Al Brede and I rode in the New Year for 2011. We stayed with Taylor and Dylan in Parkdale and rode Meadows the day before, the day of and the day after New Years. The mountain had received lot of snow a few day prior but was quite firm by the time we got there. We ended up having great light and riding some fun park setups and a fresh cut pipe. Regardless of how the New Years celebration goes on the night of, snowboarding makes any News Years better.
