Well. I made it back.

Back from the other side of the planet.. back and better than ever.. finding myslef bigger and better mountains, more snow, more time on-snow.

It took me so long to dig out this password, I feel so silly. I should've gone looking. This infusion of pink is exactly purrfect.

I have pictures to upload, of my chasing the snow...

Here I go again...

Tomorrow (or is it today? I've been packing and it's 5 AM) I catch a bus.

From the bus I catch a plane.

36 hours and 25 minutes later, I step off the plane in another hemisphere; into another season.

From the plane I catch another plane, and then another bus.

Which winds into the mountains and takes me...

Uhm, well..

I'm still alive. Actually, living the dream. But that means internet acces is terribly limited, mostly to internet cafes with my stickerized laptop..

I've been back from out west for a week, off snow for 2 weeks and I'm just aching to be back onto my board.

Thankfully though, as part of my chasing-the-snow, I'm off for another winter...

Oh. My. Goodness.

Well. I flew out here, out west, following the snow. And I have it in spades, as well as more sunhine and gnarly terrain than I can cover before it all melts off. I've been having the best time, although it's been a whirlwind. So many changes..

The really neat news is that a staff-accomodation-mate of mine has SG stickers...

12 days left.

I'm on course this weekend, which I'm looking forwards to immensely.My little sister, whom I never get to see, has coincidentally been placed on the same course. So I'll get 3 whole days of riding with her, as well as another friend of ours that we worked with "back in the day" before all of us moved on...

Arg. I'm going crazy right now. I feel like I have so many balls in the air right now and they're all on the way down, down, down to the too-hard ground.

A few have already fallen, splintering into a million gleaming shards and spilling their precious contents of secret dreams and whispered, tremulous hopes to swirl and evaporate: stolen as thin, unnoticed...

Well, the week was grand. I learned a ton, all sorts of cabs and styled-out crooks on and off of boxes. Provincials were fun, I battled my way down a suicidal BX course and into the finals, but got taken out as the girl beside me didnt clear one of the gapped rollers and came in 4th.

All in all, I managed to fall on...

haha i could see it now "Wynter The battered Set"

just all your riding bruises. but woo woo for some 360s up in dat shizt.

I find small towns much more polite. More dirty looks, but no fear that a gaggle of Ginos are going to take me into the back alley and do me. And the YELLING that happens in Toronto...I've NEVER seen happen in a small town.

City folk have no manners....

A friend of mine has toe tattoos. Like the knuckle tattoos where people get "HARD CORE" or something equally 4-letter-slogan-ey. I've tossed around the idea of getting "SNOW BOUND", but now I'm starting to think more and more about it.

I mean, I don't like my toes anyways and I certainly hardly ever see them (I own about a zillion pairs of...

Well, I made it. It's reading week now, my microscope is sitting on the kitchen table of the chalet. Today was absolute perfection: frigid, but sunny and still, so as long as I kept moving the riding was good as long as my legs were good for. And breathing in the pure, cold air; feeling it freeze the moisture through your nasal passages and...

Bindings are still out on warranty



last time I went out riding the warranty on my Switches had just run out. I cracked the shit out of those things on a particularilly hard fall on a course that I (or any living person) should not have been trying to tackle. You are seriously making me miss the whole experience though...pulled muscles, fractured bones and all smile
