Ed Leigh Interview

This is a great little interview with our friend Ed Leigh where he talks about another of our friends, the brilliant charity ‘Snowcamp’


Lynsey in the middle with Kirsty and Katie.

Wow, we just had amazing news that ex-Our Camper, uber shredder and all round lovely girl Lynsey Ashdown is going to have a wee babber! (for those needing a translation, that means baby!)

It’s such brilliant news we can’t wait to see her teaching her little boy/girl all her rail tricks, watch this space for the mini-Ashdown season edit! ….for now you’ll have to make do with Lynseys rad edit from last winter in Northstar.

Here’s a piece on Coolermag.com on one of the talks at the retreat this year, sounds like yet another amazingly inspirational weekend had by all!
