    How much time passed between your last Hood day and first day of the 11/12 season?

     
    I think a month and a half. This is early october though and not mid september

    Wow elohel. that is what I get for posting that early in the morning. mid october is better, that much closer to the season!

     Day 1

    Went over to a preseason spot my roommate knows about. There is a decent setup, and LOTS of snow. I took some footage of everyone hitting the features, and then I went hiking and got legitimate powder turns...so much fun. Small edit to come after riding today.

    There may have only been this much in town:

    but there was 2-2 1/2 feet in the trees up near the mountain...my board never touched anything but the powder.

    hiking

    and as we left the road got closed because it was dumping the whole time we were there

     Exporting my edit of the spot right now!

    Day 2
    Jeffy's
    Hero 158--really starting to like this board now that I am in a decent weight range for it.

    Did a decent hike to ride some hot pow. Pretty damn fun! After that built a nice little pow booter. Hit it just to test out my knee and it held up, though it is sore after all this. Snow is starting to melt now, but there will definitely be a good amount left over to start the base for the season.

    Day 104: Great end to the season, the snow was slow and sticky but it was good fun riding. First season of instructing was great.

     Day 11 for me today, funnest day of the season so far even though most of it was in spring slush. Watched some bigdogs throw down in the park then carried on with my own wind the windows down thing.

    that was it for the pics. shredded pretty aggressively. tons of bonks, taps and hilarious early season weak legged falls. sick snow, shredded trees, skree fields, you name it. only a couple sharky nips. wait time was 4 to 8 minutes at the longer lift and almost no existent on the other. got pow from 10:30 to 2:30 with a heineken mixed in. totally awesome day, but i may not ride again until Nov. 10 or so. dickteazz

    got up at 5:30 and left eagle-vail at 6 -- drive there was pretty terrifying in a blizzard and it didn't light until 7:45 or so. took 4 hours going down. back in 3. terrific day.

    i think Canada was 110 and then 104 in Perisher, so 214 in a calender year.
