thanks chips.

i just got back yesterday night had a few runs in. the snow was nice after being crowded on saturday. man time sure flies when you have fun. i wish no parks would close @ 5Pm and stay open longer for night runs.

SNOWJ someone will. but most likely it will have to go through some editing first

Word.  That's what my hold up is too.  Editing, without it videos can be unwatchable (mine still are with it thoughLOL).  
 
 
So it was pretty packed for the weekend?  Did boarders at least outnumber skiers with the tru gang being there?

bohemia snow looked a lot better than I thought it would be this weak season...riding, not so much (buttering at 2:22 was nice, but I expected more air and more big surf skashes).  I know it's steeper and faster than it looks, but seems you were holding back....or something. 

20+ hrs drive round trip for one day of snowboarding?...are you insane?

Yeah, insane is about it.  Next year we'll stay longer.  It's worth it when you get a perfect powder day like we got the last year.  Our best stuff definetly didn't get on camera.  We also didn't get too crazy out there.  Two of us were on new to us boards.  And half the hill was closed (well, the lift for it was).

Yeah, I heard they got 10" one night and were supposed to get another 10 out of the stuff that just passed through.  I need the money for plane tickets, those 10 hour drives make it tough to get up there.  I'm just going to have to find a job up that way and get a season pass.  Going to have to get me a awd car first.....and the whole job, place to live, etc.
