Snowboarding Photos

Here are a few holiday snaps from recent and not-so-recent trips. Unfortunately snowboarding is far too much fun to stop and take photographs too often, but here's a small sample.

Switzerland

Ahhh, the Swiss Alps. The current weekend playground of choice.

Canada

In 2001, Tim, James and Tony rode the snowy waves of BC, including Cypress, Grouse and of course Whistler:

This is why they call him the BAT

California

In 1999 a few lucky people took a trip to California, and found some lovely snow there. Here's a few pics courtesy of Gringo and Ricky:

of deep snow and loss of balance

Note the poise, balance and grace as Weeble
soars high above the piste below

Just a little snippet from Livigno, with a little help from computer wizardry:

Canada 98

The following photos were taken when Tim and Foxy went to visit Tony Sock in Vancouver, in early 98.

What a sunset

with a gorgeous sunset for a backdrop

to the amassed crowd

Tone

Tone trying desperately to look at the camera
without running into it

Whoops

It would be nice to claim that Tim landed this one,
but it doesn't look very likely, does it?


Nice...

So that's a little selection of pictures, but if you're still not clued up on why on Earth anyone would do such a ridiculous sport, read the Numpty's Guide to rid yourself of outdated prejudices, or you might like to check out some Swiss ski resorts or Italian resorts if you're in the area. Or go up to the main Snowboarding page.
