Smile Best Run of The Season

What was your best run this season? Describe it or post a video.

Mine was from Parsenn Bowl last week with a group of friends at Winter Park. There were a load of decent natural jumps that we hit before going into the trees near the Panoramic lift. There were moguls there but the snow was rather soft and powdery so they weren't a problem and turned out to be fun.

I would have filmed the whole thing but my old GoPro had stopped reading my SD cards earlier that day. I'm getting a new one next season.

*I already checked for this in the Search and didn't see any. Let me know if there's already one of these threads.

My best run was my first run on my second trip this year. First run in only 3 or so inches of fresh powder, but that little bit of fresh made it 10x the fun, and made everything "click" for me. Gave me confidence to ride more aggressively and progress a lot. Yeah I'm still very noobish, but I take the fact that groomers bore me to death now as a good sign.

Granted I did have some runs where I popped off stuff and landed and that was great too.

My best run was any of the many runs I had in the back bowls at Vail last month when they got 10+ inches of freshies. having just moved here last year from the East Coast, I can honestly say that was the best day of snowboarding I've had in my 14 years of riding.

Not the best run but one of the best days anyway (1st split adventure new addict)

Best pow day was on 1st april, no kidding. Run after run from 9 to 3 with perfect bluebird.That's how a season should end

My best run of the season was when I linked turns for the first time!

Might be worth mentioning it took me longer than most, and it was a short season for me lol.

My daughter and I were on the first chair of Heavens Gate Triple to the Summit of Lincoln Peak and we were truly first tracks (not even ski patrol ahead of us) on Jester all the way down in 8 to 10 inches of fresh. It was our first real POW experience and we whooped and giggled ourselves silly all the way down. One of those lifetime memories.

really tricky to choose so many fun runs this season

The most memorable one is probably Horizon on Cypress.
There was a nice section of it with really nice soft snow, before it goes steep.
This was shortly after I learned to link turns and my 1st day down a blue run.
Had the tunes blasting and the soft snow really had that "surf" feeling to it.

First time it felt like I was really snowboarding

Third day at A-Basin, it was a white out blower. I rode the Lewanee lift to the top, the whole way up I'm thinking WTF am I doing I can't see shit. It's a run I've taken dozens of times, but had to follow the rope line down. Did about a 15' cliff drop by complete surprize, landed it and rode away. That run had that perfect mix of fear and intensity my adrenaline was pumping full force.

Best run this year: Crystal Mountain, WA 12/21 - Northway bc gate for waist-deep light powder in the trees all the way down to the road.

Had a couple other good deep powder days but never so light.

Here's a pic of the distant second best at Alpental, WA, I think 12/28 - Elevator BC gate
