This Thursday, Allan and I will be heading to Apex Mountain in Penticton, BC for his hockey team’s annual outdoor hockey tournament. It also means lots of snowboarding for me! :) We’ll see how well my eyes are doing by then, but I’m hoping I’ll be able to snowboard and at least watch some of the hockey games, even if they are blurry. In case you’re wondering, laser eye surgery went alright — not great as it is still quite blurry, but hopefully is on the mend sooner rather than later. I can see quite well, but reading text on computer screens or books is still very difficult.

In anticipation of heading up to Apex this week, Allan and I put together a fun little movie of last year’s trip to Apex, complete with snowboarding, hockey, and some point-of-view footage with the GoPro. I have to give Allan all the credit for editing the video since I couldn’t do it with my blurry eyes, and for him putting up with my “creative input” a.k.a backseat driving of the video editing :)

So check it out on Vimeo!

Hope you enjoy the video. It’s been quite a while since I’ve put up a snowboard flick on VancityAllie and I am hoping to put up some more before the season is over!

Have you done any snowboarding or skiing this season? If so, where have you gone and what has been your best day?

    I went up to Silver Star a few weeks ago for a fun girls only weekend trip. It was awesome, though I did not take any video :( Watching your snowboarding videos make me realize how badly I want to go back up and take some footage. lol!

    I have been drooling over the GoPro camera, is it worth the money? Have you tried it surfing yet?
