You know, when I was in my late 20's I was also considered an "old snowboarder" and that was the time of Duct-Tape and Sorels being a boarders best friend....... Yea, except for the friends that I have been boarding with for the 10-15 years I don't really know many boarders my age that actually can board (if you know what I mean).

Was funny a few years ago before I was over 30, I was still in the oldest age group in non-open races.

He is one of the smoothest and most technically correct boarders on the mountain, often skis with the teens, and is admired by everyone he meets. Honestly one of the greatest people on the planet. If you ever come to Boulder, let me know and I'll hook you up with Pat.
