A refresher can't hurt!

There's just no way that I'm missing out this year. I missed last year because the group of guys I ride with never could agree on a date. I don't give a damn this year! I'm going even if it's by myself!

I need to find a new group to ride with anyway. I love my boys and will still ride with them at the resorts, but they're just not reliable enough to ride with in the BC. They're still living the single life and are more interested in the social life and partying than they are serious riding. Even though they've been riding all their lives, I've already passed them up in my two and half seasons on a board. The difference - I go to the mountain to RIDE! They go to ride a little, then chill in the lodge and drink a few beers, try to pick up some mountain skanks, then go ride some more. A casual day like that is cool occasionally, but 9 times out of 10, I'm there to ride until I can barely stand up anymore!

Sounds like you NEED to come to one (or more) of these classes and meet a more reliable caliber of friend! :-)
