Powdery Heaven

For a while, I felt cheated.  After having worked at Tamarack doing electrical work for around 9 months, it seemed that I should have had an opportunity to snowboard the hill.  But until this last weekend, I hadn’t.   Finally, Dan and I had the pleasure of riding the snow at Tamarack.  Now I find out that Tamarack has closed indefinitely due to financial issues.  I may have been disappointed by this news before, but now that I’ve experienced the ecstasy of those powdery white fields, I’m heartbroken.

Anyway, we had an awesome time.  As always, I rented my board from the Water Ski Pro Shop in Garden City.  They have the best boards and you get the whole setup for just $15.  They also offered a day ticket for Tamarack at $49 instead of the $62 I’d have to pay at the hill.  The only minor complaint I had was that I spent much of the day envious of Dan’s bindings.  He’s got some great ones that are step in and the back locks in place.  Fast but still secure.  I spent way too much time bent over at the top of the lift re-strapping my feet to the board.
