Jan.22/12 - Day 1/Week 1/lesson1

Posted 02-02-2012 at 11:41 PM by seriouscat (NOOB Diaries)

Going to do it properly this time. First I watched the wolf and snowprofessor videos at home. I got a private lesson right off the bat to evaluate how much I still remember.

Skating sucked, stepping is easier due to familiarity, T-BAR was brutal, par for the course. Standing up was still easy, heel side traverse and garland was still decent. Toeside traverse was terrible, very unequal pressure. Though this is partially due to the boot discomfort. At the end of the hour I was able...

Thought Id document my progress getting back into snowboarding after 6 years, and taking it seriously for the first time. Maybe this will help someone else in the same boat. Any advice and comments are welcome

First some back ground information. I am from Alberta Canada, and head to the mountains frequently during the summer to backpack and scramble. I do some winter activities like snowshoe and ice climb, but these never held my interest for long periods of time. I thought snowboarding...

2012-01-28 Last night

Family night riding last night (Saturday night). It was raining, and the forecast wasn't any better for today. Not interested in riding in those conditions, especially on a weekend when it's crowded as hell, so I'm staying home today to ice my butt and my knee and relax. Tomorrow, back to work.

So, last night I was doing some tail manuals down Goldie and started to realize that I've been lifting the nose nowhere near what I could be. OK, so more practice. Just a matter of more...

So I taught a class on Wednesday. The riding was.....FAN-FUCKING-TASTIC! My students loved it! They got to ride powder, and ride it they did. I was so proud of my little groms. They loved the powder, and it helped them with their confidence sooo much. See folks, powder snow IS good for you. By the end of the night, they were telling me how they "hope that it's like this next week too". All I could say was, "I hope so too".

After class it was my turn to go...

2012-01-27 Second-best day

Posted 01-28-2012 at 10:37 AM by Donutz (This Side Up)

OK, Friday wasn't quite as sunny as Thursday, it didn't have quite as much snow, there was a little bit of fog, and so on. Still, it was a damned fine day. Continued to work on the Mushroom park features, continued to work on my 180s off that side hit on Chuck's, and continued to work the rollers in Mushroom. I still can't quite get 180s off the rollers, but that's just me being reluctant to commit. I've started the smallest bit of shifties on the flat box, and I'm probably just about ready to go...
