Backcountry pow March 4, 2010 by Shelly Gotlieb (Snowboarder)

So I’m in desperate need of some powder after my break from shredding so we (Dillon, Matto and I) take an ole trip down south to Red Mt pass. Its a gnarly road pass in between Silverton and Montrose in Colorado, lots of the jumps from you favourite shred movies are filmed there …Lame, Afterlame etc you just park up and walk up off the road and find the spots to build.

slaaaaaash!

So trips like this are usually kept to a minimal amount of peps as you don’t wanna have people bombing out ya landing of ya jump but this trip got a little different. Matto had some friends from OZ turn up in town and he didn’t want to bail on them so he brought them with us, 8 dudes in a hotel room 1 jammed packed car, its was interesting to say the least.

So what to do when your hurt? February 27, 2010 by Shelly Gotlieb (Snowboarder)

So if you ever wonder what snowboarders get up to when they have some down time …….. well looks like I can answer that question for you.

I had some time off riding after my eXtreme crash I had at the eXtreme Games and I started to struggle with filling up my days soooooo I found this amazing puzzleame ‘wolf song’ which has become the past time of my household.

Best puzzle ever....'wolf song'

X Games 1 – Shelly 0 February 2, 2010 by Shelly Gotlieb (Snowboarder)

Hi guys, Sorry I haven’t updated to recently, Ive had a wee bit of a rough week. Aspen and the X Games were going great until the day of competing for me. I fell both my first 2 runs in the slope-style and really needed to land my last, I had a great run going until the last jump. I’m not sure what happened but its got something to do with rider error, I took off wrong on the last jump (70 foot) and ended up crashing in a marvelous fashion.

I got support cards! pretty cool

I was knocked out and taken to hospital where they cat scanned everything. Im OK, I have bruised lung and a sore head, pretty good considering, I think everyone thinks if I was from anywhere else other than New Zealand it would of been way worse as we apparently are pretty tough down under.

It wasn’t the way I wanted this week to go but alas stuff like this happens and you cant get too bummed about it. I’m stoked for Jenny Jones who took 1st place, Jamie Anderson 2nd and Jana Mayen 3rd (if she landed her cab 9 on the last jump I’m sure she would be further up the podium) SICK for pushing women’s snowboarding! Cab 9s!!!
