It’s becoming clearer each day that the season is coming to an end in Steamboat, there’s more brown than white on the mountain and April is just days away. The mountain is set to close April 11th, after that I’ll be heading down to Summit County to ride the longer season at A-Basin.
Normally the end of the season it starts to mellow down in town but this year I’ve noticed there’s still a good amount of visitors in Steamboat getting in some late season riding. During midweek since I’m on the mountain for only an hour ride break, I spend it in the terrain park lapping my favorite features and still working on my progression. Today I had help with my progression on the dance box learning to 270 spin to win (that’s what I call it)…but I’ll have to conquer it another day.
Over the weekend and today I’ve been riding the Roxy Eminence C2 BTX to get in some late season review time on boards. I had the opportunity to take this board in the pipe and woo, I can see why it helps win gold…but it doesn’t perform miracles since I’m not at the gold level. I’ll be switching between this board and the arbor cadence/draft for reviews coming up.
Tomorrow I get to spend the morning on the mountain which makes Tuesdays my fun days!
