snowboarding season 08/09

Due to the later date of easter this year we had a rather long season this year. I started snowboarding on 2008-12-06 and stopped today 2009-04-19.

Following up on previous entries here is the balance sheet:

number of (partial) days25172937
total meters of altitude12463474096219936226774
# of runs309189503551

In the second half of the season we actually had a lot of snow, up two 130 cm down at 800m above sealevel. Complete snow cover lasted from December until mid of April.

Riding was good, I did not have any major injury, my skills did not increase though. The addition of a snowboard, a SG Speed 173 to my quiver worked out well. Loads of fun and less danger in slushy conditions (nose-in) compared to the shorter slalom board.

Now the waiting starts. ;-)
