“Law of Nature Outro”
The Flamboyant gods
So…. I wasn’t sure if an opening day could ever top a few years ago, I was wrong.
Hands down the best opening day…Possibly my best ski hill shred day ever in North america. Sorry Mt. Baker, Japan has you beat.
John and I rolled down from Vancouver at 6 am. We met up with C3’s Johan Malkoski and caught the 3rd chair up in the morning.
You’re kidding me right ? 3rd Chair !
I don’t really know what else to say about the day… I had moment though. About half way through the day, mid run, I had this feeling come over me… Pure happiness, joy and a feeling of what i describe as love. It’s been a long time since I’ve felt that way, I was pretty taken back… Nov 18, 2011 one of my greatest days of shredding EVER ! Thank you Mt. Baker and a cold wet front that brought a mellow 3 feet of light pow to us in the classically wet and heavy Pacific Northwest.
My kit was pretty much spot on for the day… Yeah I probably should have mounted up the Partyshark Charlie, but that CAPiTA TFk’n Awesome 157 has been calling to me for a while now. I was actually blown away by how great this deck handled in this deep of snow. My lower half was held in by the new Union Atlas team binding, simple, clean, light… same pair I was rocking last year. With my design, Deeluxe Rough Diamond 5‘s keeping my feet toasty. I opted for a thicker pair of Drop mittens. I thought it was going to be a lot more wet than it was, I hate wet cold hands, no wet + no cold = me happy ! My head held the classic tj schneider kit.. My model Goggle from drop kept me fog-less and seeing the lines though that mess of snow, And my Bern Macon model helmet kept me feeling safe… Helmets are a really good idea in early season conditions. There are a lot of rocks just under that surface, I’ve lost one friend from hitting his head on a rock just under the snow, I’d love to not lose anymore… protect yourself foo!
As I mentioned in the video, our store also has a good stack of new “Realms Solid Gold Tees” in stock. We also have a ton of stickers and a few, very limited hats, Check em out.
Thanks everyone, looking forward t ep 3
