A winter of watching colleagues depart for snowy pistes and listening with jade-eyed despair to their returning stories is almost over. With no pack of marauding britons to invade europe alongside for once, I have gone solo and signed up for a snowboarding camp in Avoriaz, France leaving on the 16th April. 😀

Snowboarding accident

As I’ve never gone on one of these camps before and I don’t know anyone who has, I’m kinda worried about the age ranges of the other campers.. Got sorta stonewalled by my email contact when I posed the question and didn’t want to repeat it and make a big deal out of it, so I suppose we shall see what we shall see… :s

Still, at the end of the day, I haven’t been on snow for the best part of a year and I really don’t give a crap if I have to put up with a couple of kids if it means I get to get riding again. I’m just really up for getting out there and improving my riding..
Got an email through a few weeks back about what sorta stuff is planned for the week and there’s some pretty cool shit lined up..
There’ll be a couple of pros there to give pointers..

In my case that’ll probably be things like: “Try NOT headbutting the rail, you twat!” :@

There’s tuition in the mornings, which focuses mainly on park and rails and afternoons are free to ride the mountain or just sit and sob in the hotel bar, cursing your uncooperative, aching body, getting drunk and goading passing children and pets into fights by throwing bar snacks at them….

on the other hand, I’ve got it into my head that I’m not coming back without pulling a frontside 3, so all in all it should turn out to be either interesting, embarrasing or just downright painful. 😈 😈
