  5. Just got one for Christmas! 2 brushes, horsehair and nylon board width size. Awesome after waxing and refreshes a base for an extra day or two in between. Probably not using it properly but then again, I use the Doug Coombs/rip..."q&p" tuning method

    Yo Lci!!

    Played binding Tetris as stated but jumped straight on the Alloy DO. Headed up Chet’s with Katie, Logan, Julia and Wayne. Survival mode! Firm, flat light, gaper crew in full effect. Rental line at 8am was out the door into the “smoking area” 3 survival runs down Richards before the clouds rolled in. We rolled the dice and hopped a short bus to the valley. I freaking love the valley. If there was a pass just for chair three I’d buy it. Anyway, needless to say it was way better. No crowds, a few racer types, and the average skier crew that goes right at the top of 3. Saw Eric/Mr. E and Met Walker/Bomber By Gumbo. Great guys. Good times, good conversation and some sweet turns to be had by all. Thanks again Mark for the advice last week at A-bay. Dropping the back knee in and closing up the wide stance had me fitting into some nice deep heel sides. Saw some interesting new things on the horizon for hardboot bindings too! Did I mention I love snowboarding? New friends, family time, I’m a lucky man. One more mid week day going down next week with Wayne. We are going to pick the nicest day. Then the kids are all gone and Katie and I will be hitting up MJ/WP from there until Aspen Feb 6-9. Be well.

    Upped the angles on my virus for the morning laps on Richards and Ptarmigan. Alloy DO for the softer side of me. Hope to see you up there. Wife and Kids in tow. Stoked!

    Yo Lci!!

    Missed this but did this! Great to see/meet today. Traded laps on 3 mid day until we hooked up for a chair ride and a run down the frontside. Nice to hook up with another carver and a new smiling face. The oxess has been good to me. 12m fixed radius is a lot of fun. Tentative with a “cracked” high back all day but all was right in our world. Really enjoying our kids and the mountain. Hope you are all well. Back up Friday... may try out my coiler? Heal up Mario

    Yo Lci!!

    Sunday not so funday. It was great to see Mario, Arne and James. James and I had family in tow and spent the day riding with them. Wayne Julia and I started running some warm ups on 1 and then moved over to Ptarmigan. It was brutally obvious that Mario and Arne were laying trenches. We eventually rode the short bus for some laps on 3. I ditched the hard boots and the virus avalanche for my new to me oxess bx and we all had a blast before leaving at about 12:30. It was eerily quiet in the Rathskeller for our apres toast only to find out that LCI’s finest, Big Mario took a spill that will probably keep him off the hill for the next several weeks. Fast healing my friend. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help you out until you are feeling better. James and family will be up tomorrow/24th. My family is waiting for Christmas Day to get back up on the hill.
