Sunny and 30 all day. First lift up and lines not too bad all day. Another perfect and last day skiing. Killer trip and awesome conditions all week. Again Ski Tracks only got half the day but we probably had another 25k vertical. Highlight Avery's huge jumps in Ute Park. Too much fun.
Cold 16 degrees and powder day with groomer and 6" new pow. 2 slow but fun Loops at a ridiculously low 4/4.5 PSI. Very tight packed line and i kept dropping the tire air and that kept me upright. Classic snow biking for 2 hours and a real workout. RB is place to be for the corduroy!
2 great rides this morning in the 20's. Hick Glen first up and first time there are n 3 years almost. Remembered the whole thing even with a half inch of snow and a little ice. No a lot of hills but a good warm up for Tree Farm. Novi was fun too and loads of FatBoys out. Dropped tires to 8/10.5 and that proved to be sweet spot. Great ride and perfection in cool riding temps. New ski shorts were perfect addition to staying warm. Now on to the snow.
Woo, 9am and 43 degrees with a 9 in WSW to start 20-25 with very flat water. Keith out early and Mark and I right behind. Starting it on Duke first working well and swell building by noon it's 30 and 9 fully depowered. JB and Craig join fun by 10:30 and everyone is lit on 9's. Cold and to the Mako for round 2 before 1pm. Great carving and getting covered in my own heelside spray. Winds now 35 and really should be on 7. Legs toasted at this point from trenching the edges. Couple peaks of sun heading east is blinding in the mirror of the swell. Nice curling sets everywhere too. Pablo joins on his 8m and is spinning and crashing occasionally trying gusty moves in big gusts. By 3pm I'm spent and coming in - really big gusts and winds still building. Killer day over 5 hours well worth the drive and skipping MB. Best news is new Boost is bone dry and toasty all day.
Nice day with SSW 15-35 and pure sun with 55 degrees. Perfect Duke and 9m to start right along breakwall. Carving on glass with little swell but lots of good heelside throwing water buckets. Got some great jumps on the Mako too just never pulled fully on the bar as I thought I might go to the moon! Epic fun with 5 hours on water slashing and spraying. Worthy of the drive. Just need more west in it time.
12m rigged at ready at 3pm Thursday and it picks up from 15-20WSW to 20-25SW and Craig pulls out 9. So I do too. Good move with Duke and mostly zero depower next 3 hours into sundown. Great time racing heelside throwing buckets going along shorebreak. Really fun in front of beach and out at shoal point where waves were 2-3' with occasionally 4-5'. Perfection of orange sunset and clear skies. Wetsuit fine with 6mm booties. Who needs a drysuit when you powered and trenching? Need this again soon.
