I got some snowboarding in this week for the first time in a long time and man was it ever amazing.

For the people who don’t know… I actually took some time off from snowboarding to get some things in life sorted out.

It was well worth it, but I’m rusty as ever.

I plan on getting better at park riding this year because I’ll be spending the majority of my time in Ontario where there isn’t mountains… just mostly park riding.

So as long as I’m here in Ontario, I might as well try and take my skills in that discipline to the next level.

Then around march-ish, i’ll be heading to Peru where I’ll be making that my new home for several months. I plan on doing some surfing, adventures, soak in the culture and just live.

Then after all of that, i’ll be heading back to Whistler, BC for snowboarding and to live in the mountains for a season…

… Basically a busy year worth of travels.

I’m able to do this and bounce around where ever I want because my income is all internet based.  As long as I have an internet connection I can earn money online.

But yeah…. I grabbed some of my best snowboarding footage over the last couple of years and threw it in an edit.  I wish I had some more footage of myself… but I don’t.

I guess when I move back there in the fall I’ll have to make up for it.

Enjoy the video.

It’s nothing too amazing… but you’ll get a taste of what snowboarding is like in the mountains and a little peak into my world.


Do you snowboard or ski at all? Have you ever tried it, any crazy stories?

Let me know… I love snowboarding I’ve been doing since I was 3, I would love to hear it.

Also if you have any videos of yourself skiing, leave it in the comment section below, my viewers and I would love to see it!

    hey ) pretty cool video!
    tell me please Whistler is it Canada ski resort?

    • Joe Seeber

      Thanks, yeah Whistler is a Canadian ski resort… the 2010 winter Olympics were there. I got to experience the games, it was one of the best experiences of my life.

      • rosco b

        re: you @ the olympix … BOO! Canada hockey (both) = Gold. USA (both) = silver. “we” ‘ll get you this time!

        • Joe Seeber

          How dare you say that…

          I actually have a video of myself in Whistler Village watching the hockey game. I’m completely freaking out, you might find it a little funny.

          That’s one thing Canadians care about is their hockey… we don’t care about any other sport in the Olympics except for hockey. We need to win it…. if we don’t… it’s like embarrassing.

          There might be some swear words and I’ve might of been intoxicated. Some of the best times in my life.

            Very cool video, enjoyed watching and what an excellent post, Love it!

  • Addie

    What an incredible life you have. I envy the courage you had to set it all up the way you did.

    I enjoyed the video. What were you holding out in front of you? Boy, that was an incredible ride.

    • Joe Seeber

      Hey Addie,

      I always tell people that you should be putting pieces in place in order to start living your dream lifestyle…. because if your not then you’re building someone else’s dreams.

      That’s what I did, it started with an idea of the lifestyle I wanted to live then I started putting the pieces together to live it. I won’t lie, it wasn’t easy… but it was well worth it. But the truth is, nothing good in life comes easy, everything takes work.

      I had a GoPro attached to a ski pole, it was actually hard to ride with because it had a lot of weight to it, so I had to re-adjust my balance points. Plus my arm would get extremely tired holding it.. haha.

      Thanks for the comment, and thanks for the compliment.

    Wow! You’ve inspired me to finally have another go at snow boarding as an adult!! Do you have any tips for a wake boarder? Love your blog ;)!

    • Joe Seeber

      You should totally snowboard! It’s the best!

      Hmm tip’s for a wake boarder… First things first, I would say is get butt pads… I think it’s essential for anyone learning how to snowboard because you will be falling on your ass.

      With me personally, whenever I show someone how to snowboard… I’ll spend 20 minutes really explaining to them how the mechanics ofs snowboarding works. Then when we finish going over the theory part… then I’ll take the person up and show them 1on1, etc.

      It’s really important to understand how you always need to have an edge up, how turning works, how stopping works, etc. If you can understand the principles then it will make it easier to apply them when you start snowboarding. I think most people when teaching don’t focus on that.

      So when you try snowboarding again, just try and find someone who is actually knowledgeable… and get a real good understanding of the principles of snowboarding before you actually strap in and go down the hill.

      It will save your body… I promise.

      By the way, I love your blog as well.

      The post on Bali, you’re photos are awesome… I plan on going there at some point in the next couple of years. I have lots of friends from Canada visit there every year for surfing.

      • alexiaboland

        Oh thank you so much! Your tips make complete sense! And yes butt pads sound like a must, especially if there’s no water to break my fall! Hopefully I can find an instructor as clear as you are! I want to travel to Canada next year so I think that will be the best time to learn :)
        Thank you so much I am so glad you like it! I am still finding my feet with it, but love to write so I’ll just keep chipping away at it when I can :) Yes you definitely have to visit Bali- it really surprised me! And surfing? That’s amazing!

  • Corandene

    Wow, great video! I have skied but snowboarding scares me slightly as you don’t have the poles for support!
    Have a blast in Peru, look forward to reading about your travels! (:

    • Joe Seeber

      Thanks, both sports have their advantages and disadvantages. Thanks, yeah I will definitely will be blogging about it, making videos, etc. Thanks for leaving a comment!

  • Jonathan Kumar (@jkooms)

    Looks good! Heading to Utah tomorrow.

    • Joe Seeber

      OH man… that will be amazing. Hopefully you’ll get some pow. I want to try Utah pow, I have ridden light pow, but nothing like Utah.

  • ros

    whoa, dood! good for you — that Peru ‘thing’ is enviable. and i’ve always liked B C …

    • Joe Seeber

      Thanks boss, yeah Peru excites me but also scares me.. because I’m going to go on an Ayahuasca retreat. I don’t talk about it much, but it’s something I’ve been wanting to do over the last couple of years… I definitely will be talking about it and making a video about it, etc.

      Yeah B.C, is amazing, there’s soo many amazing places… it’s why I have a hard time settling down.

      Thanks for the comment.

    Awesome, love the winter sports!!!

  • Michele

    Happy New Years Joe! Thanks for sharing that clip. It’s been about seven years since I snowboarded at Whistler. That’s such a beautiful place. Your post and video inspire me to dust off my board and hit the Alps this winter. It’s been too long since I last snowboarded. Thanks also for following my blog. I hope it provides you as much enjoyable as yours does to me.

  • kristinawebb

    I haven’t been skiing or snowboarding — no snow here in Florida to try it! — but I have been wakeboarding. The first time I went, I had no idea my legs were so strong. It takes a TON of core strength to pull it off. I haven’t been in a long time, but if you ever get a chance, you should definitely try it.

  • D. G. Platt

    Thanks for visiting my site. Tried snowboarding but can’t seem to get the hang of it. My attempts did provide my grandson with more than a few laughs.

  • Arif

    awesome video! the video looks cool with the gopro! can’t wait to take mine out on an adventure!

    ah you are going to Peru? always wanted to go there. Main reason is to visit the Machu Pichu

  • Raynen

    Hey Joe, awesome footage! :) I’ve skied Whistler/Blackcomb and love it, but mainly grew up in the Rockies (Sunshine, Fortress, etc.). Best skiing I’ve done so far though, in North America, has been Fernie, B.C. Triple black diamond runs mostly and amazing amounts of powder – it just bursts in front of you (light as a feather) and if you wipe out its like falling into a cloud. Looking forward to seeing more of your adventures!

  • Cronadian

    I miss the beauty of snow-covered Whistler!

  • shiroknowes

    Wow wonderful, love to learn snowboarding ! I only just one time put skies but I wasn’t good at all I went to the baby piste and after when I came down I couldn’t stop, an disaster :) !

  • Nevaeh

    I appreciate you sharing this blog. Really Cool.
