Snowboarding with a hangover?

Ok, sometimes after an awesome day of riding I will hit the town, and next thing leads to next, and I'm bloody shit-faced. Too late to take things back at that stage. Then, the suffering begins the next day as the hangover kicks my balance completely off. I ride a few feet, BAM, catch an edge. Get up, fall down, roll a few feet, throw up. Not necessarily in that order either. Now, the smartest thing to do would be not to drink in the first place before a planned day of riding. But, damage being done, would you just have another drink to "re-equaliberize" or just stick to some green runs and horrify the children with your amazing technicolour yarns

No idea what to tell you. In college I did that frequently. One particularly rough day at A-Basin I puked right after getting off the lift. It was a below zero day and I remember the ralph freezing and some snowboarder saying "Gnarly duuuude!"

If you're not TOO terribly shittered, go for a glass of water between drinks. It helps with the hang-overs the next day. And it reminds of that time at BP's with that giant team pitcher that everyone barely managed to finish...

Drink a pedialyte before bed (or in the middle of night/morning after) and you will be straight. Powerade in the mornin' ready to hit some runs.

I usually just chug water during the night and that handles it.

You could always take a few shots of liquid courage as seen in "The Hair Of The Dog Method" :P

i agree 100%. if you're drinking that heavily, or at all even, if you get drunk you're going to go through withdrawls the next day, so have a drink before you head out & it'll put you straight. but i drink captain & coke like it's water, so maybe that's just a sign i drink too much

i also agree with the alternating drinks with a cup of water. but once you've already gotten a good buzz on.
