I was able to not have to traverse across the mountain as much - does it look like I am somewhat doing what they show? I know I still need to bend my knees more, but I do have knee problems and am wearing knee braces so this is about as "bendy" as I can get. Am I making some progress from last year??? lol

Here is a video from those black diamond and blue runs today.

I think you are doing great! I saw your vids from last year and remember them well. You have a flow going with your riding that keeps you on balance at all times, if you keep this up you will be doing less side sliping and taking on more speed, BUT DONT LISTEN to these guys telling you to bomb blues. Chances are, they are 1/3 your age and dont realize how great you are truly doing.
