I’m heading to the Alps…
It’s always a difficult time when you realize the summer is well and truly underway, and your are faced with the impossibly long wait for the winter to come back round, so you can get your shred on again.
Unsatisfied with the reality of a warm-cider-swilling, burnt-sausage-munching, sweaty, flip-flopping summer, I dreamed longingly of the white stuff. It suddenly occurred to me that, whilst the resorts shut down, the seasonnaires reluctantly sidled back to their humble snowless motherlands, and the Russians deserted the fur-trimmed luxuries of Courchevel… somewhere in the highest corners of the Alps… the mountains refuse to succumb to the green grass and luscious lakes that have invaded the pisted playgrounds of Europe for the summer months. There, the die-hard shredders stand, high on the hills, with the lonely goat herd, yodeling my name. Willing me to pay them a visit…
I asked my dear friend, Google, what I should do, and she replied: GIRLIE CAMPS. At first, I thought Google had misunderstood me and was suggesting a week of manicures, fish spa pedicures, mudbaths, makeovers and gossipping about the Kardashians or Bieber’s latest hijinx. On closer inspection, I was thrilled to find it was a GIRLS ONLY FREESTYLE SNOWBOARD CAMP!!! Without hesitation, I yanked out the overdrawn debit card and booked my trip to Les Deux Alpes, France.
I can’t WAIT to soak up the rays and ride in a T-SHIRT!! Speaking of t-shirts, here are some lovely t-shirts from British brand Thump Clothing. They are also on the search for some lady ambassadors, so check out their awesome competition and get involved girls!
I look forward to learning how to kill it in the park and meeting all the other impatient shredder-esses who simply couldn’t live with the prospect of a snow-free summer. SEE YOU IN THE ALPS CHICAS!
