Last week I spent 8 days in Saas Fee. It was awesome to be back in the mountains, back on skis and catching up with a lot of the crew! After missing most of the winter, I have been working very hard towards a summer back on skis for the last 6 months. I am very lucky to have the support I have had and it has been tough. However things worth having dont come easy. Saas was the first trip, taking things mellow and building back in the air and the half pipe. Check out the pics bellow. Next up I am heading down to New Zealand for the rest of their season which I am so excited about!!!

Recently a new UK based ski clothing company asked me to review their new jacket. Overall I was pretty impressed and liked the jacket! Check out the review I did and link to their website bellow...

The last couple of weeks in Breckenridge have been really sick! On Christmas day I took my first run back in the pipe and since then have been able to step things up slowly and surely. The last couple of days doing tricks have felt amazing and everything is almost back to normal with the knee. Here's some pics and vids from the last week!

I have had an amazing first week out here in Colorado, after lots of hard work over the last few months, being back on skis, catching up with loads of friends I haven't seen in ages and with a busy season planned I couldn't be happier right now. I have had to be really disciplined and resist hitting the park with the crew as it is important to take things slowly and ease the knee in gradually. However, it has felt really strong and everything is well on track. Tearing down the pistes and exploring the mountain has been a lot of fun as the tiniest progressions feel amazing! I have spent the first week staying with the British Team set up in Frisco which has been cool and now have my family coming out to Breckenridge over Christmas. Here's some snaps from the first few days...

My summer of rehab and being at home is over and I have since moved back to Manchester where it has been back to the full on lifestyle. Getting through University assignments, gym, knee rehab, catching up with friends and trying to get everything prepped for the winter. I love being busy and productive so I am really happy about this! It seems the only way to respond to setbacks is to get your head down and work harder through it.

I am just coming to the end of a long summer of rehab and more gym work than I have ever done before. At the end of last season I capped off a tough year by joining the ever growing list of people who have snapped their ACL and underwent major surgery in May to reconstruct it. This injury can be frustrating but I knew what to expect and luckily everything has gone really smoothly so far. I am very lucky to have had the support I have had and need to thank everyone who has helped me. Particularly my family, friends, British Ski and Snowboard, Function Jigsaw and TASS. I am now at the 4 month mark, have just had a follow up with the surgeon and been told I am well on track to be skiing around November time which is a really quick recovery and means I should be able to have a really good season! Still lots of work to do though but here's what I have been doing all summer...

After my injury in December I decided to spend the rest of my season in Colorado for some spring skiing rather than head to Europe for comps. The first week was bluebird everyday and the parks were pretty much empty! I was getting my tricks back and skiing really well and myself, Anna and Woodsy managed to get a lot of filming done over the week. Check out this teaser for an edit im going to bring out in the next couple of weeks...
