Sankt Anton am Arlberg trip

Sankt Anton am Arlberg trip

My bro Luke reminding himself why he left his well paid job in London to go and Live in the mountains.

I had to keep hiking this as Luke blew the shot 3 times in a row. When he finally got it, I kind of blew the method!

This was the day before. The jump had a nice little untracked lip with a gap to clear.

St. Anton has sooo much terrain.

We wanted to go back and build a little kicker here, but it snowed overnight so the next day we didnt hangaround.




There is not much that beats the feeling of a backside 180 off the side of the piste into the powder below.

but sometimes straight airs feel even better than grabbing and spinning.  


After a white out most of the time, we got lucky on the last day :)

The first time I fractured my vertebra Snowboarding I mainly  switched back over to skiing, and somehow managed to make my old snowboard boots last 10 years! I finally picked up some new ones this week. The guy in the shop said these might be too soft as I bust my ankle skating in the past, but they felt like my legs were stuck in concrete after my old boots. After a few runs they were amazing though. What a difference 10 years makes!

Thanks for having me to stay bro!

    Thanks, was only 2 days riding, but we got around a lot! They are the Burton Hail. Got a real nice 2 piece construction so they flex well for grabs. I tried on about 8 different makes and models and these were by far the most comfy.

    Now is a good time to buy as they have end of season sales. I got them for 40% off.
