I’ve been a bad blogger lately. Busy hanging out with friends and getting a different sort of riding in. Coming back to mountain biking after a 3yr lay off made me realize I’ve been ignoring a few other sports I used to enjoy a lot – snowboarding and paragliding. Since it’s still winter in Canada I figured if you can’t beat ’em join ’em. My board needed surprisingly little work after at least 5-6 years of storage.
I spent the day at Castle Mountain today riding in 1-2′ of fresh powder. On a day when nobody showed up at the hill.
We never waited for a chair and we literally had whole bowls of fresh snow entirely to ourselves. This was pretty much the best day of boarding that I can remember in the 10 years I’ve been riding. Amazing!
Thanks to the internet snow reports it’s easy to decide when to ride – a flexible job helps. Weekday snowboarding rules…=-)
