Steamboat 3/6/09

06 Mar, 2009

Since it’s been sunny and slushy on the mountain, my ride breaks have composed of lapping the park and pipe which means staying on lower mountain.

Conditions have been kind of grim, dirt is showing through in certain spots and we definitely need snow to get some better coverage.  
I spent today on the Capita Midnight with rome bindings to try out. 
Waiting to drop in while the superpipe is getting raked by park crew.  This year the crew has stepped it up, Steamboat isn’t known for the parks and they’ve really worked hard to bring new features and listen to local riders on making the park better.  

Steve from the Sign Shop was out at the park fixing the main entry sign, I caught him straddling the ladder

It’s rad when your friends support you, Steve supports on his board!

Right below the pipe is 2 features I’ve been trying to hit, a couple logs and a tire that I can work on nose tapping.
