Ive been back in Wanaka now just over a month , an its been amazing .

Its so nice coming back here every year after being away traveling ,  even tho I grew up here I never get board of this place  , there;s so much to do an it truely is a paradise  
Temperatures have been super warm recently for this time of year  , an its been great getting out on the golf course most day ,  Mt biking round the lake lots , catching up with friends again an getting abit of fishing done

My buddy Rupert has been helping me get back into flyfishing , an its been a great challenge an alot of fun .
there are some great places to fish around here  with alot of river an streams offering good fishing .

I also shot up to Auckland , thanks to Monster for a Bigair event they had in the city  ,   It was pretty awesome considering there wasnt much snow an the size of the jump wasnt huge  ,  a great weekend catching up with friends an having a few jumps .

Starting to snow now in Wanaka , so will update next with some shredding shots .

Stopped in at Ohau stream by kaikoura to visit the baby seals ,

Back to Whistler

Been back in Whistler now for about a month , an winter still seems to be in full swing here even tho its almost may , have had some super fun days out there recently an things have been going well .

Had a couple minor mishaps with the sled like breaking belts, rolling it abunch an some mechanic issues , but shes still going strong.

The terrain in the Whister b/c really blows me away everytime an it seems constantly endless , everyday always finding new stuff to hit

I was also recently apart of The Show , a unique snowboard event put on by Monster Energy .
they partnered up with the Telus ski an snowboard Festival to produce an amazing week  of shredding ,  partying an wild antics .

Im off to Lake Louise tomorrow for a few days with Monster  an then after that down to Super Park 15 in Bend Oregon , so should be a fun packed few weeks .

Enjoy the shots below an Ill try update when Im back

Switzerland Trip

I just returned from a week in the Swiss alps with Snowboard Canada  .

Got invited on the trip an couldn't be more stoked that I went , the trip was all covered an some of the places we stayed an rode were amazing  .
It turned out to be a really fun week , an we scored great conditions the whole time .

We rode 4 resorts that were all massive an spanned over thousands of meters , they were :
Schilthorn , Kleine Scheidegg ,  Grindelwald First an Hasliberg .

Some of the highlights for me were :  Brekefast at 3500 meters in revolving restaurant ,  Taking the train thru the Eiger Mountain to the top of the Jungfrau  11 782 Ft ,   sampling some great Swiss food an beer , Shredding Hasliberg resort , staying up in a cabin on the mountain an watching amazing sunsets .

A massive shout out to all the crew on the Trip , the friends we met  an to the Tourism board for putting us up .
Switzerland is so beautiful an is a must do on anybody list , I highly recommend it  .
