Sorry, we had rainy powder yesterday. It was great until our outerwear didnt hold off the water any more. Lol.....

Chomps has fallen ill and hopefully we can get him back out tomorrow.
Oh dear. What on earth did you guys do to poor Chomps?!
Bit of a long story but, the TLDR version is,...

I came down with some sort of stomach bug. Really jacked me up for a couple days.

Altho hearing that I missed out on a thorough, wind driven soaking on Thursday. Took a tiny bit of the sting out of missing 2 days of my trip sick in bed. :sad:

(...between feeling ill & the Hotels shitty wifi! I apologize for my absence of contributing posts to this thread. :embarrased1:


Heres a couple of pictures from today.

It started out about as crusty as it can be with very rough groomers. It ended up quite nice with softening trails and snow falling.

Neni brought pounds of cheese and chocolate for our tailgate lunch party.

Left to right in the first picture....

Kk2242 doing a great job turning down the intermediate slopes. Great job for a first year rider.

Awesome group of people!
Kind, generous, funny as all hell! I've had about as much fun at the tailgates & dinners as I have on the slopes!

(....and Kk2242 was KILLIN' it for a 1st season rider with 18-20 days!!! ):eek:

She handled icy, steep shit that woulda had me sideslippin' my ass off my first season!!! :blink:

Well done!!! Big time Congrats Gurl!!! ;) :grin: )

We had a blast riding with such a great crew! It was so awesome to watch the crew leaving the chairs and shredding those groomers into pieces :D
Super stoked to ride with @Rogue, never ridden together with a gal before and it was so much fun to ride first to last chair.
Thanks a ton to all for making our stay such a fun experience! We missed the pow but had a ton of fun nonetheless.
Conditions: firm in the morning, slightly softer at noon; those bowls made the legs work, lol.


Today's SBF crew: Mr. Neni, @Rogue, @Argo, @ridinbend, @16gkid, @neni, @KK2242 @chomps1211, Argo Jr.



Thanks a ton to @Argo and family! You made us enjoy this place so much!

No problem! It was a lot of fun riding around with you guys even it if was just ripping groomers. You guys are welcome any time, stay longer next time so we have a better chance at powder. I still cant believe that you all missed it by a day. Hopefully we get out to CH and get to rip around your ski area in some powder next winter. :snowboard1::snowboard2::drink::drink:

I am still surprised we had the group we did from so many places. @16gkid was here all the way from Chicago, making an epic journey over 2 weeks hitting a bunch of resorts.... I will likely see you again in Grand Targhee on Friday.... @neni from Switzerland. @chomps1211 from Michigan, it was good to see you again. @KK2242 down from Spokane, so quiet but you make such great improvements on riding even in just one day. @Rogue down from Portland, always a pleasure to see you ripping around.

On the road to Washington w @chomps1211 to meet @wrathfuldeity. Bagage Tetris :). Who would have thought how much gear fits into a Subaru, lol.



First day at Crystal Mountain: was raining hard but had such a great day shredding with the guys.

Wrath brought some good ol' camber boards: WOW! Holy!!! I had such a blast carving that old '04 Option Trinity 158 full camber! That board felt as if it was built for me :laugh: Got a HUGE smile tucked to my face! Thanks, Wrath, for lending that board to me! Had a hard time to let her go :)

Was a pleasure to meet n ride with you guys!
