2012-02-12 Improving

Posted 02-13-2012 at 02:21 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

Went up yesterday (Sunday) on my own, as wife is still feeling like crap. The freezing level was obviously right at resort level as the precip kept shifting between rain and snow. Oh, and fog like pea soup too. I was very alarmed though to see how badly the recent warm temps and rain had eroded the snow base. There were bare patches on Chuck's, the Towerline saplings were all almost completely bare, and rocks showing through the bowl at the bottom of Velvet Gully. To make matters worse, the crew...

Feb.5 - Day 5/Week 3

Posted 02-06-2012 at 12:10 PM by seriouscat (NOOB Diaries)

Got up late on Sunday after messing with the bindings. I didnít think I progressed enough for the next lesson, so I decided to go for a afternoon practice run . The new malamute boots are much much stiffer, and press on some weird pressure spots while just walking and standing. however they would prove to be extreme comfortable while riding. This the first day I felt no discomfort on the feet. They do however, have a much larger footprint than the Burton boots.

The 3 hour session...

Jan.31 - Day 4/Week 3

Posted 02-02-2012 at 10:45 PM by seriouscat (NOOB Diaries)

After work practice on turns. The first hour was not very smooth as I think I am a little fatigued from other exercises. The form wasnít as good as the last session. The boots are actually bothering me a lot. Finally found a place in town with right Salomon boot sizes in stock. I am going to test them tomorrow.

Last two hours was a lot better, slowly getting the form back together, and was able to link a few turns together. Generally the turn distance has shortened. Near the end of...

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

Posted 02-02-2012 at 10:43 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 10:42 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....
