A Dream Come True

Ever since I can remember, Japan has always been a place that I wanted to snowboard. Every year,  I would watch snowboard/ski videos and the POW segments that they showed always blew my mind. It looked like the most fun ever and the lightest snow imaginable. Recently, my dream came true and I went to Niseko, Japan with my brother and our longtime friend Sam. Below are a few highlight photos from the trip that I with captions so you can understand what is going on. =)

This first one is pretty self-explanatory. We just landed in Japan!!!! IT'S HAPPENING! =) Thats my brother Conor on the left and Sam is on the right.

The first two days that we were there happened to be quite warm. No big deal, grab the all mountain boards and go rip some fun laps at the local resorts. This was shot at Niseko-Hirafu.

These little gems were everywhere! This probably just looks like a normal vending machine but there was something a bit awesome about it. They offer cold drinks and WARM! You can get your morning coffee, hot chocolate or even warm soup in a can. Might sound strange but I thought it was pretty neat to get warm drinks out of a vending machine.

Grocery shopping. More difficult then you would think, haha. Since there were no English translations on any of the packaging it was quite the guessing game. Pick whatever looks like it might be good. We nailed it probably 60% of the time. =) Too bad they didn't have any Natures Bakery, cause that would have made things a lot more easy for us.

Wherever you are in Niseko, you can always see the Volcano and it never got old. Thanks so much to Natures Bakery for keeping us fueled, especially when we made some bad picks at the grocery store!

We had several days when we went touring in the back country. Here is a shot of me and Sam hiking up and abandoned ski resort that is a 10 minute drive from another resort named Moiwa. We hiked on days when resorts didn't open up the money zones (powder fields) and wanted to get some real pow as opposed to just lapping regular groomed runs. Lots of hours spent hiking, was it worth it?

I would say so! =) This is what I dreamed of. The lightest snow I had ever ridden! This is my heaven, I could do this all day/all year. Snowboarding is when I am truly free, nothing on my mind, truly living in the moment and soaking up every second of it. Two and a half weeks in Japan was the best trip I have taken in a long time. Great culture, amazing snowboarding mixed with great friends and laughs. What more could I ask for? ... TO GO BACK! =)

Thanks for reading and thanks for your continued support Natures Bakery!

SAFE AS Clinics 2014

Winter has begun and that means more and more people will be traveling out in the backcountry. SAFE AS Clinics has just finished up another successful year of clinics at Squaw Valley, Crystal Mountain, Stevens Pass and new for 2014 Copper Mountain! Over 150 women joined myself, Ingrid Backstrom, Michelle Parker, Elyse Saugstad, Lel Tone, Sherry McConkey and Robin Van Gyn at one of the six clinics we offered this December.

After some advice from AIARE trained professionals we decided to switch things up a little and really focus on human factors and the 6 heuristics traits that lead to...


SAFE AS Clinics 2014

As the air gets colder and snow starts to fall skiers and snowboarders start to get excited for the winter ahead. Soon there will be more than just the white patch of death to ski on and more and more people will be venturing out in to the backcountry. For some this may be the first time, for others just the start of another season. Experienced and inexperienced, whatever your level this time of the year means it's time to receive or refresh you avalanche education!

December marks the 3rd season for...


My crazy fun trip to Europe =)

Shot of me in St. Anton just messing around, having some fun "off piste."

I recently got the privilege to go on a snowboarding trip to Europe. How lucky am I? =) The crew was my brother Conor, his girlfriend Tamamra, my trainer and great friend Chris and his girlfriend Coral. Feeling on cloud 9 the second we took off, the first stop was Geneva where we packed up the rental car and headed to St....
