Last night was the first snowfall of the week; today we got over a foot of snow and this weekend a storm is supposed to bring in up to 8 feet of snow. Yep I’m crossing my fingers for that much snowfall to arrive over the weekend! It was the perfect lunch break to get some powder turns in and enjoy some of the goodies that ullr delivered up.
It’s funny to say but some parts of Mammoth remind me of Washington riding and make me feel back at home. Today I ventured out to chair 8 to meet up with Daniel and it was a blast from the past riding the chair…except being at Mammoth.
A huge thanks goes out to P3 Snowboard Shop in Mammoth. I totally support shops that have demo boards available especially now living at Mammoth where there are less on-snow demos than Colorado. It’s been an interesting switch to go from 10 demo days a year to 1 or 2 days which means relying on snowboard companies to directly ship to me, reps to let me borrow gear or shops that have demo boards in order to get reviews up.
Today I was able to ride the GNU Riders Choice which will be reviewed soon. One of the rad things about demo’ing is being able to try a board in a variety of conditions on my time.

It was a seriously fun day on the slopes and so rad to get some powder turns in. This weekend is going to be nuts in town with the big Night of Lights festival, the Art Park opening and the snow storm delivering up feet of snow. I’m going to have fun but also be up early for the goods if it dumps.
