Hey everyone! I’ve been cruising around on Boardworld for quite sometime now, finally made an account.

I’ve just finished up 2 years in Whistler BC, currently living south of Sydney on a working holiday visa. Looking to make a couple trips out to Thredbo, Perisher or Hotham at some point.

Just saying hi! smile

Hello!! Come ride with me at Hotham or Falls!!

Come up to Perisher on the 22nd or Thredbo 23/24th!

...and yeah, I’ll ride hotham or falls too! wink shred

Hi girls,
Just signed up.
I’m Michelle.

Where do you live? I live in Perth.

Do you snowboard, skate, and/or surf?
Snowboard 8 years (started at 37!) and seriously addicted.
Bought skis last year in an attempt to go Bi but keep defaulting to the board…walking in ski boots sucks!

What is your “home” mountain/beach/skate park?
In Aus, Thredbo.
NH, Niseko.
But I love to explore new places…it’s a long bucket list and I’ve got less years left than most/all of you to tick them off.

What made you join Boardworld?
Recommended by Jeremy.  Been a Member of a few other ski forums for a while.  Had no idea a group of boarder gals was hiding out here!  I’m keen on equipment discussion and I am constantly on the look out for new board buddy’s - nothing like ripping it with great crew. smile

Tell us something interesting about yourself:
Dunno about interesting…
I’m Mum to 4 boys and a ring-in. (23 to almost 15) and they all shred!  I go alright but I’ll be damned if I can catch any of them.  In between parenting duties hubby and I chase snow as hard as we can, often having to tag team it so someone is around for the boys.

* and share a photo too!
Couple of weeks ago in NZ - Black Peak.  Loving life.

Where do you live?
Currently living in Whistler. Originally from Victoria (right near Falls/Hotham), but spent the last few years in Canberra.

Do you snowboard, skate, and/or surf?
I mainly snowboard, but also really like longboarding. I got into skating a mini ramp back when I was in Aus, but I’m not much of a freestyle skater right now! I’ve tried surfing a couple of times, managed to stand up, but didn’t really get into it. I didn’t grow up anywhere around a beach, so I have no ‘water’ sense…it doesn’t come naturally to me!

What is your “home” mountain/beach/skate park?
I consider a few mountains to be my ‘homes’! So, I grew up riding Falls Creek mainly, but actually got married at Mt Hotham (went riding the morning of the wedding, which was cool). After spending the last few years in Canberra, Perisher really became my home mountain and I’ve even had the opportunity to do a fair bit of back country touring/split boarding across the Kosciuszko range.

Now I’m living in Whistler, it will be my home mountain for a while!

What made you join Boardworld?
My husband has recently connected with Jeremy here and they suggested I sign up. I’m always keen to chat with people about riding and the mountains in general. It’s something I’m pretty passionate about!

Tell us something interesting about yourself:
I’ve been riding for around 10 years now, but really only seriously for the last 6 or so, where I was able to ride 40+ days a season. I’m an APSI level 1 instructor, but will be looking to get my CASI level 2 in Canada this year.
I’ve been lucky enough to snowboard in a lot of places including all resorts in Aus, a lot of the major ones in NZ, and also Japan, US and Canada.
With my current job at Whistler Alpine Guides, I’m really looking forward to advancing my knowledge of the backcountry and mountains in general. This season, I’m looking to complete both my Avalanche Skills Training 1 & 2 certification, as well as crevasse rescue/glacier travel. I ride mostly all mountain freestyle/park, but I’m really keen to develop my big mountain/powder/tree riding skills, so a lot of splitboarding will be going down I think!

In addition to that, I’m a bit of a gear junkie/addict. I own way more boards and gear than any sane person should admit to. So, if you’re in the same boat, perhaps we should start an ‘snowboard gear addicts anonymous’ or something…

Backcountry chutes in Aus

Kirkwood, California

Rock drops in Aus (some of you who know Perisher well, might recognise this spot wink )

My current board collection in Whistler (I also have 3 back in Aus)
