I keep blabbing about how important pre season training is for sledding, let alone any sport and I've had quite a few emails from girls asking what I do to prep for the season... Here it is ladies! Click the photo to read the article...

You've got that right Toyota! Mountain Adventure is my business... And my passion!
Havn't been out in the mountains for a bit? No problem! Ill be keeping you guys updated weekly with ride reports for the Pemberton, Whistler and Squamish area! Here is the first one of the year!
Julie-Ann Chapman and She Shreds Mountain Adventures will be at the ISSA on Nov 22-Nov 23 2014!! She will be doing a presentation on women and snowmobiling one day and a presentation on cold weather outdoor survival the other day! Come and sit in on them if you live in the area! Lots to learn and some sweet prize giveaways as well!!
So stoked on Klim's new colours and styles! Received a couple boxes full of amazing gear this week from them. Lots of goodies for all the She Shreds Mountain Adventures clients this season! But lets talk layers here! The photo below is my personal favorite suite for this year. The womens Alpine parka (non-insulated) and the mens Powerxross pants (non-insulated). Why do i pick non-insulated stuff? Well let me tell you! I like to layer it up! Riding in the mountains we are constantly standing, moving and jumping around on our snowmobile. We get hot very fast. Thats why I like to layer it up. Lets say its about -10C outside my layering choices for that day would be for a base layer the Lady Tach LS T, followed by the Ladies Sundance Shirt then the Alpine Parka. That would give me the option to shed a layer if I get too hot and put it back on once I cool down at lunch or something. Don't get me wrong, if its colder outside I will probably be wearing my other suit - the womens Allure Parka (insulated) and the Allure bib pants (insulated) with less layering - probably just the Lady Tech LS under the jacket (I may consider putting the Sundance shirt in my pack for additional layering incase). Ill be wearing the Adrenaline GTX boot and Powerxross gloves as well!
Honoured to be part of such a rad team. FOX you guys produce the best performance shocks and have the most talented athletes in every sport. Very stoked about the Fox Zero C2 for my rear suspension this year!! Thats right, no need to change the skid now!! Boosh!!!!
