Bluebird day at Turoa! My legs recovered well after yesterday so was up for some solid riding. Found some good freeride lines that led to the terrain park for some air time. Felt my riding come back today to a level that which I was happier with.

There was only one top lift open but the terrain was fun to ride. Maybe there is potential to ride Ruapehu (after riding European, Canadian and USA resorts for years) ...albeit to score mid-week-blue-sky-powder-daze?

Started to feel that my Burton T6 159 is too aggressive a set up for NZ's short'n'narrow runs and tight terrain. (Great board for big mountains though)May look at a softer rockered board around 154-156.

Had a great sesh and felt my riding consolidate. Now I'm super keen to ride some powder somewhere. Snowboarding offpiste in a powder day on a big mountain is as good as a cross-off reefbreak DTL wave riding session in my books...
