Please tell me you're not dragging the Virus across all of that?

Today I did... There was a good helping of snow though, so only just knicked a couple rocks. I plan on using either of the Burtons for the competition. Probably the T7, it's longer and more likely to keep afloat!

Well it was okay, I didn't come in last place!!!

Unfortunately it was on a different slope than I expected, so all the training we'd done in the last couple weeks on a slope called ER3 was useless. Add to that really flat light and neither of us made the cut for day two.

I can't remember the last time I felt that much adrenaline pumping through me though! By the time I got to the bottom I was so out of breath I can't believe I made it in one run!

I'd like to say I'll try again next year, and this time get more practice in, but it was sort of poorly run (the 8:00 start meeting didn't happen until about 8:45, and the 4:00 results meeting didn't happen until 5:00). I'll wait until next year to decide to compete.

In other news, it was only ONE RUN to prove your skill, so I decided to ride the Virus. Big mistake. I blew out one of the edges landing on a rock... I'm going to try to fix it but I may have fucked the board!

Thanks yeah I may bring it to them. Took the T7 to Ski Cellar but they didn't do a great repair on a rock gouge...

I'll post pics of the damage soon. Right between the bindings on my heel edge, there's a piece about 6" long x 1" deep that has slightly bent up. It's bent enough to actually crack the base material lengthwise about 1" in from the edge. I fear that that entire section is now significantly weaker.

Was debating about heating it up and clamping it between two 2x4s, but I think unless I'm melting resin and base material I'll just be weakening it even more.

Chances are if I just use it as a groomer bomber it'll last many years like this, but it's SOOOOOOOOOOO good in the powder!

I was even thinking of cutting off several layers of FG/CF and then bending the area down, and patching it with new FG, but that'll be pretty hack.

Last option is sending it back to Germany to see what magic he can work on it, but I think I've well and truly fucked this one! Still want me to try that kessler?!?

Yeah I've had bad luck all over LL. It's the only hill that chews through boards for me! I usually go under the lift on Top of the World, then cut around to the old lift line. Not bad in there. The worst stuff I get is all over the back side. Paradise bowl stuff, sometimes the ultimate steeps but usually there's tons of snow in there.

I hate to say this but I almost need to dedicate a board to LL and keep whatever I replace the Virus with for every other hill (probably another Virus). On the other hand, I could just stick to easier terrain! Ha!
