If I can just conquer the leaning and big S-turns and try to get higher on my edge I will consider my snowboarding a success as that seems low impact yet enough to have fun. At this age and with my sore knee - after 4 hours I have to go back to the condo and ice it and it really is painful, the next day I can usually only handle 2 hours and I'm done - carving just isn't going to be on my "bucket list" - nor is "bombing" down a hill! lol

My goal when I started was to just get down any blue run without freaking out and it being "fun" and to be relaxed and not tense.

We have three more weekends before the lease is up on the condo and then I will have to continue this drama next year! :-)

I just want to make the most out of these next few years before knee replacement turns into my reality.

Thanks Snowolf!

vicki, get a new knee in 3 weeks and then get it in shape for next winter...one of my ski buds had both knees done 2 years ago and he's doing great.
