Hey Everyone!

I hope everyone is doing well. So training for Verbier Freeride Week in well underway and this year I want to keep the focus on over all health and well-being. Don’t get me wrong, being vegan in the Alps is tough but it can be done with a little dedication and some inside secrets.

I have one secret weapon that has really helped me start the day off in the best way possible. Strippd Vegan Protein is absolutely delicious and I am so stoked to be working with them to spread the word about the wonders of the products. In a balanced plant-based lifestyle, you get everything you need from natural products and I certainly, stick by the concept that we should ingest the most simple and nutritionally dense meals. That’s why, when I spotted these guys on Insta I was instantly drawn in. This is what they had to say. . . .

STRIPPD is a new range of premium Whey and Vegan protein powders and supplements that are designed especially for women. Created to support a healthy, balanced lifestyle STRIPPD products can help women of all ages improve their overall wellbeing, boost their energy and vitality, strengthen their muscles and bones and nourish their skin, hair and nails!”

Their philosophy about body image and health is absolutely spot on. . . .”The key to maintaining wellness is ensuring everything you put into your body serves you well. The STRIPPD range utilises nutritional super ingredients like yerba mate – a South American plant extract, natural caffeine and immune booster that can also take the edge off hunger and help keep you trim. The all-natural powders contain just five ingredients meaning you know exactly what you’re putting into your body to ensure you get the most out of it.”

Vegan Protein Vanilla Snow.jpgI stick by a few simple tips that I wanted to share them with you.

  1.  Smoothies are the best way to start the day. I am not talking a skinny girl smoothie, I am talking a no holes bared, nutritious and deliciously packed smoothie. I go for a few different combos but my top 2 are: 1, Stippd Protein (my fave is chocolate) with one or two bananas depending how hungry I am, cacao powder, almond milk and Chia seeds. It’s thick and keeps you going until lunch (plus chia seeds are naturally gelatinous, that help flush toxins from the body). Bare in mind this is my pre workout smoothie, it gives you energy so make the most of it, ski, snowboard or head for some activity! 2, Green smoothie with one large granny smith apple, 1 kiwi, a 3inch cut of cucumber, wheatgrass powder, macha powder and coconut milk. You can feel this smoothie doing you the world of good and it’s awesome!
  2. Stock up on root vegetables. It worth it for me to drive an hour down the mountain to head to Aosta as there are some incredible supermarkets where the variety of fruits and veggies is almost like at home. I like to batch make soup on a windy and cold afternoon, a little bit of culinary therapy is really relaxing for me. I loved my latest concoction of beetroot and potato soup; Its warming and really good for you. Try something like parsnip and sweet potato or carrot too!
  3.  Mountain snacks!- I learnt a killer recipe from my pals of raw vegan flapjacks that keep really well and make the best mountain treats. In a bowl, I place the Strippd lean protein, ground coconut, cacao powder, peanut butter, coconut oil, maple syrup and add nuts or raisins if you like. Once you have thick paste you can squash it all into greased tubawear and cut into slices. Just imagine-mid cable car, everyone is starving for an energy boost and you bust out this absolutely mouth-watering treat and help get your friends once step closer to the reality that vegan eating is just amaze balls!

If anyone EVER has any questions about a plant-based lifestyle while working out regularly, please DON’T hesitate to message me on the socials! I would love to chat, swap stories and keep each other motivated.

“I love to see a young girl go out and grab the world by the lapels. Life’s a bitch. You’ve got to go out and kick ass.” —Maya Angelou

Today I wanted to share with you, my most inspiring and empowering female friends. These women are next level. Along the way, I have met them, known them and learnt from them and that is what is truly beautiful. These days, it’s so easy to become competitive and see every female as a “threat”, this notion is ridiculous to me. We should cheerlead one another to ensure that no matter where you are at in your life that you recognise an achievement of your fellow women, then you will surely find that you begin to feel empowered and encouraged. Together we are a team, we are queens, total badasses and YOU ARE “ONE OF US”.

