Last night was a party at my place with friends, a keg and beer pong.  I wasn’t expected to ride much today but knew I had to make it up eventually since today was World Snowboard Day
Even when I arrived on the mountain for an afternoon of shredding, it was a busy day for the slopes.  I stuck to lower mountain to make laps through the Rabbit Ears Park.
The bashor chairlift is running, but the Bashor park still has yet to be open.  Supposedly this week the park will be up and running and hopefully the halfpipe.  Today they were grooming the snow into place and still blowing snow to fill in the terrain.

What is soon to be the halfpipe

I mostly spent time in the mini pipe just practicing riding switch and stalls on the tiny walls. Dropped off my board at Powdertools on the way home so I could finally get it waxed.  I need to pick up more wax so I can do it at home.
