Went to sunrise Az yesterday and it was great! 40 degree's sunny and no wind! I am a beginner and no one has ever yelled at me but i try to be very sure i am in no one's way! I did see a snowboarder and a skier throwing blows on the terrain park yesterday pretty stupid since everyone is there to have fun. When they came down with the ski patrol the skier looked like a 50 year old dude lol.

I am almost 99% sure that we rode in the same gondola on sunday based on your board and pants.

so today was 65 sunny and windy, there were 2ft deep ponds that were 20ft wide in between lifts. my boots were soaked, finally landed my front 3 melon. did a noseslide fakie out, and met the most interesting person Ive ever met on the hill. a 70 year old snowboarder, been doing it for 8 years now, he also rides dirtbikes, atv's, harleys, rollerblades, runs marathons and runs up 180 flights of stairs 3x a week. I hope Im in his shape when Im 70. he told me he had OCD, and that his compulsions would drive him to be indecisive, he said he could never decide which bicycle to ride (were talking high end road bikes here) or which dirtbike to take out. I nonchalantly stated "Sir, I wish I had your problem"

so Im going to keep in touch and he actually passed me on the flats today. i was impressed he was carving up some icier blacks pretty well. I think I rode with him for about two hours just talking and riding, very interesting day today

Sounds like fun

I regret deciding not to make the 1.5 hour drive for an afternoon of riding so i could run some errands (get a haircut) and pack some stuff (I'm moving next week). Can't get snowboarding off the mind :-/

Yesterday was so much fun!!!

Despite actually stopping in the middle of a flat run because of the spring slush just grabbing my shit, the park was still fun to ride and fuck around in.
