Default EUREKA! I didn't kill myself on the Greens

So after several sessions of learning this sport and sticking to the learner (read bunny) hills, I was forced by my wife to goon greens only.

I did a few faceplants but didn't hurt myself in the least - I hurt myself more on those damn bunny hills.. I was linking turns and for the most part going pretty fast - that Evil Twin can really move even though it is an extruded base.

There was some brakng down the steep parts but my main holdup was some leg fatigue. I'll need to work on that.

Bottom line is that bunny hills are good for learning to stop and a bit of control - but you need to venture out and try those greens. I can see me on the blues and some blacks next season.

Cheers!
