VIDEO: Z Griff and the Weston Snowboards crew head back to Mayflower Gulch just south of Copper Mountain for Day 2 of backcountry training with Colorado Snowboard Guides. The group learns more about snowpack analysis and terrain selection, then gets to put it all into practice with the reward: fresh laps through Mayflower. How sweet education is.
