Got a house 5 minutes from Saddleback mountain, so will be up there for a couple of weeks at a time over the winter, at least every weekend I hope.

Haven't tried snowboarding yet.

Only started last year and managed to do one black run then had to stop so hope this year I can work up to doing some of the glades.

I REALLY want to go to the snow bombing thing.

I remember that Three Valleys map very well! Val Thorens is fun

Might go to Switzerland for a week in feb. Would love to go to snowbombing but it costs a fortune I bet. Snowboxx in Andorra aka Ibiza on ice is a lot cheaper

La Sarenne in Alpe D'Huez - 16km long, over 2000m vertical. Nice scenery. The black runs near the top from Pic Blanc are incredible in nice conditions. La Fare in the same resort is probably my favourite black just because I know it and it's not too busy so it's perfect for going full pelt.

Also been to Val D'Isere/Tignes, Chamonix/Argentiere, Les Deux Alpes (France), St Anton (Austria), Bariloche (Argentina) - all good.

Fucked my knee snowboarding though so maybe I'll never go again

i live in morzine so yeah i'll be riding, hoping for another winter like last year, so much powder, serious lines all season, this was the best, first tracks with 3 mates, from the peak (mine's the wiggly one through the trees, i love dodging shit)



took my mate up there for some laps later in the afternoon and he go-pro'd a run, i'm dropping in behind him...

>> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MrhPo1YJIKs

this is my personal spot (dubbed hidden tree kingdom), can get fresh pillows through trees till lifts close, right off the piste, just gotta nose your way through 30 feet of dense woodland, then it opens out, not many people seem to know about it, never seen anybodies tracks apart from mine and the crew i take through

Either going to Val D'isere or Courmayeur around March. Gonna try and make it over to Canada for the 2014 season though.

Probably the most enjoyable thing in the world for me is crusing off piste after a few beers with some tunes on . All about hotboxing the bubble lifts aswell.

I've been trying to make sure I get to tailgate for the last few years, great way to finish off the northern season. It's not the cheapest place to get to but well worth saving for. You get a real chance to push yourself and if you have never done cat/heli skiing before, this is the best/cheapest way to start. I already have my pass for 2014!

it's over les gets side (that's all you're getting, no way am i posting up an exact location online, or telling anyone else that doesn't ride with me, it's my secret pow stash!), i tend to prefer riding les gets/nyon over the morzine avoriaz side on epic powder days, even if you get first lifts from morzine, the whole of avoriaz will have already tracked a lot of the decent stuff by early morning, satellites seems to stay decent (if you take the path through the woods to the right) till late afternoon if it's cold enough though..

Wanted to pick up a Go Pro this year, but just had to shell out £400 on winter tyres GoPro budget gone. So I just picked up this



Anyone ever used one? I know the video quality isnt as good as a GoPro but its by no means bad. £59 aswell.
