I'm 19, 2nd year university student at SFU studying geography and urban planning, I ride grouse almost daily, and my schedule for next semester allows me to go riding almost every day. I try to ride in the day for the most part, but ill be there at night quite a bit this season.
I've been riding grouse the past 8 years, so i know the place like the back of my hand, and some of my posts may or may not include some of those locals only spots. I love riding park, but if theres pow, im there.
i love to snowboard, i think about it day and night, if i am having a bad day, goin to grouse makes me feel better 100% of the time.

i love every type of riding. Whether it be groomers, park, handrails, hiking, pow; but..lesson be learned, too much of a good thing isn't healthy, unless its POW. Pow is always good. Earn those turns kids, don't take those chairs for granted.

The majority of my posts will be about my days up grouse, including the park, local riders, and just lounging around in the chalet. I will also be posting news from the snowboard industry such as some of the new tech that is being progressed such as reverse camber/rocker, the impact of the recession on the snow industry and I will be posting lots of pics and vids for everyone.
