KRISTA’S PARK // Video Recap Thank you to @BrightonResort for this beautiful MUST SEE video edit of the grand opening of Krista’s Park with #B4BC and @BurtonGirls: “There is always a story about Krista Moroge. Anyone that knew her, rode with her, or did anything with her can tell you something that will inspire you or make you laugh. Krista represented herself and snowboarding better than anyone. @BurtonSnowboard will always be proud she was part of the family, and this park is dedicated to the spirit she pioneered – ride, ride hard, and ride fun. The unique features in this park are designed with women’s riding at the forefront – like Krista herself.” Krista Moroge May 9, 1974 – May 24, 2010 Video here: https://vimeo.com/82812790
With every new calendar year we are all looking to better ourselves in one way or another. Trading fruit desserts in place of cakes and cookies is always a great way to cut back on sweets and feel healthier. However, sometimes a plain piece of fruit just doesn’t satisfy a sweet tooth!

TASTY TUESDAYS // Turmeric Hot Cocoa Y U M . This healthy superfood hot cocoa recipe is full of turmeric, coconut oil, almonds, ginger, raw cacao, cinnamon and more delicious goodness that will make you want to curl up next to the fireplace and watch snow fall! While smoothies and juices are wonderful, as the weather gets colder, the body can really benefit from warm foods and drinks. Enter… the hot milkshake! Think: hot cocoa with or without the cocoa (and definitely without marshmallows!) This recipe is very versatile – use your favorite nuts (not those relatives you’re seeing over the Holidays – I mean almonds, cashews, walnuts or hazelnuts), spices and superfoods to make it “yours.” Coconut oil adds an extra creaminess and so many health benefits for your heart, bones and brain, not to mention i
