Hey guys,
Here in Edwards at my new home. All settled in and had my first Thanksgivings the other day.
It was pretty awesome. I have ridden 2 days so far. Just getting the hang back into snowboarding. Another week at Copper then Grand Prix is on the week after, so hopefully I can be back to normal soon enough. For now I'm still getting used to the altitude again.  45 days to go till YOG!
love Alex

Youth Olympics here I come!

Hey all,
So the other week I got a letter in the mail letting me know I've been selected in the Youth Olympic team, -  the only snowboarder from Australia to go. I'm so excited. A couple of weeks ago I went to the press release for the team's official launch. It was sooo cool and I got so many interviews my mouth started to hurt from smiling too much. I ended up on Channel Nine Wide World of Sports on a Sunday, which was pretty amazing because all my friends and family saw it. I'm so excited about it. I have even got a count down on my phone going :) It's going to be amazing and I'm sure to take lots and lots of photos! Here are some photos from the AOC press release.
