Me & My Snowboard...


So my Sweetie and I managed to get in a good day at Copper Mountain Sunday...the temp was, amazingly in the 60s, so by afternoon the snow was headed toward snowcone consistency. Morning, though was just super. The board is my ancient Burton all-mountain board set up with new Solomon bindings to match the new Solomon boots. Since I've lost about 30 pounds (so far) I can now wear all my old snow stuff, making me about 100% retro. I kept expecting somebody from Burton to run up to me and shout, "Dude! We need that board for the Burton museum!"

Grammar is the hobgoblin of small minds...LOL!...I love to snowboard...it's so much more "surfing" the mountain than skiing...and yes, my knees were glowing today, but hell, I never thought it would be free...back when I was doing extreme sports stuff, there were at least 2 or 3 times when I got lucky and didn't end up dead...I figure I'm on bonus points now...

I was in Vail the week before and 50 to 60 degrees is too hot to ski. Plus as you said the snow like a snow cone kept trying to grab my skis.
