I actually have a picture of the longboard without the cat on it. Since I wanted to show someone who had a similar looking cat. Honestly I wouldn't want to post pics of this guys long board on an internet forum, Im uptight about privacy like that.

however I bet I can get him to post his cat on youtube.

I got a buddy who takes his cat longboarding. No joke. He even made the cat a custom long board and painted it to match his fur. he puts the cat on the board and pushes and the two of them ride side by side. Cat loves it.

Yeah that's one of my favorite spots. There's that hip you can jump off right near the top of that "chair" and then dive in to those glades.

I'm starting to find spots that are consistently less abused than other spots on the hill. Usually it seems like they're just off the beaten path and the difference is amazing!

seriouscat lol I see where you went.... Trust me it was much worse on opening day weekend. I used 2/3rds of a toko candle after that day (my first self ptex service.)

After that experience I just did 2 front side runs on Saturday. Even though the condition were spectacular after the first 100 meters.

Thanks! Yeah that's the front side of Lake Louise. So far I'm thrilled with living out here... The season is long, there's usually a powder dump every few weeks or so, and the resorts aren't too crowded. There's a million BC lines too but I'll save that for another year if/when I get bored with the resorts.

Okay so took out my trusty file and filed the edge down (it was raised a little). Gouged out any loose base, cleaned, ptex'd, scraped and now she's ready for wax. My work doesn't look pretty at all but it's smooth and it should stay in there!

FacePlant4Free so jealous. Those are some sick pictures.

here's to hoping that this year is much better than last... seems like that's a good start.

That cat gets into everything! Scared shitless of the vacuum but I'm wailing away on my board at the moment and he's right there checking things out!
