BTW, I think SA gives a discount if you're a snowboarding forum member. I can't remember where I saw the sticky though. But they do have great videos. I really enjoyed their buttering vid. I like the way it progresses in the video.

Glad you're ok man.
Ha! Yeah, that's pretty accurate.



Thanks, yeah, I definitely take it easier now when it's icy (last season really hampered my progression). I did end up getting the SA videos last season, I agree, they are great.

I like your thinking here, the blow to the head obviously didn't do too much damage.

Have a speedy recovery and buy yourself a new bucket!!
Thanks! Just picked up this today:

Being a dad of similar situation, this was a HUGE help for me to ride safer and better in the park.
You may want to check them out if you haven't already.
Not saying I haven't slammed by any means, just a lot less had I not known what to do....
Thanks, I definitely want to check those out, I just haven't gotten around to it (other than their free ones). If this weather keeps up though, I should have plenty of time to watch videos

Glad to see you are doing ok though.

Thanks guys! I'm definitely going to go back to avoiding the park when conditions are hard/icy. I'll be taking a couple weeks off anyway the way the weather is here. I'm waiting for my home mountain to open (the way it's looking that could be even longer).
