Rocky Mountain On-Snow Demo 2009 Day 2

13 Feb, 2009

While the rest of the condo had to get up to set up the demo tent, I got a extra little bit of sleep in the morning before I made my way out to the demos on day 2.
Here’s the video for the day, with my friends in the park and getting some demos set up.

Day 2 brought out the cold weather on hardpacked groomers with winds.   It was overcast with flat light most of the day.
We had a crew of friends riding together and demo’ing which was great since it helped you forget the cold easier.  Our crew was Tj, K, Adrian, Lauren and myself.

MTNOPS came out for the demo.  Mark Sullivan made the trek from Idaho to bring down some boards and I managed to take two of them out.

Mark who does the Flow Blog (Flog) was on hand today at the demos so we got a shot together, bloggers unite!

Here’s what I rode on Day 2:
-Burton Malolo with Scribe EST bindings
-Burton Hero with Molotov EST bindings
-Nitro Carrera with Raiden Eris bindings
-MTNOPS Burden with Union Forces
-MTNOPS Leviathan with Union Forces
-Unity Reverse with Union Forces
-Capita Green Machine with Union Forces
I haven’t really talked about the boards I have rode and what I think yet, I’ll probably do a follow up post just discussing everything in general.  Each board will have its own review as well.
Day 2 ended with wizard stick and pool before we made our way to a DC party offering up free drinks.

To the guys at Powdertools…best conversation ever during the party was them talking about how they are getting blogged, “we’re getting blogged!!!!”
