First Chair - Never Summer Snowboards Www.wrightlife.com

By: Kelly Larsen

It's the first chair lift ride on an early Sunday morning. It's a cold, crisp, amazing day as I get off the lift and skate over to the edge of the double black diamond run. A foot of fresh, untouched powder awaits me as I scan the run and plot my descent. Taking a deep breath, I strap into the bindings on my Never Summer Legacy snowboard. One kick forward and I drop into the run, floating and gliding with every turn. The champagne powder floats and swirls around my body, stinging my cheeks and rushing past my goggles. I close my eyes for a split second and drink in the moment, the rush, and the exhilaration.

My board becomes an extension of my body and carves effortlessly through the fresh snow.

My Never Summer Legacy board is excellent for all around riding and never disappoints on the best powder days or on the hard pack days. It screams on the groomers and turns on a dime in the bumps. Once in a while, I drop into the pipe and try out a few jumps. The board has a good range of flexibility and stiffness to work well in all riding situations on the mountain. Depending on the conditions, any type of riding is heaven on this board! It is truly the best all mountain board I have ever owned. With the right Never Summer board, you too can experience the possibilities!

I was introduced to my first Never Summer snowboard by the awesome staff at the Wright Life in Fort Collins, Colorado. The Wright Life has some of the most experienced staff in the industry. What's cool about this shop is everyone who works there rides. Their staff has all levels of abilities and riding styles enabling them to outfit you with the best equipment choices for your riding ability. Never Summer boards are some of the staff's favorites and they should know; they test out all the boards they carry. Check them out at www.wrightlife.com.
