    Nice video Sean! I wish I could counter with some GoPro footage of my own, but you know how that one goes...

    Great photos Kelly! I had no idea I was on camera. I like the POOF from the arm drag, haha. I def made the most of that day.

    Snowmass was absolutely stellar today.

    Tomorrow first tracks @ Ajax should be near perfection.

    You bastards! It's been a month today since we had even a cloud in the sky, let alone snow. Still, the cord is cordy.

    Carry on enjoying yourselves, you jammy sods.

    Day 6 - Snowmass

    Not many pics today, but another day of cold temps, sunshine and sweet groom! Though the rest of me is willing, my legs now have the strength of soggy kleenex - so decided to hang out at the demo tent a bit! Tried Angie's Coiler Classic yesterday afternoon and this morning, then switched to a Donek Free Carve 163, and then to completely finish off my legs, put a Donek plate on the FC for a couple of runs!

    photos:
    1 & 2) Donek FreeCarve 163 with plate.
    3) Montucky rest stop - Little Debbies! Yum!!!

    Day 7 - Best day ever!!!

    Really can't believe it's over, but it must be true because I'm almost out of ibuprofen! The session finished off with a perfect bluebird day and hero groom! Chilly again in the morning, warming in the afternoon - couldn't ask for a better day. Started off with First Tracks down Copper Bowl, then moving to Buttermilk - yum!

    photos:

    2) The fantastic view up top on a perfect day.
    3) Snowman ready to roll.

    Really have to say the afternoon was probably my best day ever on a snowboard! Got a new Coiler VSR about a month ago, took it for 6 runs and.... hated it. To be fair, I was riding injured, in poor conditions & hadn't done any tuning on it, but I put it in a closet and whined for about a month anyway. But finally got it out, changed the tune and my binding setup and gave it another go on Friday at the Milk and... WOW! That board is like opening up a can of 'Instant Rockstar'! I finally kissed and made up with the Raven Sun board, and I have to say that make-up carving really is the best!!!

    1) Ravens over Aspen.
    2) A little of the damage done at Buttermilk - and this was taken before noon!!! Good work everyone!

    Bravo Boys and Girls

    Cowabunga, what a Day at the Milk yesterday

    The most Wonderful Carving going on I have seen so far at one time and place, all
    Stylin the Milk, safe journeys to all... It will take me the rest of the season to lay that much track on the hill at Milkland, but I will try

    Tumbelina




    After finding my camera 5 days later, on the mountain in the subzero temps I still had more than enough battery to shoot this one on the top of Buttermilk.

    Getting on the airplane right now. I feel like I have a snowboarding hangover.

    My first SES was a blasty blast. The carving (especially the last two days) was sick!

    Thanks Fin and Michelle for making all this goodness happen.

    Talking

    Did a little post session carving at highlands and buttermilk today. The snow was outrageously good but it's more fun when everyone is here. I'm happy to report that although they TRIED to groom out all the trenches we left at buttermilk, they couldn't get it all out, or even much of it for that matter.

    Snowmass Saturday

    Ann and I rode Snowmass today. OMG it was good. We would really like to stay longer, but now we have to go home and work to pay for Brad and Alaina's education.

    I'll hopefully start uploading all the photos tomorrow night, which means they should be available sometime Monday evening or Tuesday morning. I'll publish the download URL when the upload is complete.

    We miss everyone already...

    P.S. I suck at Bomber Jeopardy!

    Here is the last video played at the banquet: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RIHYdBomuTs Enjoy! It's still processing after the upload so the resolution is poor. It should be available in 720p HD in a few hours.

    Thanks again to all the volunteers that make SES happen. See you again next year!

    So I made it home after 2 airports did NOT have a plane for me to get on.
    lots of beer, hot dog, chips, Cliff bar,6 Pepsi's and candy.
    Mr. Azweepay was on with me, He pulled his "Kress" hat over his eyes, put his hood up and went to sleep. I thought I heard him say " wait for it" what ever that means. then he giggled. the other passengers had a look like they just ate a bad piece of fish. if I didn't know better I think Mr. Azweepay was crop dusting the plane the whole way home!
    He told me to tell every one he had a great time
    Just believe

    Highway Carving???

    Really sucks to have SES over. Just super to have the chance to meet and ride with everyone!

    During the 18 hr drive back to the flatlands I found my feet and legs doing tiny little heelside and toeside moves as I guided the car from lane to lane with the cruise control on. At one point I wondered why I wasn't changing lanes, pushed my toes harder and leaned a bit.... oh, right... steering wheel!

    Endless thanks to ALL the organizers and supporters.
    just getting from A to B

    And I thought I was the only one who had this problem?! Next year I hope to finally make it out to SES.

    What a great week

    Thanks Michelle and Fin for once again hosting a great week of carving and thanks Sean, Frank and Bruce for the gear i rode, still like the snap of the Oly Freecarve best. I'm looking out at lake washington thinking about carving it up. Won't be back on the snow til the 26th in SV Idaho. Anne, Cathy and hopefully daughters will be carving with me. Anne says no skiing for her next year, just carving. See you next year, oh if your in Seattle look us up. It was great riding with all of you!

    Just got home - picked up my sweet gimpy dog in Utah and managed to negotiate the deer/moose/elk/antelope/badger highway slalom, and came out sunny side up in the 18 wheeler roller derby!

    So many good memories... learning to ride chop, remembering my powder skills with an awesome silly fun crew, a few super fun all-girl runs, meeting SBS & Milkman at Buttermilk, flying with the new Raven board on perfect groom the last afternoon....

    More please! (Wish I were headed back now instead of unloading the car....)

    post SES blues...sort of

    Drove/slept on the road for 23 hours and then came home to two super cool and wonderful little boys and their mom.I loved SES and already miss riding with great people on great goomed,but...

    ... today at Silver was bluebird and firm;even the familiar ridges of the crappy grooming on the steeps around chair 3 seemed to welcome me home.Add a two hour hardboot lesson with Max (who is lookin good)on the always nice grooming out at chair 4 and it all made for an awesome homecoming ! The Montucky crew might be interested to know that I even rode til last chair!!

    Even after all the demos at SES my Diablo still rules.It's nice to come home still happy to ride what I own.Rode some kickass stuff though,and will review it in the right thread.

    Mostly though,what makes me look forward to next year is the people.Thanks to everyone!
