End of Session Report:  #347

End of Session REPORT:  # 346
Location: White Bear Lake, Mahtomedi
Date:  Saturday Jan 25, 2014

This glorious season continues to provide.  Met Randy and Adam out from Mahtomedi, just past 10am.  The sun was bright, the sky bluer than blue and snow was flowing like water across the surface.  We were lit on our 10’s and 12ms.  Big floaty jumps, endless carving down wind…unreal.  Reds, Owen, Nicole, Kyle and other showed up to play.

Owen was quite the rockstar ripping around on his 4.5m RPM.  Mega speed runs, smiles from ear to ear.

Justin, his first time out, was looking dialed on his snowboard.  He and Nicole tag teamed on her kite.  Great to see you Nicole and meet you Justin.

Bill Snellman, came shooting down from Bellaire to ride with us for a bit.  Good to see ya, Bill.

Norman stopped out, added his usual spice to the midsession BS’n, and fueled us with some amazing fudge.  We’ve missed you Norman.  Hopefully you can join us again soon.

What a visual feast! Bright sun, bright bright wind swept snow,  feather clouds reaching across the sky, kites doting the sky into the horizon.

This season just keeps getting better.  Thank you thank you thank you.