First up: Tijn Vuijk

Tijn is an absolute babe! She has long since been one of my favourite freeride buddies. She has taught me to push myself further, workout harder, eat better and strive to reach my potential. Tijn thinks I am totally crazy and is always there to keep me grounded. I trust her with my life, you get to feel this way when you ride back country with someone you trust, you know they have your back! Right now Tijn is focusing on Yoga, fitness traveling far and wide to ride the most gnarley lines out there! Follow her on Instagram!

I am so glad to know Annika! This season I knew I wanted to find a gal I could ride back-country with, a gal that I could share the amazing experience of freeriding with. Plotting lines, laughing, talking and looking after one another. Although the snow conditions have not yet offered Annika and I the best conditions, I am over the moon she will be killing it in the Freeride World Qualifiers this year! She will be making her debut in Chamonix, a resort she knows well. She rides like a total bad ass and she slays on the daily. This season will be epic as we get to share it together!

Now Kjersti, although I have not had the pleasure to know her in person, she is someone I look up too. For years I have followed her snowboarding journey from freestyle to freeride and everything in between. She is killing it at life. Kjersti oozes positivity and good vibes, even through the medium of social media, I love reading about her outlook on life and how she rides day to day. Kjersti is another cheerleader for women and I love to see that, if she inspired me, she will surely be inspiring others to feel empowered through snowsports! So Kjersti, I hope for a day when we can shred together and if only a smidge of your awesomeness rubs off on my, I will be one happy snowboarder! Follow her on Instagram

OH IT’S ON! BIG TIME!

The calendar is out, it has been unveiled and now the athletes can big their rigorous training regime to ensure they can pip the others to the post and WIN the champions freeride comp.

This year, more so than ever, the FWT team should use every comp stop as a chance to celebrate the lives of the 2 incredible riders that we lost this year, Estelle Balet and Matilda Rapaport. The Freeride World Tour and the Freeride World Qualifiers- that I am a part of are, in their essence, an insanely awesome competition series to be a part of. There is, generally speaking, a lot of LOVE, FRIENDSHIP and GENUINE SUPPORT AND HAPPINESS FOR THE SUCCESS OF OTHER PARTICIPANTS. That is another reason why the freeride world is separate to that of the freestyle. The vibes are great and seen as we a small but buzzing industry, we are about the celebration of this progressive and demanding sport which is FREEride. Estelle and Matilda would want everyone in the FWT and FWQ to continue, with a sense of mindfulness and a new understanding for the elements. These ladies were pioneers and continued to push females in the sport, even to their last days. That is why, this year, let us rejoice that we ever had the honor, the pleasure and the experience of having met or ridden with this incredible women.

So the set up is as followers:

HAMONIX-MONT-BLANC, FRANCE
28.01.2017

VALLNORD-ARCALÍS, ANDORRA
11.02.2017

FIEBERBRUNN, AUSTRIA04.03.2017

HAINES, ALASKA, USA17.03.2017

VERBIER, SWITZERLAND01.04.2017

Follow them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to get the updates when they come in! Then when the dates come along, as I can assure you they will quickly, the summer is already escaping us which is crazzaaayyyyy! before we know it, we will be tuning in to watch the FWT athletes show the world why they are some of the most ore inspiring athletes in the world.

I have made a massive error. There is no going back from it.. . .

That mistake was heading to YouTube and thinking to myself, I will just head to my sponsors page- VAUDE. Then I came across “Freeride Haute Route: Freeskiing Extreme Vaude.” It was a mistake because NOW ALL I CAN THINK ABOUT IT WINTER.

My focus now, more so than ever is on the “All Girls Freeride edit” and how I can keep the fun, practical and extreme aspects of this particular edit from VAUDE, then carry it through to my project. This edit is incredibly beautiful, it’s magical in fact; showing the bond of a freeride team/group of friends and the struggle/euphoria for the best descent!

From peak to peak, crossing my favourite mountain zone, from Zermatt to Chamonix, this edit is well worth a watch to see, not only how amazing this area of the alps is but also how Vaude products are you back county best friend.

” The goal is finding yourself. . . . . ”

Snooks, Madness in the method.

Are you ready for the first of its kind, the UK pioneers of a women’s only ski and snowboard brand, for women by women! We can now say, bye bye butterflies, bye bye poker dots and certainly bye bye to gratuitous amounts of pink! Snooks, is a loud and proud brand, flying the flag for the Made in Britain label.

