a lot less forgiving when I am by myself, making comments to ignorant skiers on rental skis chipping away at my edges. When I am with someone… Read more »

Turn it up a notch

Well, after being here for 107 days, and only 44 days to go, we all decided it was time to step it up a gear. Ems, Carol and Mel are hitting the blue kickers, barrel jump, boxes and also starting to get grabs. Dom, Stu and me have started hitting the reds on a frequent… Read more »

Where did that come from?!

Ems had some porridge today and decided that it was a good day to go big, along with the rest of the jackrabbitt morzine crew. Here are a few snaps from the day, write ups to come soon!

Powder anyone?!

The snow we should have had back in January is finally here! Ems has been off for a couple of days due to some bruised ribs because of a fight with a mogul, but she is all good now (Well…getting better but she doesn’t want to miss the currently heavy dumping snow!). Not much updating… Read more »
