snowboarding.

Recommended Posts

If my current lack of being able to find a job continues, i'm contemplating ski bumming it for the winter, or at least working any job i can find in a city close to the mountains like denver or boulder. If i'm going to be making shit wages for a few months, i might as well do it somewhere that i can get out and ride a couple days a week.

 

Plus, being able to get in more than 5 or 10 days of riding in a year, i could really step my shit up. I consider myself good and am fine on most anything short of long, thin chutes, ridiculously tight trees, and the straight down type of shit like in the first picture up there. I'd like to clean it up a bit though, but when i take two 5 day trips, the first day of both is partially a warmup, then since i don't do it often, by the 4th and 5th days i start getting pretty beat towards the end of the day. If i got a full season of riding twice a week or more, i'd probably be able to start getting into a lot more backcountry shit, and get myself in good enough shape to hike to some peaks when there is amazing powder to be had.

 

I'm getting myself all excited just thinking about it. fffffffffuuuuuuuu

I went snowboarding when I was young and lived in Northern Virginia.

It was pretty fun.

 

I think this winter I am going to go snowboarding on the Alps.

I figure I might as well do it while I am here, instead of being a big sissy baby and letting life and opportunities pass me by.

Although I have a feeling that I will probably end up trading in the snowboard for a sled and sledding until I can't sled no more.

Stowe(Vermont) Has become one of my favorites on the east coast. If anyone knows the trail the Kitchen wall there is mad fun to be had on it for days. Decent night life in the area and good cheap rooms. Sheeeiit my boy and I even picked up a register clerk and chick moppin the floor at the Mobil station next to our room, smoked out and smashed. Good times.

I had a friend almost convince me to go snowboarding with him, but I couldn't for whatever reason. He came back with broken ribs, and I was happy I didn't go.

 

Cool story me.

Amen to that.

I miss Stowe. I used to live in Burlington and would hit up that area many times a week.

I'm going to Silverthorne/Breckenridge/Vail/Aspen with friends for New Years. Originally I was going to sit and watch them snowboard while I drink, but I think I might give it a shot.

i havent snowboarded in a long ass time, but before i got laid off from my job i copped myself a 8-10 ft long desk that i think we're gonna stash on a hill somewhere and try and get some snowboarding done this year and grind the shit outta it.

 

i used to love jumping over small creaks and rivers, dropping off like 5 ft cliffs and shit. fs 180 stalefishes were my shit.