I wanted to take a bit of time to tell all you lovely readers of the Ski Club GB blog, about these ladies because they are starting something that has been long over due. I don’t want to go on a rant about the boundaries and separations in the Snow sports industry, as Susie Beere and Sophie Kelly are not about that, they are not so concerned about the boys; they are more of the `Boys, you do you`, mind set, Susie and Sophie are about looking after the best interest of us girls while out on the mountain.

 

Who are Snooks and How did they come about?

Sick of buying from the men’s sections, the girls noticed a gap in the market. For myself, I have never been a fan of what I call the “Eurofit”- although I am thoroughly proud of my body, I don’t want my snowboard gear to emphasise the curves, that’s for Friday nights in Leeds. Most of what is available on the market doesn’t, for example, cover your bum, feel loose but comfortable around your chest and hips and worst of all, shows what you ate for breakfast. Snooks is for girls who like a more edgy, cool and relaxed fit, which doesn’t seem to be so readily available for girls.  Then Susie and Sophie had a little conflab and decided it was the right time to start a business together; a company that would focus on the concept of- for women, by women-  and I think these ladies have it bang on so far.

 

What is the drive and why is the “Made In Britain” label so important?

The first range is focussed on fit and that is the essential idea that started the whole concept. Then Sophie and Susie addressed some of the most important factors in fit and naturally, headed off the tailors first. They worked together to design something that’s practical and obviously super cute, products that allow plenty of room for layers underneath while still being flattering and comfortable. They manufacture outerwear in the UK, ensuring their gear is super high quality and they are proud to carry the Made in Britain label- these days this label means a lot more, being more environmentally friendly and promoting that all important British craftsmanship.

Susie says, “We hope to grow as a brand that not only represents the female skiers and snowboarders we design for and break down some gender stereotypes that have passed their sell by date… We understand that most female riders don’t want gear covered in pink butterflies, glitter and pretty flowers. Female riders are about way more than that.” Boom, well said Susie!

 

What so important about promoting women over men?

Sophie says, “It is important to us to celebrate women’s achievements in action sports, especially snowboard and skiing, whether it’s British athletes smashing it on the podium, or your first timer stacking it on a kicker. Hey at least you tried! We want to reflect this in our marketing. Representative not idealistic. . . . ”

I think men have it covered, in the UK in particular, we have some incredible male athletes in the snow sports sector, Billy Morgan, Jamie Woods to name but two, showing the world what British athletes have to offer but now its time for a little female promotion. That Is what Snooks want, as a brand they want to shout about female achievement, however little or big, yayyy for the lasses!

 

How does the Future look for Snooks?

Winter 2016/17 looks like its going to be THE winter for these girls. Now live online with their first line we can get in there and get our outfits for next winter sorted with some awesome prices. These ladies will be touring across the country, so that everyone will get the chance to find out a little bit more about this amazing brand. Watch this space as Snooks- Madness in the Method is coming for you!

Finally, it seems winter has returned to us and I couldn’t be happier. Every thing seems to be falling into place which means its time to get my focus back onto filming and making this all girls edit happen. The lovely Tijn is bringing her Dutch Freeriding butt back to me so we can have a few days getting as much done as we can. I am so looking forward to a fun packed schedule, which I am just refining as we speak. The weather seems to be on our side for the most part, giving us 2 weather windows on Monday and Tuesday- giving us a chance to do some helidrops, ski all my favourite lines and do some very much deserved eating and drinking. With the help of the locals and some of my favourite spots in town and on the mountain, we should be able to get some much needed material, to showcase this incredible town. Tijn will be back in the end of March and then we can continue filming and perhaps expand our efforts to my other top spots of Courmayeur, Champoluc and Gressoney. Until then, check out our schedule and if you are around come and join us!

Today was such a great day I simply had to share it with you guys. We have been waiting with baited breath for almost 3 months for the winter to truly arrive and it seems, finally, it has.

The snow is falling in big generous flakes that have covered the ground with a magical, ethereal white blanket and this meant but one thing- it was time to ride!

