    Bills Snowboarding Trip | Megève Ski Resort , French Alps - February 2015

     

    One of our team at OceanSports has recently skived off work for a week to Megève in the French Alps. Not only was it bluebird the whole week, we managed to get our hands on next year’s Burton custom for him to shred!

    Bill came back in the store stoked out his mind about Burtons Flying V board and Bonfire Tanner Jacket he was fashioning saying,"It was outrageous loving the moguls (a bump of snow) of course, a very quick edge change and the flying 'V' just tears through tight turns making terrain such as the trees and steeps seem like green runs, when its dumping the rockers sits so sweet on top."

    The Tanner jacket has a fine tailor fit in a rich stretch Oxford fabric which is great for providing freedom to move and keep you dry, along with its fleece lining that’s super warm!

    His trip sounded quite eventful, spending the first two days at a family’s home, praising a nutritious organic breaky and the only problem being, a 50 minute train then coach journey from Megève.

     Next Bill moved in to a hotel right bang next to the lifts for a further six days, however not without difficulty at the train station! “You’d think they'd run a bus for every train arriving on one of the busiest weeks of the season, but no! After finding out we had two and a half hours to wait when we wanted to be on the slopes, we decided to hitchhike on the entrance to the mountain road using a cardboard sign. We held out for 15 minutes before getting picked up, we were super lucky I don't think my snowboard would have fitted into someone's two seater Maserati!"

    In all Bill said it was the best week he's spent riding with great weather and good snow plus, a very cheeky free hotel. The board images are still under wraps so enjoy these sneak peaks of what the 2016 season has in store on us.
