Stay up the night before waxing and stuffing my duffle with all my gear. I check and double check to make sure I have everything because I can never sleep thanks to anticipation. I forgot my ski boots one time and had to drive back 30 minutes in. Super gay.
Wake up at 6. Stop at McDonalds for breakfast. Hit the highway at 6:30, arrive at 8:30 at the mountain in time for a decent spot in the lift line!
Shred the mountain to begin with typically because everything is hard as shit in the morning. Park is too sketchy and icy early.
Around 12 or 1 we take a break for a bite to eat. Typically cheese and bread because it's cheap and sticks to you followed by a Kerns Nectar for blood sugar and because they are bomb :)
Hit the lift line and lap the park for a few hours when the snow is nice and soft.
Around 3 we'll probably hit a few more runs for some cool down laps just for fun.
We make it a goal never to have "just one more run" only because shit ALWAYS goes wrong on your last run.
Leave mountain. Catch Taco Bell on the way out. Go home.
well since my home mountain is not a mountain, it's a garbage hill in the middle of the city, i can go whenever i want to. usually there all day on weekends and 3/5 weeknights hitting nothin but park because theres nothing else to do but drink 5$ rockstars and eat chunky fries and gravy.
since my season doesnt start for 2 weeks and we're on our 3rd snow day in a row, i've just been hitting urbans and backyard rails for a few hours every day.
Waiting on my ACL recovery so I havent been up yet this season, but this is how it usually goes.
Take my goggles, gloves and shit out of my bag the night before so they dry. Wake up around 630 the next morning and throw on some athletic shorts and my ski socks and a tee shirt usually. Start the car and throw my shit back in my bag. Sometimes when I get downstairs my friends will already be waiting for me, but usually I have to wait a couple minutes for the rest of the carload to show up at my house. We all cruise up to Loon and head into the lodge for a minute to throw on our gear and take a bathroom break. Then we usually kill a few groomers before popping into the park for a good sesh, then finish it off with a few summit laps leading into the park.
Powder Day- Wake up at 6:30 smoke a grit drive 20 minutes to mountain
Regular Day- wake up at 11:30 smoke a grit drive 20 minutes to mountain
Shower the night before, leave my skis boots bag and poles by the door, wake up around 6 30 or 7 throw on my jacket and pants leave the house by 7 or 7 30. One hour in stop at McDonalds to get some breakfast. Drive up the rest of the way usually arrive by 8 or 830. On the mountain by 9.
Ski till about noon, de boot and go drive to a gas station to buy lunch 2 mins from the mountain. Save 8 dollars on food by buying it cheap. Get back on the mountain before 1 then ski till 3 then head off to a friends. IF we aren't tired we will head over to our local hill and get a few late park laps in. Shower again and go find some women
