Many years ago I lived in the Colorado ski town of Breckenridge. Over the years 1993 - 1996 I got in a little fewer than 300 days of snowboarding in one form or another. It was as awesome as one would think.
A million years later and living in San Francisco away from the immediate access to powder and fresh groomers, I don't really ride anymore. Nor do I watch endless snowboarding videos trying to re-live epic days on epic hills.
However, I ran across this video a while back and, well, it literally brought a tear to my eye.
The first 1/2 is pretty standard and I almost stopped watching. But at the 3:58 mark, one of my favorite songs from Explosions in the Sky cues up and... I don't know. It's glorious.
(I've tried to embed so that the video starts at 3:58 but can't get it to work.)
