From the thread way back in sept...
in no particular order...
Ride red rock somewhere in southern Utah
100 days (as is tradition)
More Teton exploration
Hopefully finish my ongoing goal of putting a squiggle on every skiable mountain range in Utah
great basin NP
Don't get hurt
bone in a snow cave
and lots of triple corks
Not enough snow
91 and counting, Ill get there but its really hard to get motivated nowadays + busier with work
Some time in may hopefully
checked off two, added one to the list
slept in a snow cave... alone
Probably spent the least amount of time in the air since I started snowboarding. Which helped with goal 6. so no triple corks..
I havent contributed a nickel to the coffers of some ski resort owning corporate fat cat and am coming up on 300,000 vertical feet climbed with a snowboard attached to me some how. Its been a good but weird season.

|jj998||My goals were not to get injured, learn 360, butters and switch. Had such a late start for the season in february and managed to hurt my self right away, had only 4 days at that point but i came back strong and managed to do 16 days in 4 weeks before the local hill closed down. Really satisfied at that! Learnt some butters, flatspins(not bs 3), managed to land bs/fs 1&3 on small stuff and on the final day managed to do smooth toe to heel edge transitions riding switch. Style and smoothness are far away in my tricks but it's a start!! For next season my goals are to ride smart, 40 days, more butters+flatspins, rails, stylish bs/fs 360 and to take my switch riding to trees+small jumps. During the off season to really hit the gym, train that core and to stay fit overall. Man, I was in such a shit shape for this season, super stressed out for the past 2.5 years and blahblah but it's all good now. Next season will be fucking awesome!|

Active Release Techniques: A.R.T. Most Professional Pro Athlete's use physical therapist that have this designation. Might be 6-8 hundred total in the U.S. just google Active Release Techniques. Would highly recommend doing this if your fortunate to have one in your area.

I actually had a number of goals this season, and except for managing a few (...rather awkward & frankly somewhat lame) pressed 360 nose spins, I accomplished none of them.
My back trouble kept me laid up thru 5 weeks of the best snow here in Jan. and in the last month or so kept me from several of my plans for some spring riding. I even had to cancel overnighters I had planned the last 2 weekends. (...I'm set to make another go at it this coming sat/sun. but it's still acting up some!)
My goal this off season is to find a doctor(s), physical therapist, chiropractor, or practitioner of Black Freakin' Magic,.. Whatever to figure out and fix whatever the freak is goin' on with my back and joint trouble!!!!!
...then Ima take that shit to some real POW!

spending every fucking penny I earn on snowboarding as much as possible. being comfortable in the air. riding trees at a high rate of speed. riding steep moguls. riding BIG terrain. Riding alot of different places to get variety of snow/terrain/personality. riding as many days as possible without getting. Riding switch.
I did everything very well except the switch thing, I just started really trying to ride full switch two days ago. I can make a full run on a green comfortably now and can link my turns on blues.... have to really really think about body mechanics though. Hit 36 or 40 resorts, havent counted them up yet, all with great terrain. I missed one pow day because of work, I switched to day shift last month instead of evenings, I was pissed and all my employees knew it, I told them to wait until 10 and I would be alright cause I knew it would be chewed up by then.....

1. Don't get hurt
2. Do at least 1 green run with my son (he's 4)
