Snowboarding

Mammoth 2/9/11

Today was the first day of the WWSRA demo at Mammoth which meant my lunch/ride break was spent trying out boards for the demo day.  It was a beautiful day for demo'ing, sunshine and groomed runs.  Plenty of companies were in the parking lot at chair #2 with demos for industry shops. I ended up riding two setups with the time I had, tried out the Signal OG with my bindings and the Rome Mod with Rome Targa bindings....

Mammoth 2/8/11

It's been busy back at Mammoth but getting out on a ride break at lunch always make the day better.  I headed out for a couple laps with Ashley, Jade and a couple others.  It was a beautiful day on the mountain and perfect for laps through the South Park pipe, Art Park and mini Park.

Mammoth 2/6/11

I definitely wasn't in a rush to snowboard after SIA and the on-snow, just wanted sometime to relax but today definitely felt the need to be back on the slopes in the warm sunny california sunshine.   Plus it gave me a chance to ride the NS Proto again before the review goes up. I headed up to meet Pat Stahl on the mountain and we took a couple laps with Luke who did the chilean super 8 video I put up months ago....

Copper 11/17/07

I'd been hesitant to go back to Copper until the lines died down...but they definitely were not bad for riding today. Steve and I showed up to Copper around 10:30am to enjoy another day of snowboarding. We made two runs on American Eagle before noticing that American Flyer chair was open and loading people. Since it was overcast and kind of cloudy day...I finally got to try out the rose lenses on my EG5's. They rocke...

Loveland 11/14/07 & 11/15/07

A couple weeks ago when I heard about the Shop Demo coming up at Loveland...I knew I'd want to be there to try out as many boards and bindings as possible. So I made sure to get my name on the list and got the days off work. It was the best two days of demoing boards, having fun and snowboarding when I should have been working. I got up early Wednesday to make the drive down to Loveland. It was just me coming from...

Loveland 11/11/07

The plan was to ride Copper today with friends...but at the last minute decided to hit up Loveland instead. Later in the day I received a text from my friend Steve about the lines at Copper while I texted him back that Loveland had zero lines and great riding. Today was the first day my truck was full for the drive. I made the trek down with Amy, Aaron and Jacob. I made my way to the Santa Cruz tent to try out ...

Loveland 11/10/07

Even though I'm sick with a sore throat and about to lose my voice...I made my way down to Loveland to ride for a demo day! Demo days always get me stoked and happy...cause I can ride other boards and compare them to mine. Plus it's just fun. It was just me today from Steamboat...no one else wanted to make the trek unless there was new snow. Sometimes you just have to ride alone so I made sure I stopped by my work...

Copper 11/3/07

So this year my season pass is good at Copper, Winter Park and Steamboat. So today I drove down to Copper with my friend Pete to get our season passes scanned for the first day and enjoy some awesome Copper riding. Last year I rode Copper opening weekend so I knew what to expect...two chairlifts, a couple runs and long lines. We got to Copper pretty early so were able to make laps without having to deal with long ...

A-Basin 10/29/07

To enjoy my day off, I made my way down to A-Basin. I decided to do A-Basin over Loveland because it was a Monday (midweek so less crowds) and I wanted to get at least one day at A-Basin in before the season began here in Steamboat. Normally I spend the end of season at A-Basin when most people are tired of riding and the lines aren't too bad and spring conditions. Today was just me going alone to ride. Not many o...

Loveland 10/27/07 & 10/28/07

I have a 3 day weekend so I am taking full advantage of it. I am a snowboard bum. A very tired, busy snowboard bum. Even on a holiday weekend of parties and celebrating Halloween here in Steamboat (I was a naughty cop) I still managed to grab friends and ride Loveland both days this weekend. This required early morning Starbucks or Red Bull and riding on about 4-5 hours of sleep each night. Tonight I should get ab...
