I do know that it's a trickier one to get on with the stupid plastic mat and it's super slow anyway. Maybe with your new board it will be better to exit? Ego trip area is best avoided anyway.

The Wall stays icy until later in the day. If you're wrapping up by noon that might be why your husband is having a problem with it. It gets softer later in the day, sometimes. At least it's short, you don't have very fall to fall I'm actually impressed he fell twice on The Wall. That's one of those if you fall you're going right to the bottom with everyone on the lift watching!
Yes, he went back after lunch - around 1:00 and he just wasn't use to how steep it is and since then he has increased his forward lean but hasn't been back. Yes, when he fell he said he slid about halfway down and then finally figured out how to dig his board in and he pushed and stood right up only to fall on the next turn. And to think he went back and tried that 3 more times! lol

We've ordered him a new board like my Rossi Diva Magtek and think it may work better on the Wall for next year - we shall see! lol

I like Ego Trip - the bottom on it is a diamond, but I just HATE that chairlift exit. The exits I hate don't really have a flat area for you to rest your board on and stand up - they all just drop off the minute the chair lift is there and I need time to adjust before zipping down the drop off. Skis - I had no problem, but on the snowboard I just have problems with those chairlifts that launch you down the exit right away. I stress the whole ride up on the chairlift about falling - and those lifts are slow! lol So lot's of built up stress only to go 3 minutes down the mountain to be stressed all over again with the chairlift!

I like the blue runs on the left of the mountain - but again, hate those chairlift exits!!!

But with this newer board it may be different - I will try again next year and see how it goes.
