Prepping the board

I know when the snow season – at least for me – is about to get underway, because it’s nigh on midnight, and I’m on the balcony, cleaning, tuning and generally preparing my snowboard. It’s a battered old Nitro Atlas 64, and I think the only reason it’s survived the 8 seasons I’ve put it through is because I do try to take care of it. Anyway, here’s to another great season, and next week end, when Jim’s Legendary 4-day Niseko Trip (TM) gets under way.
