Loveland is one of my favorite resorts but I typically only make it for the early and late season riding, even still it’s got some great terrain and unlike other Summit County resorts, there’s barely any lines. The natural terrain is amazing and today we stuck to the main chairlifts but when you venture out to the entire mountain, a lot of fun natural hits to enjoy.
Snow conditions today were a mix of slush to new snow falling. I arrived early with Jay to get a couple laps in before BBQ time. Lauren, Adrian and Xavier arrived just in time for BBQ.
So this is my favorite photo and the experience of the day. Xavier was trying to 270 onto the rail and he almost had it but ended up bailing off the rail. From the chairlift I could hear some kids completely yelling out at his crash, not the good kind of yell but the making fun of him for trying to do a trick yell. I was amazed mostly cause he tried something and was getting laughed at by these kids for his tight pants and trying a trick. And the kids couldn’t do a 270 onto a rail, we watched them roll through. Bummer that some snowboarders on the mountain are so high and mighty that they feel the need to rip on someone trying a new trick. I don’t think those kids have ever seen how LNP rips in tight pants either…ah well.
I took this photo of Xavier and Lauren through my legs at the end of the day
