My name is Jools and I'm doing a season in Chamonix.

Yep, I did it, after some (very little...) deliberation, I quit my job as a broker in London to go live in the Alps and ride my board as much as possible. On paper, anyways. Those of you out there might have noticed that the mountains were still dodgy shades of green and brown, the snow's being shy this year, so riding just hasn't happened yet. I had two sort of decent days of powder where I rode down the Dream Forest in Grands Montets and hit some pillows but apart from that, nothing. So I've been trying to come up with various ways to entertain myself...
