Well, I got to hit the mountain today(Gore Mountain, NY) and I gotta say I am psyched about how much I end up liking for being a first timer. I took the lesson as every one suggested and I gotta say it was the best thing I could have done. The instructor was excellent and on point.

after doing toe edge and hill edge I got to link the both of them even before getting of the bunny hill. One thing I gotta say is that I didn't think that getting up on the board initially was going to be so challenging, uufff! got it done though.

Finally, I have to say that I couldn't count with my own fingers how many times I felt(I'm in sooo much pain right now, can't deal with my life). I got to go on one of the green trails and it was good for the most part until I've found out that I couldn't turn or stop on my toe side causing most of the falling and some of them were really bad to the point I've thought I've broke some bones but got up dust the snow off and kept on going lol. I still can't figure out what to do as far as dealing with being on the toe side coming down the hill, any suggestions will be appreciated. Lastly, I want to know how do I know if my board is catching on the edge?

Thx
