LL is decent, a lot of snow but very tracked out. We found a few patches of soft stuff on the backside hiking off paradise. Was nice to meet you arsenal too bad you had to take off, next time we will ride!

Yeah, it blew I had to leave so soon. Can't really call it a meeting per se, but I look forward to having a real day on the hill with you before year end. I had to bail as I only had an hour and then had to meet my bud who blew out his knee. When I got to the bottom he found me and was more than ready to leave. Did you and Poutenen hit some kickers?

Ya we hit up paradise and then the platter and then we came around front side for a couple park laps. Hit the L line but no XL today, maybe tomorrow if I'm feeling good. That whale tail looks scary ill be avoiding that hahah. Poutenen did pretty good off the m line, if we had more time I woulda got him on the L line for sure 😃. Next time! Dude can rip the choppy stuff though we had a good time.

Thanks gents! Yeah was great riding with you all today... Seriouscat, most of the mountain is tracked out, but the groomers were in good shape, and my usualy spots for some of the fluffier stuff were good as usual!

Sorta wish I had thrown the helmet cam on but it was fun riding without thinking about filming anything. I think the best run of the day was off in some of the larch area glades. I tried to lose Arsenalfan in there but I couldn't shake the guy!

Tried a stupid FS 180 off a small jump and muffed it pretty bad, landed on my ribs and I'm a hurtin unit now! Gotta spend more time in the park once I've got this big mountain thing out of the way. Now I'm wondering if I'm going to have to jack myself on Advil or Percocets on competition day.

I've got a couple pics, I'll upload them soon!

"I think the best run of the day was off in some of the larch area glades. I tried to lose Arsenalfan in there but I couldn't shake the guy!

I appreciate the accolades but I absolutely sucked ass today! And you know it....lol. No more shotgunning brewskies before shredding with you. I really don't know what I expected, but I certainly didn't think you would be at that skill level. I thought I could get away with my B game and that you would be an average rider. Not a chance. I couldn't believe when you jumped into those tight trees and just kept gaining speed. I thought to myself....keep up....wholly shit....or your going to be spending the night on the mountain cuz you don't know where the hell you are! I appreciate you looking over your shoulder and waiting up. My riding will only benefit from taking in a few more days with you out there. I have so many holidays it is sickening, so when you get the itch, let me know and we can head out. I don't mind riding Louise. And I promise you will see a different ARSENALFAN on the mountain in the next week or two. Torpedo wants to ride with you guys too. And that girlfriend of yours is fearless. Watch out. Because it won't be long before she is lapping you! Cheers!!

Bah!!! Don't beat yourself up, just making it down some of those runs is tough enough, and I've been in those glades before so I know there are no surprises when you round the next corner. Well board again soon and have some brewskis AFTER last chair!!!

I think we'll have to take my GF into the larch glades next time (not sure if they have an actual name but that's what I'm calling them from now on). I think she'd have a blast in there! If we had more time I'd like to do a few laps through them... And she says she can't wait!

to all and to all a good night! lol

I wish you could post that picture with her dangling off the edge of that cornice. I like that one and would like to show my wife.
