Ho Ho Ho!

Merry Christmas everyone!

I'm getting a white Christmas here. Hope everyone else is as well!
Mine has been pretty awesome so far. I have the best family, friends, and boyfriend a girl could ask for. I wanted to go home for Christmas but I'm still sick (boo for cold meds not working) and I don't wanna make everyone else sick, especially my dad because of his health problems, from me spreading my germs everywhere. So instead I will spend my Christmas day with my boyfriend and on the slopes (working, of course). It's snowing like crazy and it's actually not foggy for a change, so riding today should be pretty dang awesome.

I might even get a lil Christmas edit done if I can get my camera charged in time :)

Go Lunar!

Tonight will be epic, but this has nothing to do with shredding. The northern hemisphere will be seeing something magical in the next few hours. It's the first lunar eclipse to happen on the Winter Solstice, and to make the moon red, since 1638. It's also the last lunar eclipse of this kind to happen for over 400 years. Pretty epic in my opinion. I'm not that much into science, or astronomy for that matter, but something this rare is pretty darn cool and needs to be recognized. If you want to see it and you're on the East Coast, set your alarm for around 1:40 and be prepared to set up for about 3 hours. The main event will happen around 2:40. I dunno if eclipses are normally this long, but maybe it's why it makes this one so special. Who knows. All I know is that my ass is setting the alarm and I'm not gonna miss this for the world. Hope everyone can enjoy this spectacular show! Or at least a small part of it!

Couch Crap.

It's World Snowboard Day! :) But where am I? Sitting on my couch chugging cough syrup and eating Halls. How lame. I always get one good cold/cough spell a year, and it's happening now. I guess it's good it's early in the season, but it sucks because I planned on tearing up the slopes today to celebrate this awesome snowboard celebration day! It's a perfect day... sunshine, terrain park is finally up, blue skies.

Trust me, if I was physically capable of going out to ride today, I would totally be out there. My throat hurts so bad that I can't even go outside for more than 5 minutes without feeling like someone is stabbing me in my throat. Today is my get better day. Gonna relax and take it easy and hopefully knock this crap outta me so I can get back out on the slopes, and get back to work!

Hope everyone else is out there shredding and enjoying the snow! Shred some for me! :)

Happy Shredding

Shred Shred Shred

I would like to thank Shred Betties for having me as a spotlight shredder last week! I'm stoked! Shred Betties has long been one of my favorite snowboarding websites and they have some awesome content on the ladies of shred :) If you haven't checked out the site, please do!

Beech has gotten dumped on the past few days. 'Blizzard' conditions has brought us about a foot and a half of fresh! It's been so windy it's hard to get an accurate measurement. Thank you mother nature! Rumor has it that the whole mountain will be open by this weekend. I sure hope so! This is the most snow that this resort has seen so early in the season in a LONG time.

Happy Shredding

Epic Opening Weekend!

So this weekend was the best opening weekend ever for Beech Mountain Resort. Seriously. We opened to the top with great snow conditions, fresh pow, fast quad, cheap lift tickets, and lots of business! Mother nature just keeps dumping the snow on us... 16 inches and counting. This season is definitely going to be the most epic season ever, hopefully for everybody! Thanks to La Nina :)

I'm saving up for either a Flip or a GoPro so my buds and I can have some sweet shots this season. Video quality on the digital camera isn't cutting it, to my liking anyways.

For those shredding in NC, I hope all of you had as good of a weekend as I did!
