Snowboarding encompasses so much more than a simple word could possibly every describe. The feeling of floating on fresh powder in the backcountry is almost indescribable. Since the end of High School, I have traveled to the Rocky Mountains every year at least once to challenge myself on the slopes. I have also combined work with pleasure as some of clients towards the end of my tenure as an auditor conveniently conducted business near mountains.
Here’s a quick summary of some of my ski history:
|Mountain/Ski Area||State||Vertical ft.||Acers|
I’ve ridden two Burton Customs in the past (2003 147 and 2005 158), but currently rock a Lib Tech T-Rice 157 Blunted with Burton Cartel OLS Binding (Camo) and Burton Ion Boots (White). I also protect my eyes with Oakley A-Frames (Shaun White), head with a Giro helmet (White Camo), and body with a combination of gear from many manufacturers.
Oh and here’s a throwback shot in Vail’s backcountry just in case you didn’t believe me haha:
