This has probably been asked before but has anyone here done a season before? I'd be keen to speak to anyone that has.

when you come home and there's no snow anywhere and reality hits again it is like a big slap in the face

I'd love to do a season too, having lived 2 hours from ski stations for 6 yrs and now being back in the UK where the only snow that comes is shit and just causes disruption ( Evil ) I feel like I need to get back on a board… Feel like I'd regret not doing a season forever if I don't get it sorted in the next couple years

I've had that in mind for a few years too when i was younger, never managed to do that though….still regret it!
If you have the chance, do it! Best thing in life for all the people i met who did it.

Need some new goggles, don't really want to spend over £100, any recommendations? I've currently got Oakley A frames, with the iridium lenses, tempted to just get another pair.

Just got them out tonight and the frame has been cracked badly in storage, gutted! Those go go gadget goggles look amazing, probably a bit out of my price range though.

A frame has a very good price\quality ratio, stick to it
