ok so I did my first day boarding yesterday, bruised my knew a bit wiped out lots but really enjoyed it.

thing is when I went to bed last night I couldn't sleep because all I could think about was transferring my weight and raising.my heel/toe to turn lol

I'm sure this isn't just my experience but thought I would share lol

You can further enhance that with music. If you listen to the same playlist the entire season you get conditioned. Now every time I hear these tracks while driving on an empty highway at night I can almost feel the snow and start to smile :)

Yes, that's normal. Whenever I take off my snowboard boots and go home it feels like they're still on.

Also, if I hear a song from a snowboarding video/movie, each time I hear that song again I can sort of "replay" what happened in the movie at the exact time the song was playing. It makes me feel extremely accomplished.

Haha it's normal all right, I've had dreams after a day on snow where I hit a jump or something and the "landing" woke me up!

It seems that most of my riding playlists have the same song around the 6-7 hour mark. Second last run of the day, big radius medium speed carves, jelly legs and the low sun....favorite feeling ever.

Now whenever it plays in the office, I get a goofy look on my face and space out thinking about those runs.

It's definitely normal. I get that feeling all the time. I love it, although it feels kinda strange walking at the end of the day.
