From the parks and pipes of Tignes, France, Snow+Rock sponsored snowboarder Cerys Allen reports back on the early-season powder.
I’ve been doing the crazy sport of freestyle snowboarding for almost seven years and training with the GB Park and Pipe Team for three years, starting when I was about 12.
I’m loving every moment, travelling around the UK (usually with my dad and sister), doing everything from events and comps to training and coaching.
The latest training camp in Tignes, France, focussed on our riding skills, with some helpful off piste and avalanche training from the locals.
We were riding with some of the UK’s best up-and-coming snowboarders. We were also thrilled to be joined by Olympic Slopestyle Bronze Medallist Jenny Jones!
