Ahhh. Waxing is real important for spring riding no? So on Sunday by about 2 PM my base felt like it was riding through dough. It wouldnt glide. I put flouro on a few days before. Day started hard (not icy), turned great for a couple runs then slushy in the afternoon in 50 degree temps. So that ride through dough feel means hoof to the car and touch up with express wax? I guess I didnt realize slush will take wax off in 10 runs in the spring.
Grew up at Sugarloaf. New home is the NY State Trifecta - Gore, Whiteface and Belleayre
And when I ride with my big brother we hit Mount Snow and Stratton cuz that's where he lives

(Opening day 2013-2014, Stratton)
