We all have goals, something i never really appreciated until i started riding backcountry. Its frustrating when you dont get to reach them. My current one is the peak just right of the centre of the image. A bit more snow, an earlier start and a bit more fitness and ill be standing on its peak. #splitmoreworkless #altitudebrewing #splitboarding #splitboard #splitboardingistheanswer #earnyourturns #backcountry #queenstown #nz

Saturdays plans were scuttled by injury and a friday night Roof Shout. I packed my gear up for a early saturday morning split but my bed won. Got up just after sunrise today and jumped on my bike for a few km, then on foot until i reached snowline. Original plan was a 1800m peak but the weather ended up being a bit crap so i settled for a 21km round trip of Biking, Hiking, Skinning and snowboarding in 6 hours all from my front door with #2feetandaheartbeat. #splitmoreworkless #altitudebrewing #splitboard #splitboardingistheanswer #earnyourturns #backcountry #nz #queenstown #humanpowered #snow #mountains

Half a year has gone by since I took myself out of the snowboard game. Seems like forever ago being layed up in the hospital room wondering what roads lay ahead, it also seems like yesterday. It's been a well fought journey though, the mental hurdles, the physical boundaries and the spiritual quest to find the deeper meanings in this life. After loosing my hard earned muscles from the atrophy, relearning how to walk, and gaining the confidence in taking chances again. I look back at the time I spent pedaling the stationary bike, imaging climbing mountains again, getting back to a strong state. As I made constant circles on the bike, I listened to interviews with skateboarders for inspiration in smashing their bodies and getting right back at. Whether their body was broken or not, the amount of times you hear doctors tell you, "Your not going to return back to your passion." You ignore their words and keep pushing through, you get right back up and prove them wrong. Over one of the interviews, I overheard one of the skaters talking about never being satisfied with their skating, that they could always do better. I've always felt that with my splitboarding, I've never been satisfied, I could never say what my best day was, what my best run was, or even where my best trip was. For if you're satisfied with your passion, it means your done with it. You mind as well just walk away. I'm not satisfied and I'm hungry as hell to return back and build myself back to where I was. Yet this time around I'm armed with a more compassionate calculated mindset. I'm still far from 100%, but my mind has let go of the past and it's focused on the future, ready to pound out these next few months, for a strong return come winter. I'm still looking for my best day ever, and I hope I never find it...

Five months ago my whole entire world flipped upside down, putting what matters most in my life into a deeper perspective. It has been a wild ride these last couple of months, from fear when I first did the injury, to anger when I left BC and the mountains. I entered back into Ontario and was filled with defeat, that everything I have built up was slipping through my fingers. I couldn't look at myself in the mirror for I didn't know who I was looking into. It took months to feel my inner fire, deep within my belly. Every "new" thing would fill me with anxiety, I would quiet up, and calculate every movement in my head to figure out, if I "can" do it, I then learned to replace can with want. I want to do this, I will do this, I've got this. The one's that have helped push me to this point, know how thankful I am. This time, I want to thank myself; I've spent the last 4 years truly living my dreams. Traveling the world simply, engaging locals, and conquering badass mountains. Yet in those times, I felt I was always searching for something more... yet, what I was searching for, was exactly what I was doing. I just want to explore, that's it. I don't want to be the most badass snowboarder, I don't want to be an influencer or a role model. I just want people to get off their asses and live their lives. The mountains have been the best teachers of my life; they've taught me patience, sacrifice, forgiveness, and the value of hard work. The value of being strong, of being able to handle shit you can't control, yet you stay positive. Mountains have taught me how to literally tip toe on life and death and to be comfortable with it. I'm 32 years old and I've racked more injuries then I can count, mostly to my legs. I'm proud of my injuries, it shows my determination to never give up and chase what you love. Love you homies, keep rising everyone, keep becoming a better you. Strength is within all of us.

The new version of the Snowledge app is live and available for a sneak peek ahead of next season. Why are we releasing it now, at the end of ski season?!? Well, we thought you might ask. Check out our latest blog to read whyβ€”it's totally worth it. Yeeew! πŸ“²πŸ€˜

A throwback to early March and a snap taken on the last day of a Trip and Split to Italy (or Splitaly as we now tend to call it). A great crew, snow and weather made it one to remember. Views were none too shabby either!

This weekend myself and @thr1llhaus had the intention of going camping and riding but unfortunately after Biking, Hiking and Skinning a good 10km i started to feel faint, clammy and feverish and had to make the call to abort. Absolutely gutted we had to bail on the trip but sometimes these things happen.

Winter is just about here and my mind is starting to turn toward
goals for the season ❄️
I'm excited to be back on my splitboard after my knee injury and have a few little objectives in mind - there's a couple of new areas I want to get into that I've captured here, so I might just have keep this one on my desk for extra motivation! πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ—»πŸ‚
Which makes me curious...how do you keep motivated to reach your goals??

The Dirty Dozen... 12 years ago marks one of the most important days of my life, the day I almost left this Earth. The day when my heart stopped and I was shown the other side, after returning my mind was engaged to live out my journey and to follow my dreams. It has been quite an adventure and sometimes I need to take a day to myself and just reflect, the amount of people that I would have never spoken too, hung out with, adventure with. The places I would have never seen, the mountains I would never climb and the friendships I wouldn't have built. 2018 hasn't been an easy year on myself and my family, but life also has it's secret agenda, and sometimes we need to stop fighting and to just be and listen. Fear has built an insane amount of anxiety in my head from breaking my leg in January and yet it's also given me the chance to truly rebuild myself from the ground up. After years of traveling, I've given myself the chance to be still, to slow down, and to appreciate more of what I have, then to feel like I'm wasting time. Humans are the only species that have a concept of time and we worry about it. We stress about it! So, knowing today was my re-birth day, I took a day to myself to reflect, that no need to stress about time. No need to worry about plans, about money, about getting myself to the shape I was. Instead I went and bought myself the bike I've always wanted a @salsacycles Fargo for some awesome adventure bike packing. In reality life is to short to not go for what you want in life. Thanks to everyone who's followed my journeys on this platform, to the people that have touched my life, my family, and to my adventure partner @jorunswild for bringing so much love in this rough year and continuing to stoke me up and push me to the next big adventure! Blessings to all.
