(08/04/05) - Watch THE snowboarding video!
FINALLY I can put this page up. Taken a while to get the pics and vids off of Matt, but it was worth the wait!
9 Of us guys went, so you can probably imagine the sort of shiit that went on:
(Left to right - Shoes, Harnish, Pete, Matt, Neale, Stef, Myself, Crazy and Mark - on Monday night pub crawl)
The best thing was having it snow the whole way (providing some nice scenery) and us knowing it was dumping on the mountains:
The snowboarding itself proved to be fantastic, with Crazy and I finding some gorgeous off piste powder to play in, knee deep in places:
And as you can see, some fantastic weather for the week after it finished dumping:
View from highest point in Three Vallees, from Glacier at Val Thorens:
One of the major features of this holiday was having fun in general. Highlight was the Monday night pub crawl we went on, carnage ensued, including us building a human pyramid on one of the nightclub floors (I dunno who the chick was getting on the top):
We got tanked before the event as well, drinking heaps of beer, well, except for Pete and Crazy who ordered these gay looking drinks (Crazy's was a virgin drink too, highlighted in the menu below. As long as I've known Crazy, he still makes me shake my head in disbelief at times):
Now, it might just be me forming a completely invalid correlation here, but Crazy and Pete were the very same two who tried to pick up the Man/Woman on my other page on the same trip!
Hmmm, I'll let you form your own conclusions about that one.
Anyway, back to the snowboarding, here's a couple of crazy jumps crazy and I did:
I call this one "The Monkey":
As you can see from that last photo, Crazy's attitude to going over jumps is "FU<K IT, go hard and if you die at least you'll look cool on camera!!!"
Well, that's about all the pics I can be bothered posting, well, except for the following two which Stef doesn't want me to post.
Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the most chronic case of hat hair I've ever seen in my life. I actually saw a small child break down into tears and hide behind her Mummy screaming "MONSTER, MONSTER" when she saw this:
Adele, you didn't need to worry about Stef running off with any women on that trip, believe me.
AND NOW FOR THE SNOWBOARDING VIDEO!:
Make sure you watch it with sound! Otherwise it won't be half as good, wait until you get home if necessary, it'll be worth the wait.
Enjoy it, I personally think it's my greatest video to date :-)
Let me know what you think of it!
