Pow Pow

We've been pretty spoilt with snow over the last week, generally
getting a few inches each night...just in time for us to breeze
through the trees and float across the silver lining! But the sun
eventually came out & it hasn't snowed in days. There is something so
alluring about untouched snow, so smooth and silky, just crying out to
be carved, smashed & bashed! So when most of the main trails have been
ridden it's time for a search & destroy mission. Cutting back and
forth, winding in and out of trees, looking for that small patch of
glory to hack into the trees or glide across... Right now I'm chilling
after a days searching, sitting in the arvo sun about to crack a
beer... Tough times ;P

New Ride!

Picked up this fresh new setup, RIDE DH Freetstyle board, Burton
Mission bindings & Salomon boots...It's Been smooth on the mountain
but still doesn't stop me crashing! We've had 3 days of riding now,
snows been great~ thick powder off the main trails & heaps of tree
runs. Up the top of the mountain it's so cold that the pine trees are
like huge ice sculptures... I call it Sasquatch country... Took my
first big stack yesterday & landed face first after a jump & shattered
my goggles. FYI another $100 US for some new ones. It's snowing again
this morning so it's off frolic in -10 white stuff! ;P

4 planes, 36 hours, 11 mins sleep later, we've landed in Hayden
airport, Steamboat Springs. One he'll of a trip but it was epic
landing on a snow covered runway. Heavy Snow falling, time for some

Puerto has left the building...

I'm just waiting in Melbourne airport for my connecting flight to LA,
a staunch 14 hour jam, 5 hour transit & 2 more connecting flights into
Colorado~ let's hope all crying babies, fat old men & Oprah are
nowhere to be seen. That is unless she gives me a Bentley or puts
Noods on a Super Diet. He's put on a few kilohs after too many NYC
Grande Frapa Moo Cowchinos!!! More soon from LA. ;P
