How long do you ride for?

Was at Mt. Creek NJ last week and the conditions were really good. So good in fact that we rode for 5 hours straight. By the time the 5th hour came around I was done. So beat that on my 2nd to last run I ate it bad on my ass and it felt like I split my ass in half. Took me about 5 minutes to recover from that one plus the guys thought it was funny as shit. It was only my 4th time snowboarding and I think I did pretty damn good. I was riding with guys that've been doing this for 6-7 years and they were impressed. Not bad for a 40 year old i guess.

So how long do you guys ride before you call it quits?

Talking Depends

When the season is on, the snow is over 3hrs drive from where I live, so if I am going to drive 6hrs in a day for boarding I am getting as much carve time as I can.

But on the other hand I got back a few weeks ago from 11 days in Japan in some awesome powder. Average day was 8am to 4.30pm with an hour for lunch. If I am paying good money to fly to another country to board, I am not wasting it sitting about. Maximum snow time.

Sore legs go away after 4 days and I am almost 45yrs old and I only started boarding in June 09.

If I'm at the resort (which isn't too often) I'll ride anywhere from 4-8 hours. If I'm just at my house by my self hitting my jumps or rails, usually 1-3 hours.

I usually ride 8 hours. On a weekend I ride from 8am to 5pm with a break for lunch. Sometimes I take a half day off from work and ride 1pm-9pm. I'm only 21 though, I give you older guys mad props for going 5 hours. I hope I am still able to do that when I'm your age. I have a torn ACL so my knees might not be very happy with me down the road.

4-6 hours depending on how the conditions are and how hard work was that day. My first day of the season when I was at a place with real snow I was able to ride for 8 hours because I could ride on the board instead of just the edge. I'm 26 and this is my first full year.

Ride creek as well.

8 to 6 with 15 minute break around 10:30 + 3:30 and 30-60 minute break for lunch.
1-9 with 15 minute break around 3:30 + 5:30

Try and carry Gatorade bottle in pants and a couple of cliff bars in my jacket for food.

Yesterday was great, actually learned to enjoy moguls. They are a different style of riding and very tiring.

My other ride is a

I'm on mountain when the lifts open until they close. Of course I take breaks whenever i'm hungry or gotta take a piss. Usually always go back to my car at least once to grab some food and get more water.
