It was absolutely amazing to get back ‘on the pony’ so to speak and join my good friends at Mint Tours to coach again on our all girls camp, Mint Women in Kiroro Japan. We got so lucky with the snow and got alot of snow before the girls arrived, just as we were scoping the Mountian. Yew hoooo to say the least. For me it was a really nostalgic trip, getting to ride and coach with two of my best buddies Rachel Newton who now resides in Canada, and Juliane Bray who lives at home in NZ, Wanaka. We had alot of snowboarding history together so it was amazing to creat more magical memories.
Thankfully we all had a fabulous time and all got home safely before Covid arrived in Auz. We also all managed to escape the big bad bug in Japan. Whow what a trip, who would have imagined life would be like this for a while. After having the world at our feet for so long we can now only dream of the next trip.
Please stay tuned for upcoming trips when borders open again.
Until then stay healthy fit and shred til ya dead.
