Took out the video and put together a mini-vid for today’s riding…enjoy and let me know what you think!
I woke up early planning to press glass today but by the time I got to the base of the gondola it was already packed with people in line before 8 am. Met up with my buddy Steve, grabbed some coffee and hit up the line with a couple other friends.
Today was the first day that Storm Peak would be running and let me tell you, with the amount of snow that we got a couple days ago…meant today was a powder day!
Conditions were amazing, gotta love when Storm Peak opens and you can still enjoy powder turns days after it snowed. Our first run, we took Storm face and got some goods…then headed into the trees to ride freshies. There were still hazards in the trees, had to watch out for buried trees and rocks. Best advice, keep your nose up and don’t let it dive…you don’t want it to catch on anything in early season conditions.
So I got a new 686 jacket, picked up a great deal on dogfunk and couldn’t turn down one of my favorite jackets of the year. I’ll get a pic of it and put it up later. Today was my first day wearing it and I was stoked on it!
I was a bit surprised to see in the lift line that some chick has my 686 digi print jacket…I had been telling people I was the only girl wearing it in Steamboat. I’m hoping she’s just a tourist though so people don’t think I’m her.
