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

Posted 02-02-2012 at 10:41 PM by seriouscat

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 to pendulum on heelside and get by traversing on the toe side. Instructor left instructions to practice toe side traverse and pendulums. Next lesson will be initiating turns.

Practice: As we only used the T-BAR for the lesson. I had trouble falling the first two times on the chairlift. after that I was able to make it down the chair on the heelside.

I worked on heel side only without falling for two runs to get the feel of the hill. No falls. Spent rest of the day working on toe side assignments. Did one toe to heel turn. Definitely getting better by the end of the day.

Total hours spent:
1 hour lesson
4 hours practice

Falls/fatigue factor:
No major / uncontrollable falls. Feeling very tired, so I know I am fighting the board. The ugliest thing was falling off the T-BAR once.
