Hi, my name is Gianny, 18 years old, and European. I have 7 years experience in the snow (2 years skiing, 5 years boarding), and the reason why i sign up on this forum is because i’am looking for bigger challenges and new experiences. Every year i go boarding to Austria (Hochfugen-Hochzillertal, Mayrhofen, Solden… ) or France (Espace killy, Les Trois Vallées…) and i have the feeling that i’am ready for something new.
I already did some research on Belgian, German, and French forums, but no one can give me an answer there, because most of them have never been outside Europe for boarding. In march i have 6 weeks holiday, and i really want to go to the mountains, but i really have no idea what is the best place to go in this period (outside Europe). I was thinking to go to Patagonia, Argentina, because i’am travelling now in South-America, but no one can give me answers about this place. Other options are Canada or Japan, but i really have no idea when the season starts over there??? So i hope there are boarders here on the forum with experience that can help me??
I’am also planning to buy a new board for the trip, i now have a burton bullet from 2008 (158) with burton cartel bindings (2008), but its more a freestyleboard and i’am looking for a good board for freeriding and to go fast, so i was thinking about the Burton Custom X 2013 (162) with the cartel bindings.
