I wasn’t sure if I would make it on the hill but it was a good day to break from work, enjoy the sun and lap the superpipe. Winds were high so the gondola was not running by the time I got up and other chairlifts were closed but luckily the park chair and Christie Peak was all I needed.
I have some readers of the blog in town which is always great to meet people I email back and forth it, in person. Jeremy and Skyler are in steamboat on vacation, stopped by to say hi to me at work and hopefully we can take some laps tomorrow on the mountain. Today I took a ride break just by myself with the Capita Midnight.
Just lapping the superpipe was good, cranked the music and rode by myself. I saw a couple people I knew but it was fun to just ride alone. One thing when I ride alone is really watching people in the superpipe whether it’s the person always in the pipe or the new person just checking it out. I watched a really rough landing as a skier decided to drop in with a lot of speed but didn’t know to drop in to the pipe versus jumping in off the deck. She landed on the flat and ejected from both skis on impact. It was painful to watch, she got up and gathered herself but man…it sucks to see when people don’t know any better.
