Yeah, I noticed you were from Lyon so wondered if you were ever up in Tignes or Val d'Isere. I have some of the greatest weeks of my life up there! I would have loved to get across and shred this season, but like you, I too am a poor student!
One major benefit of riding in the Alps, and no disrespect to Americans here, is that there is a lack of Americans! I say this because in Europe, you only go skiing/boarding if you can. In America (especially on the west coast) people seem to think because they're rich and from LA they know how to ride. I have never seen so many crashes as in Tahoe and Sugar. So for those reasons, I like to stick to the Alps. I will be sure to let you know if I'm over next season!!
I would like to add however that many of the best boarders I have met are American, so I know you're out there! Just not hiding on the slopes amongst the crowds of LA folk.
