My wife is also a skier, but tried snowboarding a couple times this year. When asked why I don't stick around with her to give her tips I just ensure her that it's better to learn on your own or from an instructor.

Yeah we'll see what happens. She's only going to be there for three days (30 flights from London to Turin are great) and I'm there for 8 so I'll probably just hang around and help her out while she's there to see how she likes it, if she picks it up quickly then she might get a lesson to get the drills down. This is a pretty chilled out trip so it should be fun anyway.

I wish more videos showed the fails and outtakes like that... Lets you appreciate the difficulty & danger of the jumps more than watching clip after clip of perfect 100ft spins.

Put this together the other day after we got 2 feet of snow thanks to Vulcan. Mountain was on wind-hold through pretty much the whole storm, so not nearly as many waist-deep pow shots as I wanted to get in there, but it was a fun weekend regardless!

So I did end up getting the missus on a board this trip. The instructors were absolute garbage so I ended up teaching her myself. The conditions were utter crap while she was there so it didn't bother me just cruising around while she got the hang of it. Base of the mountain was pretty much wake boarding and the top was rock hard. Anyway, had her linking turns nicely by day three and had a ball.

It puked snow yesterday. I was up with 4 mates and we were the only ones there apart from another group of 3 on the entire mountain - unbelievable. Had to stick on the groomers as everything else was just frozen chop but we ended up with a good 30cm dusting on top anyway so had a ball fucking about. There's an old French biker that runs a bar in the middle of the mountain who makes home brew rocket fuel called Fart so we'd do a run around the hill, drop in for a shot of Fart and a beer then do it all over again. That happened 8 times after lunch... needless to say we had a skin full by that stage.

It continued to dump all night but I had to fly back to London today, what a shame. Probably wouldn't go back to Valfrejus, it's very small but has some nice slack/side/back country opportunities if the snow was really good. I checked out La Norma for a day too and it's probably worth a look with good conditions.

Here's a piccie.

I try & bring something for these little guys every time I go.

If whatever doesn't kill you, only makes you stronger.
