One more day! One more day!

My nutty ass boss (excuse me "project manager") dropped a bombshell that I dont have to come in tomorrow and work. I got the word at 8 PM in South Bay. By 11:45 I was tucked in nicely in South Lake Tahoe (I've learned to keep my shit waxed and ready just in case.)

One more day. I get ONE MORE DAY in 2013!

That is all.

Just woke up. No morning person. But your post managed to make me smile
Do some turns for me - No, do a lot of turns for all of us!

Excellent! Are you in Kirkwood today? Things are looking pretty bleak all over North Lake, dirt patches, exposed rocks. Although, word is that a big dump is expected for Monday--maybe you'll get snowed in and stuck there one more day? Have fun!

Ohhhh yeah. Last day. I was at Kirkwood and it was quite good for spring conditions. The cold helped keep the snow a bit dry. It was sunny though...and I sprinted across the mountain and back knowing it would be my last turns for a while. Even if there is a dump...my chances of getting back up are slim.

I cant wait until December! Lol

Epic season. Will always be remembered as the season I said...awww fuck it. I'm 3 hours from Tahoe. I am going to learn to snowboard again.

I know right? As a kid I've had season where I got days in both October and May.

Seriously though.. I still think East coast is better than West coast. Thats my observation after this season. I think its harder and makes for better riders. Westies are petty spoiled. I came pretty close to doing the Wall at Kirkwood coming back after a 12 year hiatus (so no I didnt need to learn to turn all over again but I did have to practice dynamic on steeps and I still havent got back to riding switch at all.) I was with a Kirkwood instructor and we would have gone if it wasnt too late in the day for her to get up there and back. That was only because I learned while shredding upper Zachary that it doesn't hurt if you fall out here. I took a full on digger at like 35 mph and laughed about it. Do that on Haulback at that loaf when its sheer ice and you wont be laughing (after you get your wind back that is.) It doesn't take a ton of technique to huck yourself off a cliff or down a chute into feet of fresh snow.

I cant wait to get back on the east coast next season. C'mon November!
