I went with a college buddy that fortunately stayed with me and taught me the basics...last season was my first full season and I can link turns and get down the mountain on not too steep blues. I want to clean this up this season and also work on riding switch as I think that will be important if I ever want to do 180s. It just takes run after run after run. Build some confidence and f*** other people who laugh, cause they were all there too. Just have some fun!
