1. New on our Sites / and Lauren in the Press

An awesome new picture by Ziggy will be up on my home page by tmw (Wed.). It's Yale Cousino and Chris Rotax sliding 2 rails side by side at the Burlington VT City Center Rail Jam Nov. 11. They only pulled off this trick successfully once that night, and Ziggy risked his life to bring it to you. Take a look!

Hey teenage girls - 2 new TWIN (!) heartthrobs (oh, you don't know that word, do you?) have posted their profile up on my site. Check out
then click on O'Leary. Yum!

Lauren in the Press
I was quoted in Fit Yoga, Nov. issue saying how yoga helps me with my snowboarding because it helps me practice balance, flexibility, and relaxation. I do mean it. Yoga helps me be a better snowboarder. You probably know, I'm no spring chicken. Cluck.

Last Saturday, I had a short segment on Peter Greenberg's national radio show "Travel Today with Peter Greenberg." Peter is the also the travel editor of NBC. I talked on air about how Boardercross will be a new Olympic Event this winter, and how snowboarding is a great sport for adults to enjoy. I hope to be a guest again in the future. Thanks Dominique!

I went to the big Snow Sports Show in Boston Friday. Saw my friend Max Henault and his girlfriend Marisol doing their trampoline demo with their team. It was incredible. Max and a teammate both bounced ON their snowboards and did multiple flips. Marisol has PERFECT athletic form. Quite a sight.

Happy Thanksgiving!

2. Elijah Teter Critically Injured

Elijah Teter, of the famous Teter Snowboard clan and US Snowboard team member was critically injured on Nov. 12 when he had an accident at Whistler involving high speed and rocks.
Our very best wishes to him for a speedy and full recovery.

I rode with him when he was helping out at Tricia Byrnes' Snowboard Camp at Stratton Mountain, VT
in 2004. See Elijah, me and my fellow campers in the gondy here

5. Snow This Week in East

My meteorologist buddy Jim Roemer's new weather website just went live. He's predicting serious weather and lots of snow this week for the Eastern US. He says:

Two nor'easters have the potential to bring the central and northern Green Mountains of Vermont at least 18-24" of snow, over the next 5-6 days, and in some places, 3 feet, according to Jim Roemer, meteorologist and owner of

"I am very confident that ski areas around Jay Peak, and possibly Stowe and Whiteface Mountain will be blanketed with at least 18-24" at Sugarbush and Killington, and even a foot or more of snow at Okemo from these two systems.
Even southern Vermont ski resorts, such as Mt. Snow and Ascutney could see 6-12", with their best chance being from the second system later Friday and Saturday."

Put on your list of favorites for checking weather.
