Last year I didn’t go snowboarding. Or rather couldn’t: during the season my wallet was dry as something that’s very dry, due to the Karakoram expedition the previous summer (and the insurance company fighting my claim for over half a year). Then the season was over.

This year however a friend kindly invited me along, so I was back in Yuzawa after almost two years. I surprised myself by doing pretty okay by my own standards, not crashing too much and turning okay-ish.

Hopefully I can go snowboarding again a few times before the little snow that this warm winter had disappears.
