So last week I was a very happy girl to see these lovely Salomon boots turn up! I got my stuff ready and headed up the mountain straight away to test them out. The first thing you notice when you put these boots on is how supportive they feel, there is some really comfy padding that goes around your heel which makes a massive difference to the comfort and also stops your heels from lifting up out of your boots. My favourite thing about the Lily’s is how quick and easy they are to do up! You literally pull the inner lining tight and secure it with the small lock and simply push in and twist both of the boas. The brilliant thing about having two boa’s is it means the boot tightens around your ankle and the top of the boot securing your feet in there nice and snug. A little bit of cheeky leopard print thrown in there and you have the perfect snowboard boots! Look out for them in stores next winter :)
This season in Mayrhofen, Austria we have had very little snow and a LOT of sun! I’ve worn my Spy sunnies pretty much everyday this winter! The Beachwood frame is a really nice shape and the lenses protect your eyes even from the harsh rays on the mountain. Check out the different colours and lens options on the Spy website
So I haven’t updated my blog in a while, it’s been so hot out here in Mayrhofen with nearly 20 degrees on the mountain! Here are a few shots that photographer Greg Stevens shot for me a couple of weeks ago. Continue reading

Nikita Chickita 2014/2015 I was surprised that such an awesome board in the powder could also be easy to press and ollie in the park too. It’s a great balance with the pressure rocker that helps your nose float through the powdery stuff and the Aspen strong core that gives your ollies that extra snap in the park.
