I should have stayed in summit county for the progression series last night but I felt like heading home and sleeping in today with a relaxing day. After I arrived back in Steamboat, the storm rolled in and delivered a ton of new snow today. I ended up riding with Amy, Amanda and David.
A huge thanks to Philip for letting me borrow his Union CMYK bindings so I could spend today on the mountain. If you missed it, my lotus and union force SL bindings got stolen from my truck on friday. Today I spent time on the 10-11 NS prototype (it’s not the summit despite the graphics).
Snowboarding makes me happy
Riding conditions were fun, the new snow was helping cover up some rougher terrain on the mountain but we definitely need a lot more snow on the way to open up the entire mountain.

After a couple runs we headed to the newly opened Rabbit Ears Terrain Park which now has 7 jumps set up with smallest to largest progression in them. I just went in to check it out and ride through on the right side where the rails will be moved to after tomorrow.

Amanda’s last run she tried for some powder and enjoyed a wipeout
I didn’t stay too long on the mountain, went in and drank a beer with Doug. The snow was coming down by the time I left and it’s definitely going to be awesome powder tomorrow morning.
