All downhill for me
I want to give some big big props to the US Snowboarding team! Yes, I have been sucked into the games as well, and I now have a new appreciation for Curling (though, honestly, this is something I’d LOVE to try this sport with my bro’s after a few beers) and Johnny Wier (you go boy!) and for Shaun White and his fashion sense.
That kid is so much more than hype but in addition to his AMAZING skills that, he looked GREAT kicking ass on the pipe.
Seriously. I’d wear this on the slopes. I’ve been skiing since I was pretty little and have recently picked it up again. As is it’s hard enough to find a good ski/board jacket (I tried snowboarding once and have NEVER (ok, smirk, maybe not never) been so black and blue in my life) that fits right and isn’t too girly.
Right now I wear an EMS mens’ jacket that is warm and fits okay, but…the sleeves are too long and And snow pants? I LOVE the “jeans-type” snow pants, and have a pair of North Face Freedom pants, and though they’re not mock jeans – they work/look the similarly, and are totally comfy, warm, waterproof, and look great.
I used to be skilled enough for black diamond runs, but then I realized that I mostly liked the scenery and enjoying the run, not thinking too much about technical accuracy so that I didn’t fall off the side of a mountain. As I got older I started developing a huge fear of heights (but am still ok on the chairlift) so um, yeah, I mostly stick to really long green trails, you know the ones that take 40 minutes to get down……ok. Now I want to blow off cleaning my apt and readying it for the Sartoriallove and go skiing on Sunday…who’s in?
