It’s fun how a weekend of sledding and snowboarding in the backcountry can work the muscles a lot harder than expected and yesterday I was sore from the weekend. With no new snow and bluebird skies, it was the perfect day for park laps in Rabbit Ears Park, Bashor and Lil’ Rodeo for my ride break.
My co-worker Rochelle and I made a couple laps together through the parks and getting our pipe riding in, starting with the mini pipe and then heading to the superpipe.
I had gotten word that a package of snowboards was on the way and quite surprised they were, but really happy to try out a couple of the sierrasnowboard collaboration snowboards on this site. I received the sierrascope and sierra crew to review. I ended up riding the sierrascope today, which is based on the horrorscope FK but with carbon stringers (so not as soft) and eco friendly.
It’s only January and with over 40 days under my belt, I feel strong and I’ve been venturing more into park than ever before. I’m not great at park by any means but I’m progressing. When I hit boxes now, I don’t think as much…it’s starting to come naturally. For someone that barely hit boxes last year, this is so much fun to see the small steps in my progress. And yes I’m wearing a helmet.
For the last run met up with some of the crew for pipe laps and feedback. Here’s Sonny rooting on Molly during her pipe run.
Tomorrow my friend Mike arrives in town. Mike has been a huge asset to helping behind the scenes with shayboarder.com and is my go-to guru for much knowledgeable website stuff that I can’t handle. I’m stoked to get to ride with him the next couple days.
