Went snowboarding last week for the first time since 2018. Took my family to Gore Mountain in the Adirondacks. Got my kids to ride as well. My youngest just goes straight, hands in pockets like a fool. Fortunately for him only bunny slopes. Middle kid got himself down some intermediate trails. I was riding my old Salomon that I got in 1997-1998. We planned to snowboard every year, but I can't remember why we didn't in 2019, but the other years are a result of the pandemic. I decided to pick up a new board since the old board was feeling like I could snap it, so I found a Nitro Dropout 156 on sale and ordered that. Hopefully we can keep getting a week a year in moving forward.

I just got a few days in at Mt Sunapee in New Hampshire. Sleepy midweek slush sessions, definitely a cool local vibe, and finally *just barely* got my moneyís worth out of this yearís Epic pass.

Left the wife and kid behind and went on a little road trip, and stayed with an old friend in a different city back in early March. Hit the weather system perfectly, thigh deep pow for two days. Haven't ridden anything that deep in a long time, and with my old riding buddy, haven't ridden that hard in a long while either.
He has one of those plug and play hot tubs, so that helped with the after riding sores.

Yyyeeewww!!!

Been eyeing a public board for a while. Where are these pressed/country of origin? Notice they only have a 1 year warranty. Great deal though!
flat spotted 3 times in 2 weeks, other than that awesome wheels

Itís been a brutal spring here on the main island of Japan. Pretty much zero snow since Mid-February, its the polar opposite of whatís been happening in California. Itís mostly been rain and unusually high temps, so if its snowing where you are, remember that it probably isnít somewhere else.

Anyways making the most of a super-long spring, been snowskating a bit, and that has rekindled some of the stoke. Met up with a friend yesterday and he was kind enough to take some video of me eating shit. Enjoy!

Well the season is officially over. Last weekend was the last weekend. I ended up going up Saturday and Sunday to the hill. Saturday with my wife and daughter, we only did three runs then got lunch, since she's five. Still fun, and we have to make it fun so she doesn't flip the fuck out everytime she falls.
Sunday I went up solo and ripped. It was nice and warm, and I just did park laps with music on.
 I ended up bailing incredibly hard on a front board, and tweaked my wrist, bashed my head, and bit my tongue and lip from falling backwards off the rail and slamming. It was awesome, until that point.

The little scanner thingy the lifties use says I got up there 28 times. Not bad for a full time working dad guy.

One day I'll win the lottery, and just do endless winters and ride the rest of my life all day, everyday.
