Awesome feeling when you go from the clouds and rain into the sun up top!!!

Well still sore from the traversing out west yesterday, and a bad nights sleep, just kept catching edges everywhere all morning and boarded like a kook!

Changed a lot after lunch. Upper mountain was still nice a powedery, and we played a bit more on the drops and natural features.

Everything came together and really stocked with my riding now after 2 seasons. 1s are easy now, and getting some 3s down more now. Just need to work on switch riding more now.

Cloud hung off all day until about 3pm when the rain cllouds came up and just blew us off the mountain.

What a season!!!
