A first attempt at the Green Sella Ronda. It turned out to be to challenging for our skier & the trip exhausted her for the rest of the week. Better luck next time 😦 We completed the Sella Ronda that day though the last part, Arabba to the starting point was done by Taxi instead of on the snow. And a spectacular taxi ride at that!

The last day. We had had the best of the snow by then and it was pretty much muck by then. So we snowed around some, Bio calling it quits early afternoon & Me and Vi quitting at about 3. We had a great last lil run there, but the snow just wasnt good enough anymore..

A fun trip all n all.. Watch this space for some video reports 😉 So yeah.. an estimated 153 KM of slopes last week. I think thats a relaxed nr for an experienced boarder, but quite the feat for the people following me 😉 Apparently I dragged them through hell & back 😉 ehe No wonder my knees need a bit of recuperation!

And in other news.. Apparently, Ive been snowboarding for about 8 years now, which makes this my 13th week of Snowboarding fun. Not counting the indoor days.. Not bad ay 😉 And I’ve got some freeride skills to show for it. I’ll be taking some local lessons though next year. I want a pro to tell me if there s any mistakes left in my style, what points I need to fix next. And then I guess its on to the freestyle 😉 Although I guess my heart will stay with the freeriding.. Not for nothing that I got myself a sparkling pretty freeride board 😉 a Burton Supermodel X!

Burton Supermodel X

And after a week of ripping, I now know why I paid that much for those fancy Burton SLX boots I now ride with!

Burton SLX Boots

Worth every cent. Very handy & comfy!

I am becoming quite the Burton boy though.. My Burton IPod Cargo vest (god I love that thing! Keeps me sooooooo dry), my Ronin Transition pants (thats a burton brand), the Burton Combo Gloves, my burton SLX boots (Jummy Comfy Sweet) and now my Burton Supermodel X Board.. Thank god I still have my wonderful Flow Amp 05-FR binds!

I’ll be keeping the old Oxygen Quantum board though.. Its still a great board and it ll serve me well on those days when I risk damaging my fancy snowboard on rocks or rails 😉

Next trip: May 3rd; a fun day of Indoor snow!
Cant wait to ride the new board 😀
