Good Morning Mt Hood

It's great to be back with the gang at work doing what they do best: snowboarding. It's our third morning of the session and the forecast is pretty gray and damp but that didn't stop us yesterday from having a great day.
 SMS riders Karen Kobayashi, Marian Lobell, Josh Cohen, Mason Geils, Scott Sweitzer, Xander Raith, Owen Barth want to welcome New Team riders Noelle Edwards, Charlie Burt, Mike Boylan and Julia Marino. We are also joined by Charlie's Brother Harry Burt, Xander'd Bro Benji and SMS freerider Gideon Le Gros. We enjoyed a nice and sunny day one lapping the top to bottom options to get used to riding and yesterday put in a more serious morning of hiking the Public Pipe and saw some great push in the progression as the snow was soft and forgiving to invite flips and spins all around. In the afternoon we did our public park laps as the top chair was having issues and we did not need to risk spending extra time on it!

Day one dryland was some good core and pushup practice followed by a two plus mile run on the Salmon river trail nearby. The cold leg soak helped to disperse the lactates and Charlie earned a "blizzard Shake from Ross for being first to swim across the icy river. More in depth updates will follow but Im off for the Hill. Enjoy yr day.
