Yesterday I learned one of the better things to do here in MT....Extreme Snow Boarding...... It was great we hiked our asses off all the way up this mountain. It was a good mile staight up! It just about killed me. The whole way up we were pretty much on our knees and using the board to pull us up. There was atleast a six foot base most of the way up. When we got to the top we made a jump and I went fliying on my back!! Then we just boarded back down at the end of the day.........What cracked me up is these guys had a long debate about snowboarding........according to them if you go to a resort and ride a lift then you are not a real snowboarder. A real boarder will get up before light and start hiking a mile and a half to the top of some random clear cut and build a jump . They said you should earn your rides!!!.....I just laughed and enjoyed the day, all I could think about was the comparrisson between real hunters and the pussys that would take a lift to the top!!!
