I slacked on riding Saturday, so I drove down to summit county Saturday night to crash with friends to make sure I would ride today. It was an early day since I had a non-snow BBQ at my house to attend this afternoon.

It was beautiful out, bluebird day, warm out, definitely spring conditions as the slush has come out on the mountain. Today was the last day for Pali chair so we kept lapping there as it was less busy as usual.

I hit up the mountain with my friend K for an early morning shredding session. It was definitely a shocker day for us both.

As usual we made laps on the mountain and hitting up the terrain park.

K managed to get this shot of me with an awesome short wearing two knee wearing chick in the lift line…Classic!
One of the highlights of the day was the guy wearing a thong while riding…yes a thong with sparkles in the front and full on red lace in the back. I saw him first in the terrain park and then captured him riding behind two ski patrollers on the last run. It was quite amazing to see…not sure where the thong love came from but definitely caught everyone’s attention.

    Oh my, this looks oddly like the “pants-less” run Kendra, Steve, Karmel and I did in Whistler a few days after you took off. Although none of us was wearing a thong (as far as I can tell). YAY PAPA MUNTZ!
