Glad the new one's on the way because my current board is quickly turning into a rock board...
Torpedo and I are heading to Sunshine on Sunday. I should get my azz up to 16th Avenue on Saturday am and go to the Lake with you. I do have a free day on my card.

You need to expand your horizons just a little bit....it doesn't make me angry that I wasn't there to ride the great pow, but it does make me sick to my stomach to think you wasted such a good day on Strawberry! That better be one hell of a video clip.
I disagree.... the worst part is the transition from far side divide back to angel. If you are not going full speed at about 1/3rd down you are screwed.

Well i went to goats eye and i got fucked over a fucking cliffside without any coverage. So i tried to jump it and i bounced off a tree. Angel was shit because of the bowl entry with all the rocks and standish was not that good. I went on angel and goats eye and wawa, strawberry and standish and strawberry was the best. i did ride my billy goat and its was amazing. Keeping it. strawberry had awesome pow spots that were untracked, so did goats eye but the wind of the chairlift and long ride wasnt for the that day. Also hells kitchen didnt get as much coverage because wind blew it to fucking china. 15 in a 1hrs was retarded. Obviously i didnt lap it tthat much but i was: strap in, pow in your face, chairlift, strap in, pow in your face, chairlift, repeat. No lines for the lift and i was going hard core downhill cuz i wanted to get the next line already.

That's the best part! I love that part!.... Strawberry is just as flat, either flat at the top if you right or flat at the bottom if you go left, at least on Angel you can open up the throttle without having to dodge 50 ski school kids like on Strawberry. That mountain is full of flat spots, but it's fine if you know where they are and when to point to board straight, even Goats Eye has some flat spots.

This is a very good thing! All that pow is going into the wild west! Probably my favorite part of sunshine!

So many runs so little time.
