Tuesday through Wednesday is my work week this season! So back to the grind I went riding up with Matt from instruction/retail. He also gave me a ride on the first day of the season. The hippy park continued to be the raddest zone on the hill. Located just outside the ski area, the hippy park is a pump track/jump maze! A bunch of employees have put in over 100 man hours building this icy mine field. I decided to rest my knee and just shoot a few photos. Caught a ride down with Sadie Rabener Justice, a young skier that I have seen on the hill since she was a ski racer. Alex, Dan Devoe's doppleganger, also hitched a ride. It turns out he has ridden every day his season as well!
Kyle Scott moved some gear around to give me a ride down. I met Kyle last year but we got reacquainted a couple of weeks ago. Eric Nord likes to call him Kylix because his brother's name is Kalix. Anytime you can give someone a confusing nick name you are crushing it Shocka Nord! Kyle had magic cards in the back seat and we nerded out chatting about the game. Kyle's passenger turned the radio up to 11 and I got the hint!
