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, 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. http://www.burton.com/Gear/Default.aspx#/gear/productdetail/mens/boots/10460/207486703/

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