Day two for first trip of season... Stayed the night at station lodge so not up at 4:30am like the day before (thank god)!

Almost no wind today and another blue bird day. Primo!!!

Few new features popped up overnight to have a play on and just stocked as again! Best one was a big mound the snow machine had piled up over a few days. So soft powdery landing :) little hard entry as you lost heaps of speed, wish I played on it a bit more as you often don't find powdery landings often lower mt!

GoPro footage below from the two days, edited by my flatmate (always has days off, dam firemen roster is sweet!).

Highlights of trips are heaps of bails and catching a few edges when tired and getting the feel again (wear a helmet kids!)...; cut off my flatmate to avoid gumbies who had stopped in the middle of the track (!!!)...left him plenty of room only to fell my bag being pulled hard and then I was on the ground....10s later be caught a big edge infront of me (haha, carma); Nick bruising his arse big time (no I haven't seen it!) but looking real good only after his 3rd day on mt. thumbs up, oh yea and nick boarding like rubbish after our beer at lunch (haha).

I'm the rider with the blue helmet, red bag, blue/pink/white board, and the guy always cutting off the camera ;)

3 thumbs up!
