Woah what a weekend. Sh#t got cray in the koots, all sorts of drugs. The ones that make see sh#t.

Several days of pow shredding with out bindings but tons of hallucinogenics led to a very sore brain.

As far as the race went I came last on the clock but first in everyone hearts..

Posted a couple pics on my blog, if you don't wanna check em out who cares.

My leg wasn't functioning so good today, turns out I was a little too mangled on the sled ride back from the race, ended up falling off and getting run over. D'oh!

Nice Luke, good post on your blog & some awesome photos. I haven't seen Keith for a long time! I also notice on your blog that you "accepted" a climbing challenge with me??? I seem to remember YOU being the one doing the challenging & myself accepting :-) you may want to think about editing that so your readers don't get the wrong idea.


Anyways back to shredding here's an edit of some shaky footage from catboarding last week. We didn't set any records but it was a whole lotta type 1 fun with good buddies. We all work together & us getting a shred day together is virtually impossible with schedules as one of us always needs to be there so it was awesome it finally came together 2 years in the making.

I had the first lift assist day of my 45th SkeezinSeason today. . . Crystal clear and gorgeous at Blacktail Mountain, just south of Kalispell.

What a blast!

It was my first time skeezin at this area. It's one of those where you drive to the top of the mountain and the ski area is below you.

DARLING PLACE!

25 years ago I had my first lift day of my 20th SkeezinSeason (at MMSA) on Karhu XCD Comps and Asolo Extremes. . . so I MADE myself ride that stuff for half the day. . . as a celebration of how strong I USED TO BE!

Dood. . . that shit's hard to ski on!

:-)

Arrargh......return from back east to an apparent long dry spell in Ca. It started so good...since Dec 5 we got in 28 days of snow fun (resort ski, b/c ski, snowshoeing) in 5 states...now a stall. Headed up to Seattle end of Jan for the sailboat show thinking of hopping over to Whistler. We've never been.

I did catch a few runs back home at Holiday Valley in Ellicotville, NY. Very tame. No camera but here is a pic from my very first season of skiing last century, circa 1956 at Holiday Valley (with my bro). At that time they only had tow ropes and T-bars.

My brother in front, me behind in wool knickers, 1956.

Sorry the snow Gods and Goddesses weren't more kind on your big day.
I'll PM ya when we are up there and let you know if we're going to make a run for the border. It's been a ski area we've been wanting to check out. Thanks!
