This past Saturday (5/7/11) Big Boulder PARK opened for last day. Boulder does this every year on the first Saturday of May. For the second time the we had a full run with a lift running for May Day. The last time the lift was on was 2 years ago.
I headed up to Boulder on Friday to help put with the build. As soon as I got there I had a Bud handed to me, it was great! The build was pretty fun and there were some beers drank while we worked, maybe explains why the triple rail line wasn’t as straight as we wanted? But it was May Day, was the excuse we used. The setup turned out really well and everyone seemed like they enjoyed it.
I didn’t get much sleep on Friday night and was up at 7:30AM to head over to Boulder to get everything ready for opening at 10AM. The day started out with temps in the lower 60s and not a cloud in the sky. Then the clouds started to roll in around noon. From there we had rain, sleet, and there was snow spotted at the top. The craziest May Day to date? I think so. Got to love the Pocono weather.
Skullcandy was there pumping out the tunes and giving away a ton of free stuff. When you got a lift ticket they gave a goodie bag of random stuff, I hear some kids got a bagel in there bag. Also Vita CoCo Coconut Water was giving got some of there drinks.
Overall it was a lot of fun and good to see everyone.
Now I will be off to Government Camp, OR for the summer on June 6th to work at High Cascade Snowboard Camp.
