Loveland 11/10/07

10 Nov, 2007

Even though I’m sick with a sore throat and about to lose my voice…I made my way down to Loveland to ride for a demo day! Demo days always get me stoked and happy…cause I can ride other boards and compare them to mine. Plus it’s just fun.

It was just me today from Steamboat…no one else wanted to make the trek unless there was new snow. Sometimes you just have to ride alone so I made sure I stopped by my work before taking off to grab my ipod nano so I had some company while riding.

As soon as I arrived, made my way to the demo tents to check out what companies were there.
Even though I went alone, I made some runs with cool people and got some nice lift talk going with fellow snowboarders from the area. Finally got one run with Gag’s the NS rep and later found myself on the chairlift with Cameron who works with Rossignol. Cameron and I have a mutual friend in common, Chad Frost…so that was fun making turns with him and talking.

Today started out as a bluebird Loveland day and by afternoon, clouds started to roll in. The best part of the day is always seeing no lift lines…here is a nice shot I took today with the parking lot full but still barely any lines.I managed to spend all day riding other boards than my own…here’s the list of boards (from today) that I’ll be adding to my 07-08 Snowboard Review which you can find right here

-07-08 Never Summer Evo
-07-08 Never Summer T5
-07-08 Capita MHT
-07-08 Rome Mod
-07-08 Atomic Radon
-07-08 K2 Gyrator

I rocked all those boards with my bindings, the Rome Madisons. Didn’t try any new bindings today.


The stand out board of the day was the K2 Gyrator. Even on hard packed conditions with no new snow…this board was some damn fun and held it’s own. I was amazed at how easy it was to tail and nose press. And I was riding a 162cm.

Oh yeah and there was no powder today. I’m going to try to ride it again on Wednesday at Loveland and hopefully it’ll dump snow…so I can enjoy the board in the conditions it was made for.

But damn it was fun and held it’s own.
