Slush Sucks

yesterday, the temperature here in st.louis got up 55 degrees. I tried to get some riding in but our local hill was complete slush. I have not really ridden in these conditions before but it was the worst. The board felt like it would barley turn and was really unstable.

Anyway, I just needed to vent a little. This is what I hate about St.Louis, we get the worst weather. It is raining today and we are expecting thunderstorms, in February, WTF!!!! I cannot wait to move out west.

I think I even prefer ice to slush.

Up here in WI we might only have 2 more weeks or so. Most of our hills face south east and the sun and warm temps it melts fast. Getting in as much late season riding as possible

Yesterday we had a foggy, rainy, wet snow. Jacket shells were soaked, but still stayed somewhat warm

it was 50 here in ny yesterday. i rode in a t-shirt and my boardpants, with a helmet on since i was doing all park. i barely got wet at all because i only bailed once (my best session ever!) but some people were drenched in the lodge. my friend was in jeans and a hoody and he was fine. i like the slush to some extent because you hold an edge better in artificial snow, imo.

the conditions were so good that a guy brought his speakers to the park and left them on the snowcat all day
for anyone that ever goes to maple ski ridge- it is pretty G

i enjoyed the slush yesterday just wished it was a little faster. it seems to suction your board to the ground. i was at paoli but ride stl sometimes too. gashed my shin ope on my last boxrail of the day so i may be done for the season. definitely done with the rails, may hit some jumps but this f'r hurts BAD.

Slush means that you're going to be going slow, but it doesn't hurt as bad to fall in as ice.

Slush can be fun, but it depends on the type of slush really. If it's spring slush, then it's no big deal. A little slower to ride, but not bad. If it's it's mid winter, we're getting rain not snow slush, then it sucks. Either way, take what you got and ride it till it's gone!

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!
