Natural Health: Cayenne Pepper

So after stumbling upon the Health Benefits of Cayenne Pepper, I remembered the bottle of organic cayenne pepper supplements I bought a few weeks ago. I had no clue what I was buying, I just saw a unique herbal supplement on sale (it really was dirt cheap) and figured 'what the hell, it can't hurt me'. It's really amazing how much natural herbs can help us with daily ailments. Instead of buying all this over-the-counter artificial bullshit, we need to revert back to our natural ways and use what Mother Nature gave us.

Seriously, check out that link, or just google 'health benefits of cayenne pepper' and prepare to be amazed. What's awesome is that there are THOUSANDS of other herbs and natural plants and things that can cure any possible disease and sickness that can affect us.

Roots Rideshop Skate Session

Incase you didn't know, Roots Rideshop at Beech Mountain Resort built a 5 foot half-pipe over the summer. And incase you haven't seen it, it's pretty freakin' awesome. I'd never been on a mini ramp, half-pipe, anything like that until this one. I still suck at it and bust my ass quite often just doing simple stuff, but I'm slowly getting better. I'm hoping that being able to skate in the summer now will help me with my snowboarding in the winter.

Anyways, Saturday was our staff meeting for ski school, and after the meeting a few people went to skate. The video below is our friend John skating with my GoPro. Check it.

Sunday FUNday!

Even though it was so shitty, it was so good we had to come back for more.

Here's Sunday's footy...

Opening Day @ Sugar

Saturday Sugar Mtn Resort opened up with one whole run, and guess who was there to shred it all day! :)

Here's a vid of the action.

Well Sugar Mountain Resort, Cataloochee Ski Area, and App Ski Mountain are all making snow... but who will be the first to really open? Cat has announced they are opening tomorrow at 8:30am... and Sugar will also be opening tomorrow as well, although they haven't stated a specific opening time yet. I'm sure at 8am tomorrow morning Sugar will announce they are open and win the 'race to open' bragging rights. Yeah, the resorts like to play dirty too. Haven't heard anything about App yet... I don't think they really plan on opening this weekend, just maybe work on building a base for their opening date next weekend.

Anyways, I'm freaking STOKED to get to ride tomorrow! I've been waiting for this day since our spring park melted in April!

I plan on taking the GoPro, so get ready for a video of our first day of the season! :)

What do I do when I have a sweet craving and I'm thinking of snow?

Snowflake cookies of course! :) Man oh man are they yummy too.
