Despite the really cold temperatures that have been hitting Colorado, I set out today on my ride break to warm up my body with park laps. Nothing has really changed on the mountain, no new snow and no new features but that doesn’t bother me since I’m still working on getting comfortable in the park. Like anything in snowboarding, I know that doing it over and over will make sure it comes naturally to me at sometime in the future.
I made a couple calls but no one was up riding so I figured I would lap park till I ran into someone. I came prepared with music just in case I needed to zone out.
It only took a run till I met up with Sonny & Molly with a couple of their friends. It’s been awesome being able to run into people and just lap the terrain park during ride breaks. It personally means I can get a good amount of runs in with the park and Christie Peak Express chairlift right next to it.

So I realize I haven’t gotten any shots of me lately which is fine cause I know I’ll get some soon and maybe this weekend. I personally just need to balls up and start boardsliding but I’ve been a bit hesitant about it. I have been hitting more features in the park, my typical run now is the mini rainbow box, flat 5ft box and flat 10 ft box, wider dance box and I believe the flat 15ft box. Plus when I get to the bottom I can bonk the log jib from the side (still working on higher airs and spinning off it). Compared to last year that’s a whole lot of features that I never hit and now I hit them comfortably. Here’s to the weekend beginning and more time on the mountain!
