1. 2025 Yes Eiki Pro 151 jib board. Butters & presses on fire.

2. 2025 Whitespace Montano 148 freestyle/ all-mountain. Versatile.

3. 2025 Whitespace Shaun White Pro 150 freestyle/ all-mountain. Better carver than 2, and Nina Dobrev is your girlfriend.

There were 2 4x4 trucks in the ditch stuck axle deep in the snow :lol:

Sunday gear demo.

1. 2025 Nidecker Supermatic bindings. Convenient & solid.

2. 2025 Ride Zero 151 jib board. Aggressive jibber.

3. 2025 Battaleon Disaster 151 jib board. Aggressive jibber.

4. 2025 Rome Artifact 150 jib board. Aggressive jibber.

5. 2025 Yes Standard Uninc Dustin Craven 156 all-mountain board. Aggressive all-mountain.

I can't believe there were two separate incidents of 4x4 trucks getting high centered in the snow.

Day 59 - Sticky wet snow. Another miserable day with LeopardSkin. On the bright side - the bumps were nice and soft perfect for a great morning work out.

Day 60 - Sweet morning at Cypress. No bumps. No carve 360s ... just tons of surfy turns over 5 to 10 cm of untracked fresh. I basically had Upper and Lower Fork all to myself for the first 1/2 hr. Moved to Sky chair to enjoy a couple of untracked runs with Doug. Moved back to Jasey Jay skiers right ... then finished off defiling the virgin Olympic run all to myself.

Day 61 - Doug - you missed 10+ cm POW off piste. Lower Cat Track, Hutch, Sky Chair in the trees, Horizon Bypass and the super secret Olympic run were even better (deeper and dryer) than yesterday. Great way to end the week.
