HAHAHAHA the ski out at Sunshine... Ah yes... Great Boarder-X training, especially around 4pm... Maybe we shall pass each other there one day... If you see a black blur that's me!

I'm going to try out boardercross next season, I've been putting it off for too long.
That's exactly my plan, I want to get a personal trainer to kick the piss out of me this off season so i can just make love to boarder x course next year.

i rode a melting boarder cross course at whiteface this past sunday

the small 'pump-jumps' as ill call them were close together with a kicker at the end, then some banked slopes, then some more bumps and features

the banks are fun as hell, they should do a small run of them, its kinda like our version of moguls

Just ride it oooooout, sounds good! lol

At my home hill they have a couple mountain bike trails that get packed down, and thats all that they are; pretty wide burm/bank turns n straight chutes twisting through the trees

Now its a little different because you have to surf it out and really kick out ur back foot and keep it there sometimes (so f*ckin fun/cool looking) so its a little bit irrelevant to boarder X but i thought id share lol.

HAHAHA you just described the final third of my day everytime i go out. It's so much easier to generalize and refer to beginners/skiers as pylons isn't it?

RidePowder if you hit one of these you were going airborn no matter what, and with how much force there was upon impact there would have been no recovery. these piles were 3ft tall before they were groomed. they were huge and shaped like speedbumps, only about 8 inches long, but a foot tall so you had to pop. I think some of us were getting up into the 40+ mph range

I ended up eating it after I didnt pop hard enough over the last one and I contacted the crown of it with the tail of my board which send my nose right into the snow
