Broken River Retro Day
After a weekend off snow, I was keen to get back up to the mountains. Sadly due to the rain, which had sabotaged the good start to the season, snow conditions weren't looking flash. However there were plenty of events going on to keep things exciting. I was up at Castle Hill on Friday night and got the call from Ryan that retro day at Broken River was going to be the go for Saturday. Ryan designated me the job of costumes and said he would be picking me up in the morning. I started hunting through the Brook family ski gear archives in the roof and put together two half assed retro outfits.
How wrong I was! These outfits, on the scale of everyone else at Broken River on Saturday, were anything but half assed. Ryan made a full commitment to the theme and rode one of the 1st ever Burton custom boards complete with edges blunter than a butter knife.
The next weekend was not going to offer anything sweet on the snow front but the company was another story. Up at Broken River I had a hoot of a day with a full rat pack and the odd pocket of windblown snow. Player of the day goes to Christine Spescha of Switzerland for a ninja display as a nutcracker beginner!
