Went Friday, doing the jump line. Did a heelside washout, ended up with slush up my back.

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH that's cold!


Error 404. Coffee not found.

Damnit, our season just ended yesterday. I was getting slush in early March here too... *sigh* Now I have to wait 6 months till next season. And I'm already out of snowboarding movies to watch.

55 degrees in metro-Detroit on Friday ditched work at lunch and rode a few hours with some friends. Perfect sunny skies, t-shirt riding, lots of tow rope laps in the park. Definitely one of the most fun days I've had locally probably since closing day last season.

Wolfy turned me onto these Teflon wipes either made by or called ZORDO (think that's right)

Tried them yesterday and they're awesome. I used the same wipe twice (they're like baby butt towelettes) and got 3-4 runs out of each wipe.

The guys in the gear shop said to wipe down the base with the ZORDOs before you hot wax and it's $$$$.

Gonna try it, with my OBJ warm wax. Hoping the second I dump a nice thick layer of warm wax on it will get cold and snow! lol......

EDIT__ oh ya... spring skiing is my second favorite too. This was yesterday, 3/30/13

Pdx, those wipes are sweet for the spring for sure! He showed me those last season when I came down around May. They made such a big difference in the super sticky snow. Was great until the torrential downpour and thunder and lightning showed up.

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

definite party atmosphere on the hill, good times, music, corn, life is good

enjoy Neni! must be nice

maybe not all over with here either, not at all unusual for us to get a late storm, couple years ago we got 16" the day after closing day

thinking of visiting my bro in portland again too, i see that all the hills out there have 2 weeks or more after we close

Not seeing anything about sordo or zordo teflon on the google. Having trouble figuring out how wiping the base first would help. Does it bond to wax or something?
