Sounds simple enough to dive in and just try it out. I'm not trying to win anything, although it'd be nice to stop getting last in these races.

To save making another thread, is anybody planning on doing Steven passes 24 hour run?

unofficially just find 3 other folks, pick a chair or course and ....1, 2, 3 go. In some respects its becomes a train and ur just mobbing around with others. Last week we were doing this gully section called "death star"...the first half, 2 maybe 3 folks could hit it at the same time to jockey around but by 1/2 to last 3rd it becomes a tight single file. So pulling a train you want to be the engine and not fall....or be the caboose and pray that no body has fallen. Folks also can pretty much do this in the LBS/natural gully.

My hill leaves it up all year, although it's a tame course (one jump only). Fun to play on, sketchy when it's icey!

I plan on doing a banked slalom race this year at Sunshine. Basically time trial running of a BX course. I've got the boards for it, just need to practice practice practice!

Icey is always sketchy. I was gonna go up to snoqualmie tonight but decided it wasn't worth the drive and doing it alone.

Alpental had a banked slalom like "race" where they saw who could go the fastest. Not sure if they were talking about time or literal speed.

dumb question incoming.

What's LBS.

Concerning my last post, I believe it was timed as far as competition goes but they also recorded or at least clocked people's speed on the course just for sh*ts and giggles and probably bragging rights
