I have been trying to get the girlfriend into boarding - going as far as booking a six hour lesson for her birthday !!! - she's still bruised

We're both off to Fernie, BC in January 2009.

Other than that I'm into mountain biking, surfing, windsurfing, walking, cars, bikes, paragliding..... generally stupid stuff that could get you hurt but in the mean time is good fun.

*touching wood (ooer) I have never had any real catastrophes - apart from 30 stiches to my head and various scars from biking (though i have been doing that for 12 years...and I fell off on a road)

Been a member of a UK-based extreme sports forum that has been taken over by complete arses... hence heading elsewhere....
Welcome to the forum. You'll enjoy Fernie. One of my favorite resorts ever. They've been known to get epic powder dumps as well.
My experience and what I do in snowboarding is really quite
independent of the industry and the more independent it is,
the more pure and better I feel about snowboarding.- Craig Kelly

Hi all! I just registered to this forum today, I'm always on the ibiza spotlight forum in the summer talking dj's, drinks and dance tracks but I've had my summer clubbing holiday now and am looking forward to thinking about the winter 08/09 season. I've really enjoyed the ibiza forum so thought it was time I looked for one on my other favourite hobby boarding, this site looks just my cup of tea! In particular this year I will be reading all the resort reviews as I am undecided as to where to board this year (theres no chance where I live so I'm afraid I'm a holidays only boarder, if only I lived in the mountains!). I'm fairly new to boarding (started in 2005) although I have been to quite a few resorts, Chamonix in France (my first holiday as a beginner) and since then Colorado (Vail, Copper Mountain) , Wyoming (Jackson Hole and some off-piste by the Teton pass), California (Tahoe) and Canada (Vancouver, Whistler and Big White). Looking forward to hearing your advice and perhaps giving a little out myself

Hi everyone, my names JP.. I just registered after lurking for a long time so I figured I should say hello. I'm from the northeast (Boston Ma) where the conditions are tough but the times are fun! During my time lurking I've taken a lot of advice away from this website and I'd just like to thank everyone who has helped! Also, the trips reports are great and I hope to read and contribute many more this winter! Hope everyone's enjoying there summer, winter is just around the bend!
