Saturday. I picked up my boards at Speed Factory (Dave did a killer base grind). Did a quick base edge bevel and wax on my All Mountain got to the hill at 7:57, I was on the lift at 8:10. Team members in attendance 1(me). First run on Lower Walking Boss, grooming was OK not great. Second run Upper to Lower Walking Boss, the Upper success story from last week was a fluke back to the same old. Flume was actually better than Walking Boss. I hit Flume a couple of times and headed to South Mountain (see shout out below). I have only ridden South in the afternoon and wanted to see what it was like in the morning. I hit Rip Saw first run. They need to learn how to operate the winch cat. The headwalls were crap. I had my first major crash right under the lift; tossed fully over the nose as the board dropped in to **** grooming (that's my story). I landed flat on my back, took a second to gather myself, no major damage (sore hand, slight tweak to shoulder) so I continued on. I did two more runs over there then headed to the Kanc Quad. I rode Porn Star three or four times it was consistent. I saw Andy Flogor making laps waited for a while to ride with him but I never found him. The lines started building up pulled the cord at 10:45. As I was leaving I saw Gleb in the Gondi line, he had his new board, greenish snake skin top graphics, BARF. All the parking was full and the people were still streaming in as I was pulling out, it was a Zoo.
Sunday. I got there on time. PBR roll call: Beth, Lore, and I. Lore went out on her carving board on the lower mountain, Beth and I (me on the SL board) headed to North Peak via Angle Street. Hit Walking Boss on the second run. The light was flat and the grooming wasn't. Switched over to Flume and it was better, did a few on that and went to the bottom to ride with Lore. I saw Joe's NSR making laps on Hero's Highway. Do you get point taken away if your board is making lap and everyone on the lift thinks; "Is that Joe and why is his stance so narrow?". Did three runs on the Highway with my wife, I will take the hit on points. While we were riding up my wife said that she had seen Joe and Beth(Sloane) making laps last weekend. Fess up Joe how many laps??? After a quick break I headed to the Kanc, made a couple of runs. I saw that the race course was pulled and did 4 or 5 on Coolidge St. It was the best snow and grooming that I had seen on the mountain (for the weekend, maybe even the season) even after a morning of race training. Lines were fairly reasonable and I was out of there at 1pm.
Team32 race report. Joe did the Team proud, he race solid at Ski Ward and held down fastest times of the day. The Race Team will be on the road for a race at Ragged next Sunday. Wax up, it is a fairly flat course. Overlays will be available for Team members.

i will take full responsability for my actions the sunday prior to yesterday. it was me, trying to get some brownie points. my heli trip got pushed back a day, so instead of me getting home on the 13th at 11:55pm, im not getting back the 14th at 11:55pm. i know its a hallmark holiday to most of us, it can still get you in aton of $hit. which coul dlead to a couple runs downs hero's highway on a sunday afternoon, when you think noone is looking. but i guess not !
