Fear not old boy we'll be going again in two months.....Can't fecking wait myself!Lol! Yeah. Around 29 to 31 mins proper carnage.
Want to go again.....
Happing dude, i'm off to arsinal in andora it's not my choice of place to go would much rather go to Austria. Was all organised by a friend who has a friend working over there that he hasn't seen in a while so he decided to kill 2 birds with 1 stone.
Didn't realise you was a boarder, how long have you been boarding for then?, and where you off to in March?.
Love off piste. Don't love the rocks that go with it though! Lol. Chamonix valley is awesome.Wow quite a few years then, your a lucky man having a family member who owns a apartment in a good resort.
I like France for the choice of things at a resort but not fused on there hotel room sizes and the ridiculous prices they charge for everything. I heard that France has had loads of snow recently so if it keep on snowing there should be loads of powder to play with .
I love off piste and back country.
Yeah. My dad's proper old, 73 and still skis! Lol. Uncles worked hard all his life and just sold his dental practice. He's got the good life now, he has apartment in Ibiza for summer and this one in chamonix for winter..... If I owned it and was retired I would live out there full stop, never mind a seasonFair play to your dad for being out there that long but credit were credits due your uncle definitely wins lad points for doing a season.
If we were both retired and owned a apartment we'd probably do the same in all fairness so big respect for him to be in a position to be able to do it.
I'd love to do a season especially in whistler Canada maybe in a few years i'll do one but for now got to many things going on with having the current Clio track car and the future E30 M3 project.
A mate has been to chamonix and val-disere in a chalet and said he'd go back to chamonix again.
If Val-thorens/3 valleys is near chamonix i'd try that dude, there was good non rocky off piste and the odd tree runs here and there but very expensive.
This is my 1st time at Andorra but from what I've been told the area pass where i'm going they have a heli board option available so might have the chance to do some proper Rockies and full on back country :tongueout:.
Yeah will let you know how the holiday goes.Yeah. My dad's proper old, 73 and still skis! Lol. Uncles worked hard all his life and just sold his dental practice.

Heli drop sounds epic! You'll have to let me know how your holiday goes. 3 valleys rings a bell, I may have been.
Next time I'll have to buy a go pro and take some video. Hopefully capture some entertaining falls
Would love to go Canada. Had the chance a few years back and didn't take it.....
Yeah. I should invest in one!Yeah will let you know how the holiday goes.
Go-pro is definitely worth getting if you do a lot of activities, that's one of the reasons why i purchased mine just for holiday footage.
Me and the group are now starting to plan for a Canada trip In the future, but unlike a normal 1 resort snowboard trip we want to travel around Canada in a hired bus and do as many resorts as possible.
Lol! Awesome.Quality , My mate has been on one dude, he'd done a few runs on family trip quite a few years back as he wanted to do a back flip but wasn't sure how the board would affect his balance or rotation. He said he enjoyed it that much on the last run he went hell for leather and over shoot the bag on one run but luckily he landed it ok.
Ever since that we tend to go off piste and find natural jumps/drop offs and have a mess about, we're not ones to ride piste runs all day.
Will see if I can get my friend to upload our last trip on YouTube and post it up.
Yeah. Was a good job my boards crap anyway. Plenty of scars, lol. I got it home now, can trash it up a local mountain if we ever get snow Will buy or rent next time I'm out.Haha reading your closed piste run madness reminds me of a run me and a friend done with same outcome we actually had to jump a concrete road at one point lol. That's the problem we all think it can't be that bad but soon realise we f**cked up and there's no turning back and potentially costing you a new board :rage:.
I just asked my mate for the link but as its 40+ min long he said he never put it on YouTube, but here's a quick 3min vid of the stuff we get up too thrown in with all the other activities we do.
I have no idea what time we'll be going chap or if we'll be going at all. No ones put down a deposit yet and same as last time, we need a minimum of 8 people attending.Right all those other pesky folks I work with on my shift have actually decided they want that weekend off and got there about a month before me so I won't get the day off.
However I finish work between 6:30 and 7pm... If I had a bit of time for me to nail it from here to Newport (within the confines of the law of course) then I'll be there. :tongueout:
Though if you guys go during the day I'll have to sit this one out!
