2013 was great, we packed a lot into 12 months, visiting 16 countries across 4 continents.
It started in
Chamonix, France for a phenomenal winter spent snowboarding, back country ski touring and some spring road cycling. We then cycled 3000km across Europe to Asia, after 1 day in London we picked up our winter kit and flew to South America via New York for 3 months. We returned to Chamonix in November for our 3rd winter of the year!
In South America we traveled from the high Altiplano of Bolivia to the very south of Chilean Patagonia, all in the depths of winter. We snowboarded some of the most active volcanoes in the world (sometimes in blissful ignorance of this…), we split board toured through the wilds of Patagonia finding remote snowy couloirs to ride, crossed desolate frozen lakes, climbed glaciers on volcanoes, hiked the most impressive national parks we have yet visited, sat out weeks of winter rain in a small camper van, got epic tooth pain in Torres del Paine and ate more cakes than an obese American. So I have condensed this into just 12 pictures that hold fond memeories for me;

Sunrise and fresh tracks after a cold night camping at 3800m on the Vallee Blanche!
Good times hucking cliffs and ripping pow with Will in Chamonix
