Mammoth 2/13/11

13 Feb, 2011

It’s been starting to get busier in town with President’s holiday quickly approaching but even still, took my time this morning to get up to the mountain and start making laps with Pat and his crew.  I ended up running into Dee Dee so was able to get in laps with her and meet one of the blog readers, Jon throughout the day.

It was definitely a park day but the kind of park day you dread.  Forest Trail was awesome but there were some close encounters because too many people were riding without park knowledge and didn’t have common sense.  I got cut off in front of jumps, had people ride too close to jumps and pipe runs and just was lucky to walk away unscathed at the end of the day.

I even called it early because it was like that and I had stuff to do at home.  Even with the busy day, it was a fun park hot laps day hitting up the jump line and trying the flat box in forest trail.

    Although I got snaked twice in forest trail this time around, I still don’t think I’d be able to keep up with you in the park!

    And I have noticed this season, there are a lot more people with poor park etiquette =T
