deifys Ive got 15 days in the hill so far in January, 4hours X 15 = 60 hours or so. The progression is wild! Still fall from doing shit I dont know how to, but its so rewarding when you get it within a run or two.

supafobb Yeah, I was ready to call it quits too in the beginning. Now, whenever I take huge spills, it's usually because I was trying to do something daring...or stupid... well, I guess sometimes there's an overlap

Btw it still takes me about the first 5-6 days each year to get back to where I left off at the end of the prior season.

Yea i agree, I started about 3.5 4 years ago and by my second season I could go all over the mountain. Just keep at it , repetition is key..
