"Riding with high end riders can be extremely fun wether you are digging ruts on a steep groomer or sessioning the park. Anytime I get to ride with my fellow instructors I have a great time. A very memorable experience was the ride off on my first level 4 exam. Very talented riders, snowboarding at a very high level; the energy in the group was electric and made for an amazing experience."
