Snowboarding

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...

Loveland 10/20/07

Since Steamboat won't be open till November 21st and the early snowboard season is only 2 hours away...the drive to ride is well worth it so any spare days off right now I am down in Summit County to ride. Woke up early today, packed up my gear, picked up my friend Steve in town and we headed down to Loveland to endure a Saturday riding day. Surprisingly it wasn't busy at all for a Saturday and it was bluebird out...

Loveland 10/18/07

I got today off work and I wasn't going to waste it. So I grabbed my friend Doug here in Steamboat and we hit the road Thursday morning for some early season shredding at Loveland. Usually the drive from Steamboat for early season riding isn't bad. This morning because it snowed in Steamboat a couple inches last night...was not the best drive. In fact there was a huge accident ahead of us and luckily we managed to...

Timberline-August 2007

So I'll be switching between past and future experiences in my blog. I'll try to make it pretty clear when I'm bringing something back from the past so I don't confuse anyone. I've been living in Steamboat Springs, Colorado for over a year now. I am originally a Washington native and still trek my way back there a couple times a year to shred my old local mountains and visit good friends/family. Back in May I f...
