I was really amped to end the work week and finish it off with some snowboarding. I hit up the mountain in the afternoon, giving me a couple laps before the rail rodeo at the base.
A nice storm arrived today bringing some high winds to the mountain, slowing down the gondola but still letting it operate and moving the snow around quite a bit.
When I was in Seattle last week, I traded out my Union Contacts for Union Force’s. I still love the contacts but they were too soft for all mountain riding for me, so got the forces instead. I spent this afternoon on them, I made one mistake of not adjusting them to my boot but managed to keep riding even though I knew it needed to be better adjusted.
I was stoked to get more Pow high 5 gloves, so sported those in a different color on the mountain. My hands stay pretty warm on the mountain and I like wearing thinner gloves so I have more hand control when using the camera.

I made my way down to the base, grabbed the better camera and hit up the Rail Rodeo which will be it’s own post.
