used to post here about my ultimate snowboarding
fantasy of snowboarding Mount Fuji on New Year's
Day at dawn...don't ask me why, just sounded good at
the time.

Champ and I have done the sunrise thing. Overnight at the Refuge de
Cosmiques, just off l'Aguille du Midi in Chamonix, in sight of Mt Blanc.
Up at 5am, and riding as soon as it was light. Took a short hike, and
watched the sun come up in the mountains - amazing experience.

Nice! I'm envious, and I'll get over there someday soon. My sister in
law's family is British and lives in Bristol, England. She's invited me
over...I'll surf Cornwall, etc. and get down to the Alps as well.

I used to get a ride withboardon back of snowmobile up to the top of
MountSnow(not a huge mountain, even for New England, but quite
serviceable) at dawn every morning when I worked there one winter. Saw
the most unbelievable sunrises of my life almost every day. Had to get
to work, but alwasy enjoyed. Didn't really get to take runs til later in
the day. I dawn patrol surfing quite a lot though!

btw, New England has some decent mtns. with, some with more 2,000 ft
(600meter?) vertical. It ain't the Rockies and not even close to the
Alps, but it can be a lot of fun. For example, see a couple of Jay Peak
VT pix he


There's also a huuuuge bowl on Mount Washington, N.H., no lifts,
hardcare hike and a big party every spring:


It's a couple hour hike just to get to the bottom of the bowl.

You see, including the great waves we can get, New England ain't so bad!


-jw ("over 30")

HA! But are you "under 40" :-)

I'm not sure....I seem to have lost track around 32 or 33.

OK, my work is done here for now...must get to "real" work. UGH!!!


Do you want to learn how to snowboard really really well? GREAT!
You've probably heard about this site and are ready to push your
riding to the next level. I'm sure you've seen a lot of trick tips and
articles out there that do very little to help your riding. As you
continue to read on you are about to learn a totally revolutionary
"learn to snowboard system."

We are Matt Belair and Neville Lapwood, two of Canada's top
professional freestyle coaches. Our chosen location is Whistler,
British Columbia Cananda, the snowboard mecca of the world and home to
some of the best pro's, coaches and parks on earth!
