I am not a pro boarder. In fact I am a very late fan of the sport. This is more a diary than anything else, although comments and suggestions are appreciated. I'm going to try to keep track of how I do (and what I do) from season to season; what works and what fails; and how I improve over time.

It hadn't stopped snowing since the last report, so by Saturday morning there was more than a foot of new, and still pounding down. This turned out to have a dark side, as A) they closed the Pit because they couldn't keep up with the grooming, and B) once the runs got tracked out they were really bumpy.

I had a real problem with my goggles because of the constant snow. The yellow lens really has finally given out. I met grafta at the top of Mystery and did a run with him -- more or less. I actually cratered twice because I hit roughs that I didn't even see. After that I went to the Seymour shop hoping they might have a light or clear lens on a cheapo set of goggles. Well, they did. Looks like they've expanded their stock. There was actually a fairly good range of choices. Anyway, even with the el cheapos, I could see much better.

Anyway, I really can't think of anything that I did new yesterday. Had a lot of fun, but once the runs were trashed, and without the park as an option, I was kind of stuck.

Frankly, I'm ready for a private lesson. Next good-snow day, I'm gonna get me an instructor. Got to get some ideas for new things to try.
