Scotty James -took all before him in 2016/17. Now for the Olympics.
If you want to know what Scotty James has been up to this past six months, even he says it’s best not to look at his social media.
There’s Barcelona, boxing poses and a boat in Miami that could be straight from The Lonely Island film clip.
“My Instagram probably says otherwise – that I have been having a good time but I have been working really hard,” he says with a chuckle.
The last time we hit 3m in Australia Right Said Fred were topping the charts with ‘I’m Too Sexy’. Bless.
It’s rarer than a Melbourne premiership, a Wallabies win over the All Blacks and a funny Adam Sandler movie.
Don’t know what I am talking about? It’s a three-metre base of snow in Australia – something that hasn’t happened in a quarter of a century.
But, if the stars and Snow Gods align, it just might do it this season.
It’s a work in progress but with Perisher dropping out of building a Superpipe in Australia, there’s some decent prospects of Falls Creek filling the void.
And who is behind the push? None other than our own Scotty James.
The X Games and two-time world champion is working with his own sponsors (including Falls Creek) to try to make it happen.
The Snow Gauge may be a skier but it’s time to share the love around to our one-planked brethren.
This week, thanks to our good friends at Wilderness Sea ‘N Ski at Liverpool in Sydney, we have Technine Young Gun in a 155cm snowboard to giveaway.
It’s a cracker of a board and all you have to do is be a subscriber to be eligible to win!
It’s school holidays, so with the help of our friends at XTM, we’re (cue Robbie and Kylie) doin’ it for the kids.
It’s a real pleasure to be able to give away a full kit worth $400 for your little or not so little one. As long as they wear kids sizes we’ll get your boy or girl covered from top to bottom!
The goods are great (read on for a little more detail) but the fact it’s direct from an Aussie company should make you feel warm and fuzzier still.
And not just any Australian company but one that has a significant track record in helping our athletes, the environment and those less fortunate than most of us who get to enjoy skiing and snowboarding.