Sadly the wind was not on our side today and so we began the day in my apartment with the guys,  talking over options.  As Freeriders, this is a massive part of our day and should be for any back country lovers.  Your group should discuss options and ideas openly well before you hit the mountain. We discussed heading to Courmayeur as they too have enjoyed the arrival of the snow but instead we thought we would go on a touring adventure.
I don’t have a split board at the moment so instead the guys convinced me they would go easy on me and I would follow with snowshoes. We chose a route that lead us around the forest and finally landing us in the sub area of Cervinia named Cielo Alto.

As soon as we began it became clear that the conditions were simply ideal. Steady temperature and no wind in the trees meant for a more reliable snowpack- suggesting that our run down would be just dreamy. The guys didn’t quite go as easy on me as I hoped, I was running off testosterone and my competitive nature to ensure I kept up with them as best I could.  I had sweat dripping down my face luckily the big fat smile I had meant it dripped straight onto the floor and away from my eyes and mouth!  It was hard work in parts so much so I did let out some exhausted sighs but the views were simply wonderful and kept me focused.

The lifts slowly began to open and the wind did die down so we changed our plan to head to the mean area after we reached our goal height. When we got there, with the matterhorn in our sights we enjoyed a short but rad run down.  I did a cliff  drop with a little too much speed meaning I had a knee to the face. There was blood and it was not pretty but I’m told that is referred to as a nature hit which made me feel super cool!

The rest of the day was spent shedding the lines that the tourists hasn’t ruined, until my legs could no longer carry me. Now I’m sat writing to you grinning at the weather forecast. It seems things are certainly looking up.

Peace and love

Positive Body Image and Training Update

So its that time of the weekly/semi regular posts. Things have been crazy busy lately between coming back from Verbier and going straight to Pila to work I am just now settling back into some semblance of a normal life. I am a lazy girl at heart so I have been craving for some me time, just sitting, no small talk no instgram, just either a book or a film and quiet time.
During all the fun days shredding around on the mountain and drinking beers with good friends and interacting with certain people, I have been thinking a lot about this positive body image. By that I don’t just mean me trying to be like my size 8 friends or trying to compete with people in town for who is the best on the mountain, I mean a sense of mental and physical comfort in myself. I have spent years never feeling truly right, truly comfortable.
People say that there comes a point in your twenties when you start to care less and not put so much importance on the opinion of others regarding who you are, but genuinely believing in yourself. That is slowly starting to happen, and my god its a long time coming. I am trying to nurture this part of me that sees me for how I want to be seen. Having the idea and the notion that athletes come in different variations of muscular form, different stature but none the less impressive.
Learning to believe that positive body images comes from mental strength and not just a physical. When that mental strength comes and so will the physical.
I used to think I had to hear someone say how slim I was or how I wasn’t fat or even have a boy acknowledge how pretty and sexy I was, but I don’t care. I just don’t, any more.
Success is coming to me in my career as I have begun to feel less inadequate. I now feel that if you don’t know; how hard I have worked, how ambitious I am, how driven I am, how impressive I am both physically and mentally,
then, well, you do you but you wont have me as a companion. I am awesome, I am strong and I am beautiful so that’s that really.
Training lately hasn’t been anything too exotic. It’s been my regular combination of trail running 2 or 3 times a week mixed with yoga sessions as much as I can cram them in, even if its a 20 minute apres ski session or an indulgent mediation session, I still feel it helps feed my soul.  In terms of on the mountain training, we are trying to ride as fast and as crazy as possible even if I do make rookie errors, like I did today- You can’t ride box on your toe edge. . . . . . I am trying to gather as much technique as I can to employ my #gobigorgohome mentality, readying myself for the comps in all conditions even if that means riding s***f*** which is what is on offer currently.
The next adventure will take me to Artesina Freeride Fest in just about 2 weeks. This will be the perfect laid back chilled environment for me to test some on my new tricks and put my new mentality to the test. Not only that but I am beyond excited to have my awesome roommates coming to compete with me. I know they are going to smash it, but together we can plan lines,talk cliffs and drops and take that mountain by storm.
For now, lovely people, have a great week
Peace and Love
