Share your day of shredding

I searched and didnt find a thread like this..
Share your day of shredding. Good, bad or ugly post it up here. I'll start.

Got to the hill at 10. Started snowing right when I showed up. Foggy as shit I start lapping the park as fast as I can.. It was so foggy at the top you couldn't tell fog from snow when in the air but was clear a 1/4 of the way down. Started getting comfortable and went to work trying some new tricks. Finally got the balls to hit up the kink rail. Stomped it. Feeling super ballsy I go for the s-rail. Stomp it. Greatest feeling in my life stomping that s-rail. Felt so sick to lock into it. After that I bounced.. Had to go to work but had a awesome day.

Tuesday:
Was ready for a (thin) pow day, was actually all tracked up already. But the snow was smoke pow good. Some hiking to the stashes for a good day. No crowds, maybe 50 people total) Hit 3 jumps, and dropped a lip. Next Saturday should be even better with inches over the abundant foot we got yesterday.

Wednesday afternoon started off good, with some warmed up snow. Later on it got cold and turned to hard pack. Overall had a fun night ripping the hard pack with a couple of buddies.

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

I think I've rode 12 days this entire season. Pathetic. I was over 40 at this point last year.

I just can't get my stoke going with the shitty conditions and now that things are finally starting to come around, I'm still in early season form in terms of conditioning. I'm a fuckin' gaper this year. I take 6 or 7 runs and I'm shot. Gotta go hit the bar and refuel. It's a bitch getting old.

Solid after work session with some Seymour crew. Fresh earlier in the day so soft and fun conditions at night. Schooled on some of the Seymour drops and hits tucked away outta sight

Today was my 6th time out and I was at Elk Mt. in PA. I was carving and leaving nice tight C shaped lines at will. I realized I needed new boots when my toes went numb from having to tighten my laces and straps too tight to keep my heels down.

I think I progressed again nicely as I doing much better on steeps and handling moguls. Last week was my first time in a terrain park, I did a little better this time and had a sick final run where I got nice air of a medium kicker then two melon grabs off the final two features. Overall a pretty good day, and I started linking and doing a little bit of scarving in switch.

just came back from a 3 day trip with 30cm of fresh each day. Lots of tree runs and sidecountry with a few carving runs on nice corduroy too.
