I conquered, well maybe not conquered but faced my fear of real air (25-30ft tables). I can now tweak my indys, shiftys, and this weekend I
did my first method off a 30ft tabletop. Then proceeded to spend the rest of the day tweaking my method.
I can 50-50 all the boxes at my resort and have hit a few rails, including the rainbow and dragon. Can do FS 1's and BS 1's on small jumps. Tried a BS 3 and it was more like a BS 210 to heeledge catch, multiple backflips into Utahs softest powder.
Got myself a helmet this year with all the tree riding we have been doing. Got my first season pass this year.
Cant stress the importance the helmet played in my progresion this yer. A real confidence booster for sure.

I should add that I finally hit some small jumps. Unfortunately this little park wasn't served by a lift, just the bottom of a run. Was with family so I had to wait till I hit the bottom to practice on these jumps. 8-10 footers with very steep landing pads so my first 5 or 6 times I just was learning to ride up to them and fight the sloshy grooves put in by so many people on a warm spring day. Finally toward the end I was catching some air and landing. A couple times I popped too much and didn't have the expected speed so I landed a bit unbalanced but still managed to not fall from them, which probably means I wasn't trying hard enough but screwed up my shoulder earlier in the year and didn't want to make it worse
Oh and I also took my first out of state overnight riding trip. Only 2 nights and 4 hours away but shows some level of dedicated for my first year right?

Just got back from a week in Colorado for the kids Spring Break. Rode Copper and Ski Cooper. This was a pretty good season overall:
Improved at riding switch
a day of powder cat skiing w/PC Powder Cats
Rode lots of powder at Powder Mtn UT
added two more resorts to my list of places I've ridden-Powder Mtn and Ski Cooper in CO.

This winter was my 4th season.
I rode switch a bit for most runs.
Rode 28 days at 4 different local resorts,and avoided serious injury for the most part.
Overall a great season,hoping next year is as fun.

last day of the season was yesterday. was sort of sad but ended on a great note. worked up the courage to attempt a 360 off the biggest jump i've done to this date (30 ft, i know it doesn't sound like much) and i stomped it clean on the second try.
at the beginning of the season i set out to land 1 FS 360. i've mastered them now and have landed a few BS 360s as well as 2 FS 540s which were HUGE for me. once i landed the 5 and the 30 ft 360, it was like the snowboarder i had always dreamed of becoming was now actually in reach when i never would have imagined it would be before this season.
needless to say i'm PSYCHED and can't wait to land a FS 7 off a 50 footer next season.

|Donutz||I had a great season in general (I've posted a list of new highs already in this thread). But this last weekend I finally got up the nerve to take on a steep that connects Northlands to Velvet Gully on Seymour. I swear this thing's at least a 45 degree angle, with trees. Anyway, not as dramatic as hitting a huge jump, but definitely a milestone.|

i had a pretty good season this year and progressed a ton. so far this year i started landing front 9s and 10s way more consistently then in the past as well as switch back 7s and 9s. got my misty 5s dialed to the point that i can do it off any jump i want. started landed cab 3s and 5s alittle more but still need to work on that a bit.i also just recently started getting backside rodeos and back 1s with a taipan grab. i wanna get a couple more inverts under my belt like under flips and cab under flips and i want to start doing double corks soon but just need the right place to try them.
for rails ive learned a lot and just got a lot smoother in general but i learned to many things to name on rails. the big thing i learned on rails that i like a lot is front 1s on, pretzel 1s off and sometimes i can get pretzel 3s off. i also got my front 1s on switch back 3s off pretty dialed as well on rails and started hitting them switch a little more.
