The weather wasn’t really helping, so we ended up going to Queenstown to get exxxtreme on the luge. Here’s Bruno super stoked on the Gondola.

But … but …. we got there and the luge was close because of high winds!!!. Can’t believe it, the windy ruining another day. So we race down the course … not as exciting as the original, but it was pretty hilarious.

We waited and waited but the wind didn’t stop. All I got is this postcard view of Queenstown.

I was so sad that I had to eat a pizza from Hell’s. The all thing. Mmmm … I’m hungry again.

Session at Vail Pass

The Board Cartel boys called me for this session at Vail Pass, sunny weather with fresh powder in April. Matt at jump number 1, I-70 in the background.

And now is Jon on jump number 2.

Here you can see Matt and Jimmy at jump number 3, and the landing of jump number 2 in the background.

I have seen this so many times this season, but it never get old … we call this CachipĂșn in Chile. CA – CHI – PUN!.

Fixing a sled

Yeap, looks like a good project. The good thing is that I’m just helping, cuz I have no idea how to do it … but I’m learning a lot. Polaris RMK 700 with a blown out suspension and track in half … length wise. A some other details.

This has nothing to do with photo or snowboarding … it’s just amazing, it’s the “Really Big Universal Remote”.
