December has been an interesting month. I haven’t been up to ride yet. Between cutting my eye (argg what a ridiculously painful thing to do) and now somehow fracturing my foot, it’s been one of those months. I’m itching to get out on the snow, so I hope you guys are out making turns, and enjoying the ride. I’m hoping to get out over the next couple of weeks to make up for lost time. Look for posts coming up. Hope it’s snowing in your part of the world!
I’ve been buried under work, which has kept the site a bit quiet. Have no fear, I’m gearing up for a pretty solid season, and will have some great reviews etc coming forth. Hope everyone had an awesome Thanksgiving!
Burton, a brand I don’t mention much on my blog (I should probably demo/ride more of their gear maybe) has dropped the first part in a four part series entitled Burton Backcountry [Snowboarding]. I’ve always been a huge fan of watching Terje Haakonsen, and Nicolas Müller ride and this is no exception, but also enjoyed watching Jussi Oksanen, Jeremy Jones, Mikey Rencz, and Mark Sollors throw down on some gnarly backcountry terrain.
The video is free to download and/or watch. You can check out the gents throwing pow around, hitting pillows and so much more below (youtube.com link).
