hockeyjock I learned that a 30 day season takes a ton of dedication, considering my 2 hour drive.
I learned to do boxes with ease, and to go fast but not to fast over them, had one experience where I landed about 10 feet to far and got the wind knocked out of me.
when you fall on rails it hurts like hell.
I learned to ride switch, and land a switch 180.
and a bunch of stuff in the park. I still cant so switch 180 rotating to the left.
hope to learn to do a 360, and maybe at backflip, thats what woodward is for.

SilverK20A3 I learned to always make sure the heel cups are tightly screwed in on my Ride bindings. Ruined maybe a quarter of my season not realizing what the problem was. Just assumed I was riding worse cuz my skills were deteriorating for some reason...

No shit. My tailbone is still pretty tender from a hit I took over two months ago - and that was with pads.

I'm very happy with the progress I made this year. I'm very comfortable everywhere on the mountain now. Finally made my way into the park and I can do simple boxes and hit any jump in there outside of the stupidly huge ones. I want to continue to progress in that area next season and work on more complex boxes, start tinkering with rails, and work on more tricks off of jumps. My main goals for next season are getting BS and FS 360s on lock. I wouldn't mind to start working on inverted aerials as well.

PaulyMolitor I learned there are no craigslist hookers in summit county, if you want action you gotta go to denver... or a trailer park in leadville

NyInfamous'Girl I learned that when you take a hard fall, get right back up as quick as you can and keep going. To sit there in the cold and let the pain just settle in saying ooooo owwww waaaaa.......

So from now on....get up and keep going ASAP.

Just one of the many things I learned this season...

I'm still shit scared of the park.
I can finally do a nice 180.

Cliff drops are the only thing that scare me (outside the park)
