  • Blunts @ Welch Village

    Maria and I had the pleasure of meeting up with sempai and Mrs Sempai last weekend at Welch Village near Minneapolis. Both sempai and I were on Blunts which was my first ride of the season and the first time on the Blunts.

      Mrs. Sempai had all new clothes, helmet and goggles. The only thing new on me was the helmet. I've had that jacket for three seasons and the pants for two. Oh, wait a minute. I forgot that I was wearing a new soft-shell jacket underneath.

      It was funny because Maria was the shortest person out of the four of us, but she was on the longest boards. She does extremely well on the KTPs.

        The sempai's were the most stylish on the hill. Great color combinations. They know the color wheel well.

        Yeh it was funny seeing her ride the longest skiboards in the group.

        Maria tried the KTPs at her request on our last ride last season and liked them in uneven terrain. Over the summer I gave them a progressive base edge tune. Seems to have tamed them for her.

            This was actually the most stylish person on the hill, and he just so happened to be riding blades. He was wearing blindingly bright neon lime green clothing. Notice how he stands out in the distance at the end of the clip. At one point we were at the top of a run and spotted him about three runs over at the bottom near the chalet.

            That's my next outfit.

                    sempai - since you are about to embark on an epic ski trip where you will likely spend time skiing solo you might want to get one of those outfits now. If you become lost, they could spot you from the international space station in that.

                              We went down Chicken. It was the steep run that they were racing on earlier in the day. Use this video as reference. It's the first run she goes down.
