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.
