Yes, this I am learning. Actually, I've made some drastic improvements overall with my new board, which doesn't chatter and shudder as I go faster like my old one did. (I tried to explain this to my wife as the difference between going 80 down the highway in a Cadillac versus a rusted out Pinto). This in turn has improved my confidence and allowed me to steadily improve each time I go.

However, she still fucking zips by me on her skis like she's not even trying and it just pisses me off. Tomorrow hopefully I can make some strides as I'm assuming I'll have nice groomers and low traffic to deal with.
