The summer in Europe has finished and winter is fast approaching. Here at Vivid Snowboarding we are getting geared up for our second winter and already looking forward to the lifts opening. For our October update it looks like the first weekend of November for  the lifts opening.

Our team has expanded to include the new faces of James Brockbanks . He is one of the most experienced coaches and most gifted riders out there.  He holds his top British instructing and coaching qualifications and has spent his summer getting qualified as a personal trainer.

After spending a couple of winters away in Innsbruck , James is joining us back in Verbier where he has spent nine winters . This amount of time spent on the mountain combined with his natural skills for riding and coaching means he will be an amazing edition to the Vivid Snowboard Team.

Up and coming talent Oscar Conway is also joining the Vivid Snowboarding team for the 2012/2013 winter. After coaching Oscar on an Instructor training programme a few winters back I immediately saw that he had a deft touch on his board . Oscar has a huge passion for both riding and spinning a few tunes. He will be available to edit movies to his own produced tunes on our GO-PRO edit product as well coaching on the mountain every day. Look out for Oscar in the park, he goes big!
