Tore that mountain up yesterday!

I went snowboarding yesterday and made that mountain my bitch! I went with my friend that forgot his board last time, he actually managed to remember it this time. The snow conditions weren't too great yesterday though... There has been a lack of snow in Flagstaff lately and the mountain has been suffering. There were some spots on the mountain that were bare almost down to the dirt and the snow that was there was pretty icy. But with that bad news comes some good news. My town is getting dumped with snow right now and there is already a foot of fresh pow up on the mountain. If there isn't too much wind tomorrow Snowbowl should have the lifts open and I am going to get me some fresh powder! Here are a couple pictures and a video of my friend boarding.

The picture above is of our biggest lift, Aggasiz.

This picture is taken from the heart of the bowl. Only steezy shredding from here!


Before people criticize me about my filming abilities I will say that I have no experience in film and shot this with my Droid Incredible so the quality isn't amazing.

  10. The Canada Winter games is going on around here. Ski Martok is having the boarding competitions today. I'm surprised, because Martok sucks.
