Summer has been moving along pretty swiftly for me this year. A couple weeks ago I went out to Norway to hang with the HH dudes. We went to test some of the winter 08 product and see how it would stand up. It was cool to hang with Oyvind and also get to see some of Norway’s beautiful west coast. Some really nice fjords and waterfalls made for some good backdrops. We were in Stryn which has a small glacier and a small snowpark. Some good fun especially venturing out to the backside for some runs to the road!!
After that it was off to Voss for the HH sponsored Extreme Festival week which was super cool. All these different sports and athletes coming together for a week of partying and celebration. Got to hang with Steve Fisher too which is always a good time.
Now back in Whistler it was real hot weather but its changed to more rain and almost spring/fall feel of the weather but I doubt for long because heck its summertime!! Whistler had so much snow this year that the glacier was the best ever!! Camp of Champions had its best setup and camp yet. Some real sick jump lines and alot of fun but its hard to be motivated to be snowboarding when its like 35 degrees out and the mountain bike park is in top shape. Speaking of mtn. biking the Crankworx festival just started this weekend and next week is the big slopestyle which will be super sick. They have a pretty crazy setup and some huge jumps. I got a new bike too so I’ve been pretty stoked on that…
Well I’m heading outside to work on my place putting in some new stairs and a deck.
Oh yeah I hear down in S. America they’re having a good season so I’m hoping to head down there to check out the powder and also to test some more of the winter 08 product which by the way is looking real solid!!
Time to shut this distractor down and enjoy the outdoors…
