Winter season began!

Shower of snow flakes where are you? It's 8th december and the majority of Italian ski resorts don't have enough snow. Last year it snowed at the beginning of november and we had a lot of powder to shred in decemeber. Unfortunately this year is not the same.
Don't be afraid! Most weather forecast said that degrees are falling down, so get a smile on yout face and let's think positive because snow is coming. Yesterday night snowed in Cervinia and the town of Les 2 Alpes is covered of some fresh snow. In addition, some of the eastern resorts are fitted by artificial snow so it means that slopes will be ready soon thanks to the low degrees.
Weather forecast not always says truth, it varies from day to day so the only thing you can do is hope for some snowing and check webcams daily to see changes.
Im leaving this saturday for Val di Sole, into Dolomiti Alps, and Im so stoked about that. I just wanna shred again and kill some features of the Ursus and Up&Fun snowparks! Im a believer and I know that everything will be prepared and that snow will come.
What about you? Are you ready to begin your shredding winter?

Actually, the season never ends.. it's always snowing somewhere! Riding Les 2 Alpes glacier during summer and ocotber, and going around Italian Alps on winter. That pic was taken in L2A last october during the Enjoy The Glacier (Opening L2A).

An introduction to myself

I'm just a normal person of that so called society. As everyone in this world, I follow my dreams being always positive and believing in myself. I am what I am and nobody will change it, because we have to be ourselves and nothing else. I don't like people influenced by other people, or some of them whose follow fashion or the mass.
I really love to travel, that's the best way to open your mind, discovering new places, meeting new people and learning about different cultures. The world is a great book, of which they that never stir from home read only a page. I'd like to visit all contintents, since I only had visited some countries in Europe.
My life goes around snowboarding, some years ago I felt in love with this sport. That's more than an hobbie, it's a passion, it's something that represent yourself, your life. Snowboarding makes me happy, everything about snowboarding makes me smile.
I study foreign languages at university due to extend my cultural baggage for personal interests, but it's useful for a job future too. Furthermore, there's nothing better than travelling and be able to speak to the natives in their own language and understand how their language work.
Art is a way to express yourself and I really like it. I'm addicted to photograPHy, since I think that all pics that you take have something special, catching the best moments of your life. Through photos you feel emotions. Some years ago I was a 'writer' in graffiti art, but then I stopped. Probably because I wasn't enough interested in it. I like to express my creativeness doing collages, working on crochet and modifying clothes.
In counclusion, I could say just live your life and don't care about what people say, you have to be yourself and nobody else. That's the way to feelgood and remember that believing in yourself is the most powerful source to get whatever you want and to be happy.

What motivates you?

  I enjoy every second of my life, as life is too short to be unhappy. People live their lives too fast and superficially, and therefore they regret it.
  Books are a powerful source of information and inspiration, that's why I used to read them. Once I read "Vagabonding" written by Rolf Potts, who's a National Geographic reporter, where he suggested a different way of travelling for a long time without any plans, also without arranging a large amount of money. He really motivated me since I love travelling and that solves my economic problems. Again, another book changed my mentality due to its way of approaching to the world. First, Mr and Mrs Hicks talk about the law of attraction and how it works in our everyday life, where having a positive mood attracts only positive vibrations to you from the universe. In spite of being angry or annoyed about something, I tried to keep an easy going approach to everything in my life, and that was rewarding.
Indeed, having this positive mood changes the way I look at things. As a result, I never feel demotivated and if something awful happens to me I'm able to overcome it without any problems.
  I love snowboarding even though I sometimes get hurt but that's the price one pays for being successful.
  Furthermore, my parents and my best friends always motivate me in choices trying to be helpful in my needs.
  Finally, various successful people make me want to improve my life and follow my instinct since I heard their speeches or read articles about them.
  In conclusion, I'm utterly convinced that my dreams will come true because I believe in myself and I know what I want. I only have to find the way to get there. Life presents us several difficulties, yet we are full of motivation to overcome them.

Sweet thoughts from the summer..

Wake me up when september ends.. the month between the summer and the beginning of my Uni's courses, full of exams to do. Im thinking about my sweet summer that I spent in Les 2 Alpes staying there for almost 2 months with all my "Family" ... Home is wherever Im with u! My home is Facciosnao Camp.

My summer was like going up to the glacier every morning to snowboarding with my homies and having fun..
Although it was a lil bit cold july, summer on the glacier was so cool. Snow on july was pretty good icy in the morning and then perfect to shred until 1PM while august was a bit worse because of the high temperature.

Apart snowboarding I had really good days chillin' with my friends all around 2Alpes with its amazing places where to go like Venosc or to do rafting a La Grave or starting to free climbing.

Nightlife over there is amusing where every wednsday there's "Gran Miercoles" night and everbody goes to partying. I spent all my nights at Smithy's and Mini Bar pubs to drinking with and meeting some friends ending the party at Avalanche disco. In july I had a lot of fun meeting friends all around Europe who I can meet only there and rarely during the year.. some russian, dutch and spanish guys and chicks and italian friends too. August was pretty worse but however I had fun with my homies.

At the end of the season on 28th of august we left L2A in direction to Hossegor! After a summer working at the camp, my Facciosnao staff and me went to our Surf House in front of the ocean enjoying a week of surfing and chilling...

Stay tuned!

Sunny days in Les 2 Alpes

Sunny days came to Les 2 Alpes, warm temperature and the sun is shining all day long. The glacier is in summer mood with soft snow and sun where everybody can ride easily instead last week was bad weather kinda raining and icy snow.

Everybody is going to kill the snowpark in the morning, chill in the afternoon at the skatepark or at the lake, some people improve their skills on mini golf or trampoline and others improve their relax chillin' at the swimming pool or just taking a walk in the city centre. Life seems to be so happy here, everybody smiles and have fun.. positive vibes.

Nightlife starts at midnight when everybody go out to drink a shot at K.rè or to drink a tasty cocktail at Mini Bar or Smithy's or somebody to Bluettes too, and then party ends at Avalanche disco with some good music and freaky people.

Stay tuned!
