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 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!
Next to ski boots I reckon the most important items of snow gear are your baselayers.
If you don’t know by now, a cotton t-shirt and some footy socks won’t cut it.
You need to go quality, you need to go Merino Wool and you need to go Le Bent.
Just lucky we’ve got a kit including baselayer crew, socks and balaclava to give away this week eh?
How young is too young when it comes to skiing or snowboarding?
It is a question I’ve been mulling over on and off for a while.
Then I saw this 14-month old on social media on the weekend and it really made me think.
Laying one down or just laying down – who cares when you’re Euro Carving!
People often ask me, “Hey, The Snow Gauge, what’s the next big thing in snowboarding going to be?”
My standard response went: “Go away heathen snowboarder – I don’t care because I ski”.
Now I can actually reply with a face straighter than what their binding set-up is about to be: Euro Carving.
That’s right my snowboarding friends. Pack away the softails and your triple corks because things are about to get hard all over again!
