I live in Houston now...

I live in Houston now (work), so I only got 2 days on the snow . You guys that live close to the mountains enjoy it for me and don't take it for granted.

Despite only getting 2 days in, I made the most of them. I can still do all of my tricks, can still ride everything switch, can still go all day, etc.

I got a lot of video and had a lot of fun with my best friends.

I miss being able to ride all the time, but I definitely love riding just as much as I used to. Maybe someday my work will take me back to the snow

Don't just live life on the edge, jump off it!

How DARE you doubt the great mountain Fernie. You just didn't offer to sacrifice a virgin while you were there!

Shitty snow year, but have upped my carving on ice, improved dynamic maneuvers, moguls are feeling better and fast speed skills are improved...but most importantly still having fun.

The weather has been kinda goofy here which has kept me from a lot of hero lines due to coverage/avy danger , but Ive had fun so far. Ive expanded my territorial range quite a bit so that's been exciting







Its been a season of heavy snow but this was some of the lightest Ive even ridden

Far too many, spent my first decent chunk on the snow this year probably racking up 80 days.
-Passed instructing level 1
- Avalanche course
- backflips
- 360s

Now I have a million more goals for next season

Don't get to shred nearly as much so I'm not really pushing to get better, mostly just trying not to get worse. So stomping a few 540s last weekend felt good, also got in one solid powder day (usually don't get one in a year) so was stoked on that as well

The stoke is high!

Moving from Ontario to BC was the best thing I could have done with regards to progressing my snowboard skills. I feel confident in powder, trees, small cliffs / drops (all of which are in short supply in the East).

Definitely haven't gotten out as much as I had hoped (work sucks), but planing a couple of weekend trips this month and lots of spring time action in April

2014 ain't over yet!

Spent an obscene amount of time teaching this year, with great reward. I started gaining enough confidence with the support of my co-workers to try things I haven't done in awhile. I also got to road trip up to the mountains with someone pretty awesome, and was coerced into trying to conquer my fear of heights with MORE support from my co-workers. For now, I've also got a few weeks left in the season, so hopefully my students will help me make the best of that, and hopefully one last small road trip is going to happen before I hop on my bike and start pedaling everywhere.
