One of the best perks of being in Whistler for the Telus Festival is the demo days that go on each weekend. Anyone with a ID and credit card can check out the 2013 snowboards from a ton of brands at Whistler Mountain. I headed up despite all the crew riding Blackcomb and lapped Whistler for the day with my music and a couple boards underneath my feet to review.
Since I was riding alone, I didn’t take much for photos and just enjoyed a peaceful day on the mountain in the sunshine. It was really good to have my ipod and headphones with me so I could just cruise and get a feel for boards. I ended up taking out Endeavor boards for the day, the Boyfriend and Colour Series got a good amount of ride time for each board.
For the afternoon, I headed onto the Peak to Peak to get over Blackcomb for a ride down to Merlins to meet up with the crew. Blackcomb was definitely slushier and softer snow for the day but super fun to ride down and just haul!
The night ended with the Big Air competition and watching from the sidelines with friends. It was a good start to the evening and end of shredding day.
