So, not too bad considering I'm 51 years old, got arthritis, can't ski, and stepped on a snowboard for the first time last Jan. 2011!!

So there!!! "neener neener"

I know the feeling man. Im 40, have arthritis in all major joints and my lower back has pretty much disintegrated to mush from years of jumping on skis and bmx racing when I was young. my local hill is very small so when they open the longer runs I was able to get back into the swing ofthings this year, and found myself hitting hillside edge jumps and feeling happy about this. Same rush I had as a kid when I was hitting jumps for the first time on skis
