Gotta work.... And if this snow shit keeps up I may be on standby Saturday as well which wouldn't allow me to ride..... I really need to hear back from some of these jobs I've applied for.

I think you missed Fluids humor.



Saw pictures of Loveland yesterday and they actually had a nice 18" base on the run that was open.... I saw no brown or slush anywhere... Coulda just not been captured by a camera though, I dunno.

Pack at Basin is actually very good for this time of year. Top of the mountain has good coverage too. Lift lines have been about 20 minutes or so, not super crowded like normal for some reason.

I went to A-basin yesterday (saturday). I thought it was. Complete zoo in the afternoon. It took us about 1 hour to make the loop. After 3 though, you could almost walk up to the lift. 5 minutes max. I had a couple of impacts with other folks. That wasn't my fault (newbs?)

We made seven runs from 9am to 3:30pm. Snow coverage was good. I took my brand new board with me and had no problems. There was one spot with some exposed rocks peaking throgh. I just avoided that spot.

I'm stoked! I needed that sooooo bad! Meds for the soul.

I have to say it was pretty good! Crowd and lift line sucked but it was totally worth it. I rocked the singles line most of the day and it wasn't bad. The snow was way better then I thought it would be. Didn't make a run through the park unfortunately. I wanted to but it was packed and it was the first day so no reason to kill myself yet. I just basically cruised around...pressed and buttered. Soooo fun. I soooo needed that! Glad the season has begun!!!

Picture of mine and my girls boards the night before, frehly waxed with Bluebird!

Nice Fluid!

I hit the Basin yesterday and today and today was def more fun.... Conditions were a lil better yesterday but there wasn't near the amount of douchebags. Overall the amount of people was roughly the same, but the idiots seemed to stay home.

Good weekend
