Carving arcs on the slopes, and NASTAR courses, of Aspen's four mountains during a trip in Feb 2013 to the Aspen Anesthesia Seminar, & the Summit Expression Session. The Session, organised by Bomber Industries (bomberonline.com), is probably the biggest assembly of carving snowboarders in the world. Aspen Anesthesia Seminar (holidayseminars.com) has run for over 30 years. Both events are held annually in early February in Aspen. A combination made in Heaven for an alpine snowboarding anaesthetist! Toi whakairo, the art of carving.
