k8xp Omfg I ended up on a black and blue run on accident today. Never been on the lift at snoqualmie so we just jumped on one. I just looked at their map online and it was tirple 60.

I didn't die though! When i got to the top of that thing i figured id be coming down on a gourney. I did fall a lot but I did okay. So only made that mistake once, spent the rest of the day using Holiday, much better!!! Got enough confidence to try a box at their mini park. Made it a foot then ended up going down it on my knees lol.

What an adventure today.
My ass is bruised. Lol.

poutanen Don't worry about where you are compared to other people... As long as you're having fun, you'll stick with it and get better. Good to have a couple practice days between lessons...

k8xp Was planning on hitting up Snoq tomorrow too, but unsure about boarding in the rain

I had my 2nd lesson. There were 6 other people though, and I was one of the worst lol

Can't explain how happy I am, even though it's just the basics.

I literally have thirty dollars in my checking acct until next payday, which is two weeks away lol. So I see babysitting in my very near future. But worth it for sure
Well I'm late to the party, but I was going to say this... My fiancee has had about 5 "group" lessons over the years, and every one of them ended up being just her and the instructor.

She's been boarding about 100-120 days now, with lessons every 15 days for the first 60 or so. And she is GOOD... Like it scares me sometimes.

So group lessons good attitude and practice practice practice!

BTW, not sure if there's a similar program in the states, but once you get the basics of boarding down, look into ski/snowboard patrolling. In Canada, if you volunteer to be a patroller, they will cover weekly lessons, lift tickets, etc. to improve your riding. You need to be at a good starting place, so give it a season or two, but it's a great way to get on the snow with good people, learn some new skills, and best of all save a LOT of money.

I was thinking about making some turns up there tomorrow, when they said the rain would stop. But now I'm not so sure that the rain is going to stop anymore. I'm in wait and see mode. I might hold out for Saturday night if it's going to be better, but that's debatable too.

Stickz, what about next week Wednesday? I can only do nights on the weekends, and by the time I can get to Stevens on a weekend night, I only have about 3 hours to ride.
