Soooo helpful. He explained a few concepts that I guess everyone assumes are a given to know- like you are always on an edge and if you go flat board, you lose control. O.o
I'm guessing you were on that peak right off the sweet express lift? They really need to warn that even though that lift accesses green terrain that it should not be used by absolute beginners. That's a fairly steep blue just to get down from there IMO.

Leo, those were some fancy kicks in that other thread. Usually I can overcome my lack of skill with size and brute strength, but those flying kicks might give me trouble! Lol
