happy new year!

I hope that you all have had a great holiday season!! It has been pretty good on this end. I spend some time down in California which was a lot of fun. The NW has been pounded with snow lately and my flight was canceled so I got to spend a few extra days in the big CA. I got some much needed riding in with Curtis Keene, Brandon Sloan, Buck and Juan Graziosi at UCSC in Santa Cruz...I cannot wait for summer!

I made it to Seattle on Christmas Eve and had some family bonding time. We were three for three for movie watching...three movies in three days. I saw The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Valkyrie and Marley and Me. Benjamin Button sucked...don’t waste your money. Valkyrie ruled.

I am back in Whistler now. Last night was one of my best New Years Eves’ to date. My experience with New Years Eve is that there is always so much build up...it almost always turns out to be a bust. My friends and I decided to ring in the New Year in style. We went on a hike/campfire mission. We hiked up an XC trail and built a big fire and just hung out and watched fireworks and ate marshmellows. Pretty sweet if you ask me. It was a bit of a mission but it was well worth it and I didn’t start my New Year with a hangover so that is a plus. I spent my New Years Day shredding some deep ass pow! Hellll yeah.
