Best Time to Board

When do you enjoy boarding the most and why?
During the day or at night? Stealing an hour or two after getting off school/work, or indulging yourself during holidays?

I myself love night boarding, that twilight zone between the darkness and the lights is the most fun because there's just enough light to see but not enough to really see the condition of the snow so it's a blast just reacting to how the snow is, if that makes any sense.

Don't like night boarding unless its powder. Prefer sunny pow or sunny warm slushy park laps. I hate the transition period you are talking about cant see shit.

I like any day with good conditions and no lines. Which I don't ever get. So I tend to like night boarding.

i prefer early morning to take advantage of the groomers before they get chewed up, then I just switch boards and go into jib mode. I hear about the noobs thing, so annoying see a bunch of them sitting down in the middle of a run. I was about to hit a kicker the other day but some idiot was sitting down on it making a phone call...
