Day 51 - Fun morning snowboarding with LeopardSkin ... and especially with Dmitri in the bumps. Fun afternoon of trash talk at Brewski with LeopardSkin, Dmitri, Patrick and King.

Day 52 - Another great day of spring conditions and soft bumps with Dmitri and LeopardSkin. My favorites were Jasey Jay, Rainbow, Hutch, Coyote 7 and the super secret Olymplc run. Great to end the week at Brewski with Brian, Patrick, LeopardSkin and Dmitri.

Saturday and Sunday had nice 10° bluebird spring conditions. Surprisingly uncrowded both days. Lift lines were at the most a couple of minutes. When I left at mid-afternoon, parking lot 3a was barely touched, leaving 3b empty.

Another bluebird spring day.

Tuesday's ditch review is "1." There was 1 lifted Jeep in the ditch. On fire!

Day 55 - Awesome day snowboarding in the bumps with Francis. We started a little early at 9:30 but by 10:30 the bumps softened for some glorious fun - Jasey Jay, Ashleigh McIver, Hutch, Horizon Bypass and the super secret Olympic run.

Nice to see Chuck on my way out.

Day 57 - Fun day demo-ing snowboards (4 runs each) on Humpty Dumpty (hero), Cat Track park (baby jumps), Hutch (bumps) and Collins (carve 360) ...

2025 K2 Almanac (surf) - 153 cm great for carving and laying down trenches and good on bumps

2024 K2 Alchemist (all-mountain freeride) - 160 cm stiff and heavy but stable with wide carves. Powers through crud but too big for the bumps.

2024 K2 Niseko Pleasure (powder freeride) - 151 cm soft good for carving but washes out in the crud. Best for the bumps with the least swing weight. Sickest looking graphics / design.

Finished off with my 153 cm KNWN (all-mountain freeride) riding out the super secret Olympic run ... appreciating how well-rounded this board is for typical Cypress conditions ... somewhere between the K2 Almanac (soft surf) and the K2 Alchemist (stiff freeride)
