Today started cloudy and cool.

The day evolved into cloudy and warm.

We showed up at the hill a bit before 1pm with no real plan.

We started out ripping top-to-bottom gondola laps.

The speed was intoxicating…

After about four of those, Owen Leeper suggested we rip a mini park lap or three.

Trevor and I obliged, but I wasn’t that excited about it.

Right off the bat, Owen threw a backflip to 360 to frontflip.

It was on.

I am easily swayed by peer pressure.

Honestly, I wouldn’t be where I am today without it.

I dove right in as well with a backflip, 360, 360!

I was elated.

I’ve been skiing with Owen since 2017, and I’m a better skier for it.

He always pushes and challenges me.

We did a few more park laps full of backflips, 360s, and frontflips before we decided to call it around 3:30 pm.

Great day.

Thanks, Mammoth.
