lol... Yeah so when I tried doing that jump switch and rotated funny in the air, I landed on my side. Went to the hospital yesterday morning and the doc said I probably didn't crack a rib, most likely just bruised the muscles. But MAN IT HURTS!

Pisses me off that I can ride all the big lines fine, but I try to do a little FS 180 and I bonk myself off the snow.

FUCK SWITCH RIDING!

Ya, at the top of north divide. It was from last year, our first time on a real mountain. We thought we would start with a single black. A few days later we started rippin down the db's on goat eye's. We didn't have any avy gear then, so no divide or wild west.

And we're finishing our second season in the west.

I'm really impressed with her riding but she still doesn't see herself as good yet?!?
