Best. Day. Ever.

Today was an absolutely epic day on Seymour. They got 48cm of new, and not typical west coast poo either. The temps stayed low enough that it was actual pow, and stayed actual pow. The day also had no fog, no rain, and even some sun.

Over the course of the day I hit my first street-style box, first picnic table, first ad-libbed 180 off a side hit, and first time on a couple of runs that had been intimidating me. Also spent half the day in the park, hitting the new features they've set up for beginners. Certainly gets my vote for my best day.

So, do you remember a specific day that you'd call your best boarding day? Was it because you nailed something new, or maybe just one of those magic days when everything goes right?

Must say today and tomorrow!

Today I landed my first backflip, 2nd try. Havent even landed a 360 yet. Still great fun learning, havent been on a snowboard since I was 13. Now being 20 and in my first month of boarding again, I like the progression!

Tomorrow! Has been snowing like mad, 30-40cm of sweet fluffy snow. Also testing the big jump and park before its officially opening. Going out at 8:30. Well stoked

2 weeks ago we had a midweek 10" pow day about 6 days before my break. The riding was amazing and I had a great day in general, one of those where your yelling as you hit a roller and jump it..... Plus it was my last good day of this season.

I was up at Snoqualmie yesterday and it was the same way. Had a sweet ass afternoon and night of riding in the powder. My class loved it a ton. They now want powder for every class. I told them they're smart kids and I want the same thing!

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

best day = this season so far. Been doing so much more in riding park features than I thought I would ever do.
Day specific, probably yesterday hitting my 1st big park jumps for big air !!!!!

Sounds like a good day riding for you Donutz

One of my best days ever was last spring, bluebird day with fresh pow hiking Cowboy Ridge above Stevens Pass. Epic.
