It’s been a while, hasn’t it? But don’t worry, nothing of much interest has happened. It was summer; it rained a lot. I stabbed myself in the hand, got an infected foot and managed to convince some American people that I was fat and ugly and couldn’t ski because I wrote an article about Jamie Anderson getting naked. That last one probably doesn’t sound like it was that good, but it was, really, because it was my first internationally published piece of writing!
Anyway, the other day the weather changed and there was an autumnal chill in the air. The leaves are starting to go brown and this morning there was even a little bit of snow on the peak I can see from my bedroom window. This is probably the best time of year because it means that winter is coming and it’s time to get excited about skiing! Now it’s totally acceptable to make completely uneducated guesses as to what the snow’s going to be like this year, make over-generous declarations of what tricks we’re going to learn and what over budget kit we’re going to buy. The only thing that beats the anticipation is actually going riding and having the best time ever.
So it’s pretty much the perfect time to get my season edit from last winter up here. You may have already seen it, but it’s probably worth watching again, if only for the secret slams at the end. They are very funny.
Enjoy, and have fun getting stoked about winter!
