  • When visiting the 2012 Snowboarding World Championship slopes last week I made note of this old school hippie.

    He was making stairs besides the half pipe. Carefully crafting each step with his chainsaw.

    Among all the hipsters, loud music and sponsored people. I had to ask him. And the answer was: Yes, of course I'm going all the way up.

    While the young participants kept on training going all the way down.
