Back in Breck!

Me, my board and the trees

 

So, I’m back in Breckenridge, Colorado for some pre-season shredding and to compete in the Winter Dew Tour in December. It feels so good to be in the mountains again, after a fun summer break, breathing fresh mountain air and feeling the snow under my feet. Today I cruised around and tested some new bindings, worked on my jibbing skills and hit some small jumps to get the feeling on my board back. Check back for more updates and photos soon! On another note, I just got an invite for slopestyle to compete at the Winter X-Games in Aspen in January. I’m very honored to be on the invite list and I’m happy I get to be a part of such a badass event!

Happy winter!

Awesome Ally!

Check out this video of my signature snowboard. Winter is close, so it’s time to think about what kind of board you are going to ride! This is a very great all around board, good in any condition and fun to jib around on! Ps.: the ukulele song is very fitting!

Conscious Celebration with “Opportunity Green”!

Last night I went to Los Angeles to attend the “Opportunity Green” VIP kick-off party and award show. The business conference that is hosted at “The Los Angeles Center Studios” reaches over a period of four days and want to “inspire a collaborative culture of new thinking and unconventional ideas that pushes change in unexpected ways”.

Simply Straws - Reusable drinking straws

As an ambassador for the newly started family company “Simply Straws, I was honored to meet people that care to make a difference. Karen Solomon and Mike Flynn, Co-Founders of “Opportunity Green”, says “we believe in collaboration with individuals and organizations that look to push the envelope by creating a mutually supportive community that is invested in the future of our society and acts as a catalyst for positive change”. I was also lucky to meet Adrian Grenier from the well known TV show “Entourage”. I have to admit that I got a small case of “awkwardness” as he looked me deep into my eyes… ehh, we stopped him to say hi. The actor-filmmaker and his partner, film producer Peter Glatzer won “The Opportunity Green 2011 Eco-Maverick Award” for their sustainable company “SHFT”. The two says “Our mission is to convey a more sustainable approach to the way we live through video, design, art and culture”.

Awarding people that make a difference for our planet!

Other exciting thing at this progressive event was BMW’s new sustainable car the “all electric BMW active”, “The Juice Bar” and their FREE (!) electric car refill stations and “American Apparel” and their “Legalize LA” campaign using only local resources (they even have a fabric at the event).
