Snowboarders Take Advantage of Nice Weather

Posted: Updated:

They're snowboarding in Sochi.

And down the road about 40 minutes.

Courtney Plante takes us to the slopes.

"We got about 2 inches of snow overnight. We've got a beautiful bluebird sunny day today and they are just perfect. It's a great opportunity for people to come out," said Andy Beck, Mountain Operations Manager.

 

Snowboarders young and old take advantage of nice days to freshen up their skills.

They strive to ride as the pros do -- like Parker Lind who looks up to Shaun White.

"They way he snowboards, its just cool to watch him," said Parker Lind.

This might not be Sochi, but Jon Gardiner enjoys boarding each weekend Huff Hills is open.

"It's just really fun and all my buddies do it and hanging out with all my friends," said Jon Gardiner

Gardiner has been riding for 16 years and has been helping out on the slopes for almost as long.

He enjoys taking jumps and rails, but says there's nothing like riding in a bunch of fresh powder.

Huff Hills employees enjoy seeing familiar faces, like Gardiner, and hope for more nice days of riding.

With no school today Huff Hills was packed and cars were lined up down the road.
