well I ride my ass off everyday I get out, but I also like to have a girl ride me all night long, so the bars are important to my lifestyle. I can balance both to suit my happiness, so once again what works well for one does not always work for another. Just remember once you find that one thing that works for you, there are other things out there that may work as well. Explore and try it all.

yep... i love the riding... i do love a drink or 12 as well though. but when it comes down to it, i'd prefer to stay in and get an early start then to miss a morning of great riding... that night however, i'm there to party... really i guess it all comes down to the quality of each... i'm not even going to miss a crap day riding because i sat at home and got smashed by myself, but i'm sure as hell not going to miss a kickin party if the riding conditions aren't spectacular.

well being an old bastard, i ain't got the stamina for burning the candles at all ends..... and the chance to snowboard comes too few and far between and so i ain't never gonna have a pub night at the risk of missing a good early start on the hill the next day.

for me, i just love riding and if i get to meet up with some new people when doing this, well it just makes the whole thing more memorable and enjoyable.

so get up, eat a huge brekkie, get to the hill for no later than 10ish and then ride all day til last lift. then beer and big food.

then home, change and hot tub with more booze. then bed ways. wake up, and repeat.

i sometimes feel bad for missing the night life, but it is just a question of priorities; i can brutalise my liver when my knees have left me once and for all i reckon!

i agree with you on that one!!! It's like the older I get the more I don't want to pound beers before a day of riding... or hiking... or anything else ... but don't get me wrong If I know its going to be shit the next day i will have a few!

If I have a really good day on the slopes (or near deadly), I tend to binge out on the booze. Then the next day I have the worst hangover in which for the life of me I cannot find my balance. One time at Marmot I slept in the van trying to burn off the binge from the night before, totally missing out on a great snow day. The last time was in Big White where I had to be carried back to my bunk by 5 Aussies and 1 Englishman, which I will call an "Australian Funeral". Strange thing is, the Aussies were so fascinated by my antics they wanted to go drinking with me in Kelowna the next day. Ummmm....no.....

If it was all about the nightlife I wouldn't be spending money on snowboarding.

In South Korea not a lot of bars near the slopes...

Now back in Montana or CO... I liked staying up all night in the hotel, just me my friends, and a nice Keg of Coors Light...

I will always say however that the boarding comes first... if its snowing that night im sleeping getting ready for an early morning full of pow.
