I was actually only riding for about 3 hours before i was carving down a couple blues, but i think thats just because previously i had been skateboarding/longboarding for years and years.

I would not put too much stock on the color rating for the runs. The mountain I ride mostly only has blues and blacks and the blacks all have intense moguls fields, cliff drops and the such. I was riding breck a week or so ago and was amazed at how much more tame and flat the blues and blacks are in comparison to where I normally run. Each place is different...but for the most part greens are just blues with more flat spots....

4 full days of riding. woke up, drove 2 hours to the mountain, bought my setup and rode all day and night. drove back home 2 hours. next day repeat (except the buying part). over and over. finally on the fourth day it just clicked.

dont want to sound like an ass bragging, but i am gonna have to say it (guess because i have skateboarded my whole life)

2-3 hours and i could go down the black diamond fine, switching from full speed to carving, and back

After a few hours I could do skidded turns and right at the end of the day I started linking them. That's all I had wanted to be able to do on my first day, so I felt pretty damn good about it.
