It could be anything, a great view, a snow suit that fit just right, an awesome ride, an awesome rider or skier in front of you, someone busting it at the terrain park, no limits. For me, I can still see it plain as day from a month or more ago:

I was skiing Lazy River at Sunday River, passed a couple of slowpokes and kept up with this kid in front of me. He goes across the trail, hits a jump and turns around and lands backward. I expected him to turn back around right away. Not this guy! He hits it and is flying down the hill. Now I can straight line Lazy River wide open at a pretty good clip, and I could barely keep up with him. This trail goes over hill and dale and around the cow's barn, it's a real roller coaster ride, great fun! I am about 50-100 feet behind this kid just ripping it up backwards, front row seat!!!! When we got to Risky Business, he took a break on a knoll, and I waved at him as I went by, thanking him for the show!

College Week at Hunter - So much going on in just the days I was there. Beer cans everywhere, 7 snowboarders on the same 6 pack chair, guys getting on the lift with beers in their hands, jumping off and over everything, most fell or it would not have been that unusual.

I "heard" one guy passed out drunk on the mountain. They brought him down on a sled and put him to bed.

I saw some deer grazing on a trail at Whiteface a few weeks ago. Nothing earth-shattering, but I'd never seen that before.

Speaking of skiing switch,for a few years a young guy use to pretty much straightline Zoomer at Cannon and turn switch at about 50 mph and finish it that way.Almost as fast as us facing forward.Very impressive watching from the chair.

For a real story this gaper came out for a pow day this year with snowblades. Sitting in the gondi line the guy got a ton of heat for the hour plus delayed opening for avi control.

At the top people are still raggin on the guy pretty hard. The whole time hes silent, then absolutely killed it on the way down to Thunder. Crushed study plots, ripped Amplitheater, and caught first chair up Thunder when it opened.

It was amazing as it pretty much made every aggro JHole skier dude completely speechless.
