Day 68 - Eager to try out my new Salomon Malamute snowboard boots (9/10 stiffness), I was also treated with 5-10 cm of fresh. Fun morning riding with Patrick:

2 x Upper and Lower Fork (almost first tracks)
2 x Jasey Jay + Cascade (mostly untracked)
2. x Upper Fork + Cascade (mostly untracked)
2 x WindJammer
1 x Crazy Raven
2 x Lower Coyote 7
1.x Olympic

Stiff boots were incredibily responsive ... only requiring subtle movements for aggressive edging ... even oversteered a couple of heel side turns. Now I can replicate LeopardSkin's rapid short turns ... and get further around on my carving 360 attempts.

It's going to be super fun figuring out these new boots. Now I believe buying quality boots is more important than a quality snowboard.
