Just noticed that Météo France now has an English language version of the site.
I was in Decathlon in Surrey Quays at the weekend. They have their winter sports stock in: a limited selection of boards and boots, plenty of clothing at reasonable prices and some bargain padded shorts for £13.99 which are also available from their online store. I am going to get some of these as presents for freinds and family who are still new to snowboarding.
Going along to this annual event with a few boarding or, if you must, skiing buddies usually works out as much more fun than some of the more high profile pre-season warm up events like Board X and the Daily Mail Ski and Snowboard Show.
