Board Meeting Weekend

This weekend was as they say on the "Visit California" commercials a board meeting all weekend.

Was on Friday at Big Bear Mountain.
This meeting was the longest of the two. 8 hours with a 30 min lunch, but worth every min. The snow was great, the sun was out and the crowds were no where to be seen. I think the longest chair lift wait I had was 2 mins. I have not been making it to the snow much in the last few years. This was my third trip in two years, with this being the third and first time this season. But just like riding a bike you really don't forget.
After the warm up run to get the muscles awake it was on and popping. I was hitting boxes and jumps all over the place. Went to visit the pipe and as always it was iced over so needless to say didn't spend must time in it. The day was going great no spills then as luck would have it, when your feeling good BAM! you get to cocky and you try a nose press on a down hill box. And slip out, fall off the box and slide about 90 feet on your back, lucky for me it wasn't to bad of a fall.
Here is KT and his wife calls him ready to drop into a about knee deep powder bowl in the trees.
Me at the bottom of the bowl. if you look behind me you can make out the tree run we just did.
You cant have a board meeting without members of the board. KT at the summit with the back bowl in the background.
The day was great maybe I will get one more trip in before the season ends.

The Next days' meetings went just as smooth. This meeting was for testing and review of my new kicks through true field testing.
This meeting took place in Fullerton at what use to be known as the Fullerton Skate Park. Due to the city getting complaints of gangs, drugs and graffiti they chose to put up a fence and close the park.
Did they really think by putting up a fence and a municipal code they could solve this problem. We skated for about 2 hours before the sun went down. Here are some picks of what went down.
