Most Mondays I never get out onto the slopes but when I shadow the lifts, it means a couple laps to myself for an afternoon of helping out. Today was that day, getting turns on chair #3 before heading to chair #23 for the afternoon.
Amazing how much the snow has started to melt since the sunny spring days have arrived. It’s still good but noticeably disappearing.
Most of this year my powder board has been the NS Raptor. But I received a softer flex version from the factory which meant I couldn’t review it (because it wasn’t what was production). I rode it some amazing days and really grew love for the board over time. Well last week, NS sent out the Infinity and Raptor so I could review them. I was stoked to see the Raptor in the box because finally I could get a feel for the different flex and get a real review out of the board. Today was the first day I rode it and I can’t wait to write about it!
