The Road to Baker, Day 2: If you’re not first, you’re last — LBS day 1

The time has come yet again for another round of LBS glory. We’re tagging along with Tucker Andrews, a born and bred, live-to-ride snowboarder and all around top-notch guy, as he hits the road in pursuit of banked turns and good times.

Day one at the LBS! There are murmurs in the crowds about the dreaded turn 5, mixed feelings, excitement, anticipation. One thing that is a guarantee is that the stoke is high! People are feelin’ it.

This year there’s a curveball in the mix. There’s a new start location, and it’s rad. Switching it up after all these years. The course is new, fun and flowy up top and then you go through a snow tunnel and it changes tempo. Ice walls and carnage! Other than the course there’s soft conditions up on the hiking areas and the views are absolutely awesome as always.

Telluride bad ass Harry Kearney took the cake in pro men! That dude is fast as shit.

Shred on.

More action to come tomorrow…
