Rocky Mountain On-Snow Demo 2009 Day 3

13 Feb, 2009

Well last night was a late night, stayed up partying and went to bed around 2am. This morning was a little rough but after some coffee I was awake and hanging in there.
Here’s the video for day 3 of demos, today was just trying out a couple boards and having fun with friends while riding them.

I spent the first couple runs with Dan and Jay who were able to get away from the Lib tent. It was becoming a beautiful day, still cold but at least the sun was out and fun to ride the mountain with.
My early morning was spent on the Park Pickle which was requested a couple times and glad I finally got on it because it was good.

We ended the day on a high note, enjoying a cold beer in the sun. I was definitely ready to head home.

    Just a question about the pickle that you could address in your review (assuming that you are reviewing it for your site)…

    Did you ride switch at all? Did the pickle shape bother you at all when you were riding switch with it?

    Hey GS, that’s a next years Quiksilver jacket that Dan is wearing.

    Chris, I did ride it switch and the shape didn’t bother me when I was riding switch and the heelside edge held as well as it did riding regular.
