For me the season hasn't ended yet, but I've learned quite a lot since last season.
I'm able to front 3, front 5 (off large kickers), back 3, do most grabs while straight airing, grab indy while spinning, front/back boardslides, front 50-50 180 off boxes, tame dog, nollie front 540 on ground, nollie back 360 on ground, front shifty bonk 540 out against a pole, 180 tail blocks while moving, hand drag 540's on rollers, learn to play around on walls, c-boxes, stairs, down rails, etc., and a few other cool combination butters.
But even though I can say that I can do these moves, none of them are 'mastered' yet. It's kind of like when a beginner says he finally 'learned to straight air off medium sized jumps'. Said beginner will look pretty goofy, not in control, and simply not stylish while in the air. I feel like that's me for most of the tricks i've learned.
For the last 1 month of snowboarding this season, my aim will be to tweak and perfect these moves. Once I can do a few sweet stylish laps in the park while feeling as if I did my moves with control and style, then I'll call THAT the highlight of my season =/

|Slush Puppie||104 days and counting (with just over a week left of the season). Passing my level 2 instructors qualification is the main highlight but there are many other smaller ones|

1) 70cm pow day at Whistler. It was early season, and i wasnt ready for 'that' much pow... but man it was amazing.
2) Pow days at Cypress after thinking the season was going to be a bust. I was on parental leave during Feb-Mar, so i could hit up the local within 30mins on weekdays... Had at least 3-4 awesome days like that. Unfortunately, lots of people called in sick those days too so here i was... waking up early... quick breakfast... hurry up the hill... Thinking i was going to be the FIRST guy up.... hahahaha not quite.
3) Surprisingly good snow at the end of season... found some awesome outtabounds terrain late in the season at the locals. Trees and fresh lines in April. Yay.
5) Riding! any day of riding is good. Except when it's icy.
I didnt set out any plans, goals or whatever to learn... just ride as much as I could. The season got off to an awful start, but there's like a month left at Whistler so maybe a couple more good days left.......

I've been to Terry Peak 2 years in a row now. And we're hoping to keep it a yearly thing. Its a 9 hour drive.

|CameronFong||Had a fantastic season, one of the most progressive yet. Probably logging about 30 on the board. Done my first rodeo, got my backside board slides down. And almost got my 540's on lock! Can't wait till next season, might fly out too New Zealand for a bit this summer!|
