Steamboat 11/30/08

30 Nov, 2008

It was a slow start to the day, took a while this morning to get up and then went outside to enjoy the fresh 5 inches of snow overnight with my dog.

Here’s my dog trying to catch the snow I’m throwing at her

Picked up Amy and headed to the mountain for an afternoon of riding.

We are still waiting on the rest of the mountain to open up. Hopefully this week more terrain will be open especially on the upper mountain. The line for Christie Peak Express wasn’t too bad, waited a couple minutes to take each run and after a couple runs it died down.

Even with the new snow, today was pretty tracked out on the runs by the time we got up. Pretty much dust on crust, icy conditions especially in the lift lines. Other than that, coverage is filling in and not bad riding.
So today I messed around with filming just for practice, I’ve been thinking about it and wondering if I should do more with films for the blog. Watch this with your sound on and tell me what you think.

I took a couple laps through the park each time just playing on the rails again. I finally tried the flat box and was happy to start doing tail presses on them.
The town is really starting to get covered in snowfall.

I caught Andy stopped and doing something on the fun.

    Video is a great idea. Nice to put a voice to the name/face! Plus it would probably sometimes be easier for you to express your thoughts or describe conditions, etc. with the spoken word instead of the written. Keep it coming!

    Hey Shay, dug the video as well. I know trick tips videos get done to death but it might be a good niche for you as a fellow female rider. Cheers!

    Hmm yeah I’d have to be good to do trick tips, we’ll see that’s a possibility. Definitely maybe something I could do for halfpipe, I figure eventually i’ll do a halfpipe vid and me sucking on rails vid.
