Oh yeah, I hear you on that one. I love snowboarding, but mole hills are only entertaining for so long. I'm only ever at the hill long enough to teach my allotted lessons and piss off from there asap.

andrewdod I ride everyother day, that's what my class schedule allows... but im pretty sure i could do quite a few days straight... Leg conditioning for me is not an issue... I'm rarely burned out after a 6 hour day on the hill. I go to the hill after weight training for football all the time, doesnt bother me the slightest...

twowheeled I ride 5 days a week usually, what helps is lots of sleep, riding with a different attitude, and pacing myself. For example I won't charge down the hill every single run hitting the nastiest terrain. If I take a few tumbles and my body starts getting beat up I will cruise a few groomers and call it a day. My friends who only get to go on weekends or a couple times a month will charge hard and be absolutely dead and sore and the end of a single day. They'll also want to be on the first and last chairs of the day just to get their moneys worth. Bottom line for me is if I'm not having any fun, I call it a day.

Also what really helps me is I always stretch on the gondola. Hit up the neck, shoulders, back, and legs.

Oh yea, to make this work I'm unemployed, lol

Argo I live in Vail about 300-350 meters to the lift and work next door to my condos on evening shift 3-4 days a week. Unfortunately it's 4 in winter... We also vacation to hood for a week or two in summer for some turns.

You have to get your priorities straight first, then make your life happen the way you want it to. My priority is raising my son and having fun doing it, in an out doorsy way. Family life is a top priority and work is well.... Just a way to make a pay check and live life.....

mhaas My workload is heavily seasonal. I pretty much work a day or two from home during the winter months and I live 30 min from the greatest snow on earth. Riding or fishing everyday during the winter makes 70 hour weeks during the summer seem not so bad.
