It has been a while since I went last to the Air&Style, but this year Billabong sent me there for a signing session.
As it had been a bit of a frustration not to see girls riding at this event, I decided to make a petition with the full support of Sarka Pancochova, Cheryl Maas, Tanja Detomas, Lisa Filzmoser, Jenny Jones, Jamie Anderson, Kimmy Fasani, Hana Beaman, Leanne Pelosi, Bev Vuilleumier and Marie-France Roy, hoping to see girls next year..
So I ended up running around with my piece of paper and it was great to see all the positive feedback from the public and the industry… Thanks to all of those who signed it!
This weekend I went to Avoriaz for the Rock on Snow Tour. It was fun to ride around even though the snow conditions are very poor in France at the moment, a lot of ski lifts are closed and none of the tree runs are ridable.
When I went back to my car the road was super icy, there had been an accident and I got stuck on the road for half an hour, so I decided to turn around and wait in a cafe… When I tried to turn around my car started slipping in all directions. A couple guys had to come and push my car into a parking spot. So I decided to leave it there for the night and go back up to the resort.
And that was such a good decision, not only I avoided ending up in a gutter or crashing into another car but also when I got back up I found my good friends PP and L’Arrogs from the Psykopit crew. Sylvain Bourbousson, Mathieu Crepel, Nico Droz, Mamar, Alfie, etc. It was really fun to get to hang with those guys like in the good all times! Hope I’ll get to see them again soon!
That’s always the coolest thing to go to events at the beginning of the winter, you get to meet all the good friends you ahven’t seen for a while and it’s always great fun to get to shred some slopes together!
The temperatures have dropped and I hope it will translate into snow by the end of this week. I’ll keep you posted very soon!
