Our Up-Stix Videos

We’ve got quite a few Up-Stix videos on our YouTube channel but we thought we’d add this post to the blog to share a few of our favourites from the last 12 months or so. You can find them below and more on our on our Channel.

Rainy day fluffy slime making. Here’s the recipe!

We searched for an actual recipe for making our own fluffy slime and couldn’t find one – so we created our own FLUFFY SLIME RECIPE!

‘Piste Noir’ Les Gets Bike Park.

James has been progressing to bigger features in the Les Gets bike park. Nina came up to Piste Noir with the GoPro and the gimbal to get some footage.

Family jump sesh.

The 2017 summer season came to an end but we headed up to the bike park for a family jump sesh.


The Stash picnic table in Avoriaz.

The kids have been wanting to go through the Stash and do the picnic table for a while. We took them through and they both did it (just!). Wait for the end!


Tobogganing Park, Leysin.

We’ve mentioned this place in Switzerland a few times and this was a little video about last year’s family trip to the park. Great fun! Full post…

Snowboarded from the top of Ranfolly and jumped on the bike to descend from the top of Nauchets.

It was May 2016… The winter season had ended and the lifts had closed but I’d been looking at the strip of snow still sitting at the top of Ranfolly. I fancied boarding and biking one descent so we went and did it. Full post…

Downhill biking with T.

It definitely feels like spring in town at the moment with the grass starting to green and trees budding up. Minds are starting to turn to biking and this was a little vid of T taking on the Bike Park Les Gets trails last summer. It’s going to be fun again this year! Full post…

An early November dump in Les Gets.

A massive dump of snow arrived in November and it felt like it signalled the start of an incredible season. I met a mate and we hiked up Ranfolly for a fun ride down in some pretty decent fluffy pow. Full post…

Avoriaz opening day, Winter 2016/17.

Nina and I hotfooted it up to Avoriaz for the opening day on Friday 9th December. With next to no snowfall, the services teams had worked miracles to get loads of decent slopes open and it almost felt like it was just for us! Full post…

Mont Chéry opening day.

After a lean snow start to the season, Mont Chéry finally opened in mid January. I left Nina and the kids at home and headed up there on my own to check it out. It was fabulous and there was only me and a handful of others out there. It was a chance to lap some fresh lines at leisure. Wahooo! Full post…

Best day of the season?

The 6th of February 2017 was a brilliant powder day and a strong contender for ‘day of the season’. It was a Monday, the kids were at school and we met up with a load of friends on Mont Chéry for deep pow and good, good times! Full post…

Iz and T playing on skis in Les Gets.

Usually when we head out with the kids, we’re busy having fun and forget to bother getting any footage of them skiing. However, this time, they were running through some features in the park and we managed to capture this. The next day I even managed to get T doing a nice little side hit jump on his snowboard!
