Splitboard Sunday : Doolans edition

Splitboard Sunday : Doolans edition

Spending the day in the Doolans with my love and my splitboard under the most perfect bluebird sky was incredible. My skills are progressing much faster than I had hoped, & thanks to some good pointers I finally feel like I might actually be getting the hang of splitting! Rather than drone on about how […]

Splitboard Season : OPEN

Splitboard Season : OPEN

  The last week inched by slowly, with the promise of snowfall to sea-level forecast for much of the lower south island all eyes were focussed squarely on the weather radars while we eagerly counted down the days. With baited breath I hit the hay early in the evening, knowing that promising storms are often […]

Saturday Session – Christy Prior

Saturday Session – Christy Prior

Bringing things back down under today with an epic edit from….. Christy Prior! As an Australian living permanently in New Zealand it’s hard to decide just where my  allegiance lies – especially during big events like the Winter Olympics. Honestly though, and as cliché as it may sound, I’m in it for the snowboarding and couldn’t […]

Snowboards and Sexism – a rider’s tale

Snowboards and Sexism – a rider’s tale

Sometimes I find it extremely frustrating to be a girl who is intensely passionate about a VERY male dominated sport. There are the days where it’s hugely empowering to be out there smashing sweet, sweet powder turns with the boys, and then occasionally there are the days when you are made to feel like you don’t […]

If not – here’s your heads up!! Unfortunately I don’t qualify to enter as I’m not a resident of the U.S.A , so I thought […]

Wonderful Wye

Wonderful Wye

I topped out at just over 1950m, changed over from ski mode and strapped myself in pausing for a moment to breathe in the crisp mountain air and admire the sheer grandeur of the back side of The Remarkables. Had it not been for the 4 ski tourers heading back into resort, I would have […]

Mountain Time

Mountain Time

The past two weeks have felt like a small eternity, I’ve sat by anxiously waiting, peering at the mountains from my window or standing in awe of the grandeur surrounding me. The freezing mornings watching my breath as I walked to work, and the stunning sunsets were all filled with the thoughts of climbing to […]

First Tracks

First Tracks

The arrival of the very pretty Voile Artisan led to a very busy afternoon. As soon as I had unpacked the giant box,  I was collecting my things to head out the door for a very important mission which looked  a little like this: get skins trimmed buy skin savers buy a new shovel, probe and […]

and so the story begins…

this beautiful beast arrived in the post a few weeks back! literally months of research, planning and overall excitement went into even being able to find this board. due to genetics, I was blessed to be a woman, and a shorty who for the most part could not find a men’s splitboard to suit the […]

I love to hang out on Instagram
