Ended up taking me less than half the day to be linking turns down the steep grooms. Good patient fun attitude is the key...GOOD LUCK and ENJOY, ITS SUPPOSE TO BE FUN
I weigh 215, down from 315!! I'm 52 years old, been a smoker for 41 years! I can't run, jumping is too high impact for my bad knees and ankles! I Never skied, started snowboarding at 50 with arthritis, pernicious anemia, ADD, a bad back & a shitty attitude!! And at least three other members of this forum can attest to the fact that I CAN ride! and I'll go from first chair @ 9 am. to last @ 9:30/10 pm without spending any time in the bar!!! WTF do you know???

...and snowboarding is the most fun I've had with my clothes on!!! ( It's a close second to anything I've done nekkid!!)
