hellow fellas. todays sunday the 17th and i just got back from the most amazing snowboard trip EVER!
we went to telluride a resort 3 hours away... and guess what,no not 6k above see level,not 8, not 10 - 12! amazing, too amazing!
okay okay so imagine this: 11k above seelevel,snowy weather conditions and not too cold.a freshly waxed board, a view over the whole countryside combined with some fancy music. cruising down 55 kmh through a nice,fresh, 7- inch top layer of gorgeous powder. swirvin through soooo smooth cause its impossible to catch edges. after a few seconds you see a nice path through the woods, you start aiming and changing course for it - then, finally you enter 4 foot deep powder snow with no lanes telling you that this is gonna be heaven. going through you change stance leaning back popping up your nose to not dig in to far. your right thigh might be cramping out but you dont-give-a-shit. you cruise through trees surfing on the snow just like a real wave. so smooth you can feel the fine powder barely touching your face. you keep on surfing and surfing til the high-speed 4 person lift is waiting for you. slowing down getting your shiny season pass out of your pocket to enter the lift. the guard beside the little cabin smiles at you and says: hey bud,you havin fun? - you just put on a big grin and say : oh definitely, have a nice day.
- this,ladies and gentleman, is colorado.
AND I LOVE IT
