Ride time on a monday is usually hard to come by since I’m catching up on work for the week but today I had to drop off something at the top of the gondola so that meant getting a ride break.

It was only one run from the top of the gondola to the base but I was able to time the run with Philip coming down from his clinic on the mountain.  So we enjoyed the terrain together or mostly I laughed at how horrible I was doing on the icy dust on crust run.

Sometimes you just have to smile and keep riding

It wasn’t the best day of the season but it was getting outside to get some turns in on my break.  Definitely looking forward to more snow in the forecast and better conditions on the mountain so a monday ride break might mean a powder day.
