Chamonix snowboarding - january 2010

CJ and I spent 2 weeks in Chamonix - the snow was perfect, the powder was constant, and the skies were blue (well, most of the time ;). You couldn't ask for better weather!

We were joined by Flipside rider Spal, our Bournemouth friends Rosco and Greg, my mum, and a host of other players - who all contributed to make this a fantastic fortnight shredding the powder and exploring the backcountry in the Chamonix valley...
