I agree. In the end I think I had a better day then I would have if I'd done the castlerock comp.
First off castlerock trail wasn't exactly "fun" to ski, and instead I got to enjoy an awesome spring park day. Made for a better time, the comp was going to be a lot of hury up and wait. Essentially watch a bunch of kids timidly pick there way down castlerock because their coaches made 'em.
Maybe I am still bitter too. I knew I was going to have a pretty good chance to take home some money.
