What was your first day on a board like?
My first day on a snowboard was awful. I spent the entire day trying to get up the Platter Pole (like a t-bar) at Eaglecrest. Couldn't even make it to the top of the bunny hill. Swore I'd never snowboard again. The next day hopped on the Hooter chairlift and never looked back.
Perfect AK Shred Day?
A Thursday at Eaglecrest, 28 degrees with 18" of new. And the ridge opens at noon.
