sabatoa too bad we didn't get a chance to meet up today! we probably passed each other on the chairlift a few times
FYI anyone considering going to holly tomorrow, you might want to change your plans unless you're going primarily for the beer & the pond-skim. Most of the terrain including the parks is unrideable, and it is the dirtiest, slowest, mashed potatoes snow that I've ever ridden. If it doesn't freeze overnight it will be as bad or worse tomorrow.
Haha, thanks! I'm pretty proud of the fact that my 5th time (ever) on a snowboard, I had the confidence to tackle something like that.
I gotta work on my edge control and stuff...I high-sided once and wiped out so hard that my front binding came undone! Then, another time, I caught an edge and apparently was airborne for something like 6 feet...my snowboard track ended, then 6 feet later, my skid mark started. But yes, I was "that guy" doing garlands and sideslips down the entire hill most of the time.
I also didn't realize how easy it was to make a wrong turn and wind up on the black-diamond terrain parks . Although, I guess looking at the trail map, it's not that hard, especially right around Chair 2.
hah, i thought you'd like my ugly face on ur cam dave! too bad i totally tripped after i did that! leo, yea the board was frikken great! the first run was sick but it slowed right down with the conditions. like dave said, it was like mashed potatoes out there. i really liked the NS tho. i would def consider it for a future board. graphics are ill too btw. thanks for lettin us try it out! the bottom got a little dirty from the snow but it shud come off.
sucks! holly says they're closed for the season unless a random snow storm pops up and pk says they may open next wknd weather permitting. not sure if holly just closed today or if they closed on sunday? i didn't check their website yesterday so i'm not sure if their sunday session went off? either way looks like we're goin up north here on out! the season has come to an end down here.
