    Iv never actually tried skiing, I just went for boarding. Learnt pretty quickly I guess. Loads more practice needed to get the hang of jumps, rails etc though! Snowbombing was amazing if you like that kind of thing! Similar sort of thing with rise but the snow wasn't great at all when I went, that was 3 weeks ago. Hopefully it's hammered it down for ya!

    Renting works out just as much as the carriage is to take your own kit onto the plane so it's not too bad! Can even swap out the board for different ones through the week if you really wanted to.. winning! Bollé goggles I've never used but they'll be ideal for the week. I prefer goggles myself- used to kick about with sunglasses but goggles are better for higher speeds.........

    They say skiing is easier to learn, harder to master and snowboarding is the opposite so by the sounds of it you'll be in the Winter X-Games soon enough!

    I got back from Les 2 Alpes on Saturday then... unfortunately for the first 2 days it was raining so we only spent about an hour each of those days on the mountain and the rest on the booze... what else would you do??
    Every other day from then on just got better and better... dumped it through the night and got a couple perfect bluebird days so I can't complain... Currently putting some clips together so will get it up on my YouTube channel and on here if anyone wants to take a look!

    Gutted to be home... Though it was snowing when we got back so doesn't feel like I've been away to be honest haha.

    Covered 33km today. My legs are well and truly done in. Time for a well deserved pint.
