Le Bent baselayer kit giveaway!

Posted by on Jun 23, 2017

 

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 to ride?

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.

Euro Carving & hard boots: next big snowboard things

Euro Carving

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!

There’s another Jarryd who’s made it in America. He didn’t try out for the Fijian rugby sevens team though and he’s a much better chance than the Hayne Plane of winning an Olympic medal.

Forget footy for just for a moment and start thinking snowboarding.

Jarryd Hughes may not be a multi-code football star but he is an X Games winner in snowboard cross, a World Cup winner and Australian Winter Olympian.

In what was looming as an epic season after the win in Aspen, Jarryd (that’s Hughes not Hayne folks) busted his knee when testing out the site for the Korean Olympic course. The Snow Gauge caught up with him to see where things were at.

While some of out best summer athletes prepare across the other side of the globe for the Olympics starting this week, there’s a whole bunch of winter ones on our own doorstep getting it done.

In case you didn’t know the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea are only 18 months away so I’ll be checking in with some of our top hopes over that time.

This week I chat with the feisty Belle Brockhoff – one of Australia’s best hopes in the snowboard cross.

A World Cup winner for the first time last season Belle looks to be timing her Games run to perfection. She was quite outspoken in the lead-up to Sochi where she was eighth – now she’s looking to let her snowboarding do much of the talking.
