Last night was snowing in Steamboat with a reported 5 inches of fresh powder this morning. I worked so I didn’t get to enjoy the snow till my ride break. By the time I made it up to the mountain, the sun was coming out of the clouds and turning out to be a really nice day in Steamboat.
Before hitting up the gondola ran into my friend Andrew who I gave a pair of Shocker Gloves to last year…his are totally destroyed so I said I’d do a trade to give him another set of gloves. When the shocker gloves came out, I got about 10 pairs of them most of which are gone now to friends. So the last spare set will be traded for a nice snowboard wax for my Never Summer. I’m waiting to buy more wax so I can wax my boards at home again.
Clouds started to come in throughout the day
Today was a pretty mellow day on the mountain, no lines and a ton of empty runs to yourself. I was supposed to meet up with a friend but we kept missing each other. I did have some nice conversations with some skiers and boarders I rode up the chair with.
Last run of the day I ran into Jacob so we made some turns…got this shot of him carving it up.
Finally since I had to be back at work…I made the trek down to the bottom of the mountain from Storm Peak.
Got this shot of me on the cat track as I was coming down. I really need to start wearing a face mask on the mountain. Today was my 25th day on hill this year…so I was stoked to be riding.
