Good times in thredbo |


Well after getting the all clear last week from my Doctor that my surgery was a 100% success it was finally time to step it up get out there and go shredding! Despite it being a picture perfect day on Saturday because of all the rain the week before and cold temps the night before the snow was very icy firm and fast great for race training not so great for your average slide. After skiing for a few hours I stoped to hang out with Dawes and Anthony at the Liberty tent for the demo day in Thredbo. It’s great to see people when they try a new product and when they come back from trying it seeing how pumped they are and surprised they are as to how well the bamboo rides in the skiis.

Saturday night I went up to Perisher with some friends to watch the first of three Perisher night-time slope style series. It was an excellent set up by Perisher, great course under lights. Despite it being very firm underfoot the guys and girls were throwing down big and the grom’s definitely stepping it up a notch. It was a great night for the Liberty Team as Boen Ferguson took out the Open Men’s Comp and Thomas Waddell took out Male Grom Ski category congrats go to them both. Keep your eyes out for the World Heli Challenge being held in in Wanaka in New Zealand t over the coming week depending on weather it’s an amazing competition to check out.

One of my favourite things about skiing is getting to go out with friends skiers or boarders and shred the hill I was lucky enough to ride with two of my favourite people on the hill on Monday Frother (Brad) who snowboards like a maniac hitting the park with him. He has already had 40+ days on the hill this season –  that’s commitment and Paul Gardner from Jindy who has seen me ski almost from day one and following him down through golf course after a morning snow fall is a great way to spend a day skiing.

I could not be happier with the five days just gone, I achieved everything I wanted to and more, and my fitness wasn’t too bad considering I haven’t been doing a lot since March where I did (or undid) my arm. All my equipment held up well both in and out of bounds.  Am a lot more confident heading into NZ in just over three weeks! Keep checking back here as I have some interesting stories to come in the next two weeks. Keep shredding yew!!!
