Steamboat 3/7/10

07 Mar, 2010

It’s been a tough winter to wake up early where there is no new snowfall on the mountain but that also means weekends are spent getting stuff done before I head up for the day.  Today I had time to wax and scrape my boards which was much needed with the slushy slow snow on the mountain.  I made it to the mountain just in time to run into a couple friends for laps.

I was a couple gondola cars behind Jenny and Amanda and behind me a couple cars was Allen.  We all met up at the top just in time for Allen to prove his good lookingness next to this guy.  Tough choice.

After a lap on upper mountain in bumpy snow, we decided that it was time to rally to the pipe and park for the afternoon.  It was a bummer to see the mini park closed for the day but meant that I had to get the tricks in medium park because that’s all there was.

The sky turned to overcast during our shredding in the afternoon which meant a storm was coming in soon, we ended the day by heading to Slopeside for some apres drinks.

When I got home I finally got to look at the damage to my highback.  I can’t remember when it broke but today in the lift line I noticed that I had a crack in my highback.  It’s still rideable, I rode it all today and it’s my rear binding so I’m not too worried.  I should be able to temporary put on a Force highback until I can get a replacement from Union.
