I had a blast on Saturday ! the snow was not too bad in a few places. Under the Kook-a-mung-gus quad was perhaps the best run in the mid morning and afternoon as it was not all lumped up and not much traffic. I saw a half dozen hardbooters all day. I rode with 2 locals, and a 14 year old kid on a Rentiger who was part of the Mountain dew race and he was "OK" on it, so I gave him a few pointers and by the end of the day he gtting much lower and edging better in his turns.
I saw a guy blast past me in a red coat over near the Gondola around 2:00 but I didnt catch up as I was having fun dilly-dallying and waiting up for a lady friend of mine on skis who was a tad slow in the 65 degree.....
I took 4th place in the age 26 to 35 male Snowboarder catagory (out of 18 racers). I scrubbed speed on one gate because I was wayyyyy too up on edge and my ballance was not where it needed to be and I feared dumping myself on the boilerplate and slush. Was my first time doing the dew finals and also riding all day @ Loon in hardboots.
EDIT: ok apparently I saw the unofficial results and I actualy took LAST PLACE.... hahahah..... Oh Captain Morgan.... how you failed me !
