I really had high hopes for this season, even hailing it as the BEST EVER but I swear, it’s almost like there is some greater force trying to prevent me from riding lately. You may remember the pass-pulling incident of 2010. That didn’t help things. Then it turns out the “Super Value” element of my Ski Bowl pass is actually sort of annoying, seeing as today seemed like a mighty nice day to snowboarding in honor of MLK, but alas, it’s blacked out.
I’ve concocted a scheme to get tickets at Tline by giving them coverage. The only thing, I’m trying to make it look good up there and every time I’ve tried to go, well, it hasn’t been. One day it was arguably the worst conditions I’ve ever ridden on the west coast (those frozen ridges that happen when the groomer tracks freeze) and the next, raining. But I decided to make the best of it, take advantage of the waterproof nature of my ever-growing collection of GoPros and Shane Flood’s sweet skills and make a video. Since the pineapple express proceeded to drop about 8 more inches of rain, needless to say, if I want to keep the stream of GoPro edits going, I’ll have to post it here as well as on YoBeat. So here ya go.
