Super windy today only T-bars open. Just checked 8 chair looks like it's running
Was the textured base how it came from the factory, or did you have a shop put a spring structure on the base?Last spring I rode my K2 Simple Pleasures exclusively, its wide and has a very textured base. I was leaving my mates behind on every run, especially the flatter sections.
YUCK! What is that stuff at the bottomToday wasn't a bad day. They are starting to close a few runs at Perisher. Was 6C today. Rode Mount Perisher still holding the snow. Went and checked out Threbo. Not much snow there compared with Perisher. View attachment 154728 View attachment 154729 View attachment 154730 View attachment 154731 View attachment 154732
My last day there was Sunday just gone, and it wasn't much different except for slightly more cover by the sounds of it.. and it really wasn't that bad - I enjoyed it more than the ice skating you can experience in a lot of the perisher runs. Good time to just practice stupid stuff without breaking a bone in my mindI rode my Dart today at Perisher in proper deep slush and mashed potatoes. It was 11*C with a warm wind blowing.
Riding it in soft snow has really changed the way I feel about the board, today was a lot of fun!
Had a funny experience the other day going up the Leichhardt chair. Just about to dismount and the lifty at the top was shoveling snow on the flat pad from the left side. The clown was not looking what he was doing and didn't see the approaching chair with his head down. As we approached the aluminium shovel got caught under my Custom and the skier next to me. I yelled out and moron just dropped shovel and we ran over the top of it as we dismounted. Fucking idiot. Checked my base straight away and lucky no marks other than tiny edge grind over 20cm on heal side rear foot. I would have gone and made Perisher pay for a new board if it was damaged. Looked back at the lifty and he went back inside his shed and hid out of sight. 🤡Jesus Craig, I was gonna ask the same thing -- how the hell, in the middle of a pandemic, is the parking lot still packed a la "heaps of tourists/kooks who wander on up at midday, have to park 100m up from Smiggins, and walk up to Perisher Center"???
Gents, good on you for making the most of the season!
