The last two weeks have been a much needed little break from the boardercross tour. After the land of Poutine, I headed to New York City with my compadre Simona from the Swiss snowboard team. New York lived up to its name! Jazz in greenwich village, Empire State Building by night, Peaches dj set in midtown, The Highline at sunset, a broadway show, delicious coffee in little italy, chaos in chinatown, little treasures in Chelsea. Just a pinch of the week in the Big Apple. It was relaxing and wonderfully exhasting at the very same time.
The last week was spent enjoying some time with the family back in the great north. No matter the snow condition, its always nice to come home. It centers you, a good wind down from the excitement of a big city. But unfortunately, the snow was not the best snow I’ve ever seen from my hometown. Hard pack and ice. ; (
I just arrived today in Lake Tahoe, California for the North Face Masters Competition which begins this Thursday and goes through the weekend. Take a trip to http://www.thenorthfacemasters.com for online coverage of the competition. The incredible winter that Tahoe has had should make for some fine snowboarding! I can’t wait!
