Jan.29 - Day 3/Week 2/Lesson 2

Posted 02-02-2012 at 11:43 PM by seriouscat (NOOB Diaries)

Got up late but I was able to book the same instructor for another private session. I put on some rollerblade knee pads since the knees are still bruised from last session, and G-forms still have not arrived. Got a stomp pad as well. Did some traversing to warm up and showed him my turns so far. We headed to the development area for turn training. My problems are mostly related to not leaning forward enough. He also wanted more upper body rotation into the turns. The turns on the development area...

Jan.26 - Day 2/Week 2

Posted 02-02-2012 at 11:42 PM by seriouscat (NOOB Diaries)

Went to the hill after work to practice. Lots of kids around, so getting off the chair lift was a bit of an adventure. Just canít turn well enough yet on one leg to dodge all the loligagging people on top of the hill. Skating was much improved.

Again I went down couple times on heelside traverse only for some confidence. Worked on traversing toe side for the next hour. No major issues. I got tired of sitting down to switch between toe and heel, so I started to experiment with turning....

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

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 Iíd 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...

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...
