Yesterday @ Pine Knob was pretty good! Snow conditions were WAY better than I expected after all that warm 'n' rainy all week. I'm gonna give Mt. Holly a try today. Never been there before so we'll see how that goes. If it sucks, or I just don't like the hill, I guess I can always split for PK.

Oh yeah, As for my progress on riding switch. Did 3 or 4 runs down the 1/4 mile blue run, (...or "quicksilver or whatever it's called) @ PK yesterday where I rode the entire run top to bottom "Switch"! Didn't fall once!! I was pretty stoked about that!

It still doesn't feel quite "Natural". The toeside turns and edge traverses still feel a little forced & awkward, but a LOT less so than when I "Biffing" EVERY time I tried one.

Dave, If your still planning on hitting Holly today, let me know. I'll keep an eye out for you in your "Lumberjack" jacket 'n' hoodie!

Hope 2 C-ya there!
