Default Short season

Hello all,
I am 46 yrs old and currently live in FAR Northern CA. I learned to ski in 1985 and loved it but was unable to go after that partly due to moving to Oklahoma where there are no mountains. Last year I moved back to CA and took my daughter to the local ski park to take snowboarding lessons. They informed me it was a two for one deal and that I could take lessons for free, yeah $0 so I went for it and boy am I glad. I went every single Sunday last season but our local park season is only from about mid Jan to Just before Easter. Most other parks are an over night trip or more away so ugh. Anyway, I love snowboarding and have been looking forward to going again every day since they closed the parks.

I enjoy taking it easy, but towards the end of the season I was wanting to learn more stuff. Unfortunately I am the most advanced rider I go with as everyone else I know actually took it up after I did.

Gear:
2013 Burton Honcho 158
Ruler Restricted size 11 boots
Burton Freestyle bindings

I am 6'1", 190'
