'Wetter than an otter's pocket' - Les Gets MTB World Cup 2021

Just like the perfectly inappropriate timing of a bursting toddler, and with the eyes of ‘the world’ tuned in for the last 30 men in the MTB World Cup 2021 downhill final, it decided it couldn’t hold on any longer… And once it started, it didn’t stop. Aaahhhhhhhhhhhhh!

The most recent posts on Up-Stix with the latest at the top, then every post in every category, right back to the beginning (of the blog… Not time 😉)…

Les Gets

A beautiful alpine village sitting high on a col with skiing and boarding to suit all levels and one of the best know bike parks in the World.

Fabulous restaurants, bars and linked to the vast Portes du Soleil ski area…

Portes du Soleil

Gorgeous Alpine villages. One of the biggest linked ski areas and bike parks in the world, spanning the Franco-Swiss border.

Oodles of cheese, wine, stunning mountain scenery, awesome activities, unforgettable experiences…

Mountain Biking

‘Schralping’ through the berms, ‘brapping’ over the roots, ‘clattering’ through a rocky section. Then off the brakes and ‘whoompf’ for a big poppy hit… Perfect silence and a flying-breather…

Total engagement, total concentration, total focus!..

Snowboarding

Big, fat, fluffy flakes cascading out of the sky onto tantalising layers of sweet fluffy snow…

Wake the next morning and peer excitedly out of that same window to find…

Lifestyle

Meditation, visualisation and an optimised mindset can cheer you up or change your life! 

We’re learning that the limits of possibility go way beyond what we previously thought and could unlock potential we’ve only dreamed about…

This n' that

Not everything fits into the other categories and if it doesn’t, it’s doesn’t necessarily mean it’s not worthy of a place… And that place is here…

Mildly Amusing. 🤪

Some things tickle me, usually when I’m being a muppet to be fair… 🤪😂
