Alba Pardo Tour guide

Alba Pardo Tour guide;

After a powder filled week in Switzerland, and a few great days visiting Zurich with my good friend Katie Junttila and her adorable kids. I hoped my flight to Barcelona to start my adventure around southern Europe with Alba Pardo. With some Swiss Francs exchanged to Euros, an awesome Spanish style sandwich we arrived in Arinsal Andorra for a few days at Vallnord Parks.

At this point I'd like to give a quick mention to Alba being the best, nicest, and most giving your guide ever!

Back to snowboarding, our Andorra experience consisted of one day at Arinsal riding a super fun park built by ASP snowparks where we rode all day then did a sunset shoot around 6pm. Then the next day we headed to Ordino-Arcalis which is known for the free-riding to see if we could come up with something a bit more creative...that we did.
After a few laps around the mountain finding nothing but sheets of ice, we headed into the trees to check out the wood-park. Now conditions were nothing near ideal, but I'd definitely say we scrapped snow and made the best of it getting some pretty sweet shots actually. Andorra local David, who is joining us on the road trip, deserves a shout out for getting upside down on a pretty sketchy feature. With a quick break at the house and some packing we were off ready to see what the road would bring us...

P.S. Id like to thank Katie Junttila for being so hospitable and providing me with an amazing few days in Zurich!
