epic conditions. grippy cord. not a cloud in the sky. non-stop from 8:50am till about 12:30pm.

unfortunately nastar was going on. and then the ski jammer bus showed up. it got busy in the lift line. only had one near miss with another snowboarder.

lotta people showed up early. i was in a line to get lift ticket.

beautiful day out. excellent snow.

tried randy's mad killer. couldn't ride it like he can. i mounted my bindings without adjusting angles. with the 18 cm waist, i had 1-1/2 inch over hang on rear boot. not that it mattered because by the time i tipped the board it had already completed the turn. guess i'm too slow for the transitions.  serious edge hold. only problem was whenever i came in to stop on either edge, it felt funny like the nose was hooking up. thing wanted to turn.

weather doesn't look good for the rest of the week.

warm temps. above freezing. it snowed a couple inches last night but riding was rough. rode upright most of the time. kept hitting the ice underneath which felt harsh.   tried getting low but mistakes were made.
