Mine have blue tiger stripes

Always appropriate to sneak up behind gf when wearing, with at least a couple of pelvic thrusts... what, it's the short's fault

Def appropriate for a lappy or two

Usually it's the other way. Toe side turns scare beginners.

Do it. I learned by my second day without any lessons. First day was only a few runs anyway (Keystone, couldn't breathe for crap) and by the end of my very first day I was comfortably cruising down the hill. To stop I had to force myself to crash, but hey, that's after a few hours. I think I literally learned after 3 of those tiny runs at the top of Keystone.

I wasn't hooked yet. Went again after a dumping in So Cal (happens once, maybe twice a year) a few months later, learned to hit a toe side turn and I've been hooked since.

So heres the question.
With so little experience will i be able to enjoy the week or spend all week like a total beginner falling over constantly? The package has 2 hour lessons every day. Obv i have no time now to practice before i go.
I also know its a very vague, almost unanswerable question. But i guess i really want to know if im wasting my time and money. I really want to go and prob may not get another chance for years.

Thank you all.

Paul.

wrathfuldeity shit...given ur going to waste time and money....

so the issue is what do you want to waste time and money on....

drugs, hookers, fine food, scotch, cigars.....

what memories do you want to die with?

doesn't mean either/or....

may I suggest the above list as an apres appreciation after snowboarding for the day....in the hot tub and btw as wisely noted...pace yourself.

grafta Do it! You'll have fun, especially if you have some lessons built in. A couple days and you shld be able to link turns and get around ok.

Organise some apres business too, and take advantage of hot tubs and mountain lifestyle. Eat good and have a good time. Don't turn down a trip that could make for some great memories... yeah, even if you don't get to ride in a while.

Worth it!


Oh yeah, pace yourself. Don't plan to be on the hill from open til close on the first day. You won't even be able to ride the next day... stretch!
