I have never been. Although, I do end up on a lift with people who do from time to time. I don't even like to drink and board.
The other day, I had two beers and opted to ski back down to the base area where I was parked instead of getting a ride to my car from a friend. Riding down was crazy. I didn't feel focused or comfortable.

Well, I have done cigs and on the lifts to get a nice buzz. Getting high I did once and didn't like it. Like, fuck who can go down a hill when your mind and thoughts keep reseting and I don't focus at all on boarding I just kept going straight, fall on my ass and repeat. So maybe cigs or cigars but no getting high on the lifts or anything.

I got high for the first time a couple of weeks ago, I rly don't understand the whole concept of "u do it better when ur high".. I was screwed up that night man, could barely walk without falling.

Waiting for MPD to chime in.

I blaze prob half the times i ride. Usually in the car before I get my boots on. I have a great time rocking out to the ipod and carving smooth mellow turns on groomers. It sometimes makes it seem like shit is coming up on you faster and some steeper stuff really gets your heart pumping. But overall I enjoy it. Fun way to ride. really puts you in the zone

It usually wears off faster than usual i feel. Prob has something to do with the adrenaline snowboarding makes.

I dont really do it on powder days or in the slack/backcountry. That stuff is fun enough. Plus you kinda need to be all there for the decision making and the physical exertion and whatnot.

I dunno, Its just a way to mix it up sometimes.

I dont like to drink and ride though. It makes me kind of wreckless and i usually get hurt.



PS, I cant wait to read some of the over zealous puritan anti-drug responses.

Not a Puritan, but if you don't grow your own or know specifically where it's being grown, odds are you're supporting the Mexican drug cartels --and they're now growing a lot of it in the US rather than Mexico. Those fuckers are trashing National Forests in the SW. Dumping chemicals in creeks to catch fish, shooting all kinds of animals, dumping pesticides all over, etc. High Country News, a Western US environmental newspaper (High Country News) ran an expose on this a couple years ago. I stopped smoking years ago because I'd get super paranoid, but learning about this issue has turned me fully against it.

Would the problem go away if it were legalized? Yeah, but that's a different issue.

I really have to get in a groove when riding high, I dont really start out confident while im high but it comes in a while I guess. I actually did a trick this year that I'm not sure if I would try it sober
