I'm Back

Well after not managing to post for nearly six weeks it's about time I wrote something again. Not that I've really got a lot to tell. It's been a lot of work and not much play, saving up for the autumn training courses. My French is improving though, and I'm in a pretty nice place so no complaints. Winter is definitely approaching however, so more ski related posts will be appearing soon. In the meantime, thought I'd give a mention to a couple of my favourite skiing blogs.

Firstly, the friendly people at the Nutcracker Ski Club in Mt Buller, Australia have a nice site with good photos and lots of info and their season is in full swing whilst up north we are just counting down the days until the snow comes back.

Secondly, Homeboy's Ski Blog is written by a couple of Finns and covers all sorts of skiing topics as well as mountain biking over the summer months. Unlike me they generally manage a post every couple of days or so.

Both these are well worth a visit, so take a look and I'll be back in a couple of days with some more skiing stuff to get in the autumn (i.e. nearly winter) mood.


  1. Hi Ian,
    Thanks for the kind words. Will hopefully get some news on our blog soon too! I believe the season might be starting early over your way, with the weather bringing some of the good stuff. I must try some Northern Hemisphere skiing sometime!
    Take care and chat soon :)

  2. Thanks for linking us too!

    Nutcracker site looks nice...that recent NZ pic - whoa, seems like their season was(/still is) really good.

    Btw. Ian, I visited the Pyreness briefly in late July.Val de Nuria, in Catalonian Pyrenees - Beautiful up there! (some pics in our blog, early August posts, if you are interested?)
