I spent a week at Copper Mountain last month -- short review: I had a great time -- and I think I want to go back soon. I'm curious if anyone has experience with Woodward at Copper.
I'm particularly interested in finding out at what point I would get the most out of it. Is it for all ages and all skill ranges? I've only been snowboarding for a couple of years (with a long history of skiing before that) and I know I want to learn how to get air and do tricks, but I was thinking I should get comfortable riding switch before I actually commit to something like this.
Also, any recommendations for similar programs at other mountains are appreciated.
You might want to call the front desk and see what they have going on for day camps. Sometimes it's 2 people sometimes it's 6 people in it but it's based on skill level not age. Don't let kids freak you out I'm almost 30 and ride with a bunch of 20 year olds that slay it.
Do you think it's better to get the basics like pops and ollies down and then go for coaching? Or is it easier to learn the basics in a controlled environment and then play around with them on your own?
Well are you going to learn it on your own or not. Sometimes you need someone riding your ass to get shit done.
Thought I'd resurrect an old thread here. I'm considering doing a Freestyle Lesson at Woodward while out there in February.
From you guys that have done this or taught like BA, would this benefit a guy like me who is just learning park? I'm an intermediate 40yo rider but I'm really just looking to get a little coaching and confidence on features. I have no desire to hit huge jumps or back flips off the rails. Just get a little better on small features and be confident doing bs and fs boardslides, presses, etc.
I guess what I'm asking is would it be waste of time for someone at my skill level or would I most likely progress from a day of coaching? I'm not sure if I can learn it on my own without getting pushed past the fear by someone.
