Smile FIS SnowboardCross World Cup

I was at the FIS Snowboard-Cross World Cup last weekend in Andorra as a member of the press, and it was great to get in to the swing of things once again. I used to follow snowboarding as a kid on TV watching the Winter X Games and it was so weird to be on the slopes for the first time, alongside names like Shaun Palmer, Seth Wescott and Cam Bolton..

I made a video about the fashion on the slopes: the best outerwear, and what goes on in the top athletes' minds when choosing what to put on when boarding. I just put it up on my blog, I even got to interview Ross Hindman (ISTC Coach) who has previously coached Palmer himself!

Overall the experience was great, and I've rejuvenated my love for the sport - so with that, I introduce myself, and I look forward to joining in the conversation here at Snowboarding Forum.
