Yes ironically the morning we left was beautiful with fresh powder and not too cold either. My son really wanted to stay another day and I would have preferred this also since I enjoy snowboarding in the fresh snow more than driving in it. I think many were headed to 7 Springs yesterday because of the lucky snow. Hope everyone who was able to get out there enjoyed.
Now that we have probably finished our season, I have to update the boys' skill levels for High Cascade. 10 year old spent most of the weekend working in the park riding rails which was good practice for him. He did not progress a level however, because I think moguls is next and he hasn't tried that yet. 8 year old has moved from level 1 to level 6 in just 4 days on snow. I have him in soft start at HC but I think he might be ready to move up now. older one bet him he could not ride a box so of course he took the challenge. His instructor says he is now up to riding blue terrain with confidence. Very proud of these boys. Maybe they can coach me to be able to link turns. Problem now is that if they really want to work on new skills (especially older one) they need more specialized coaching I think which may be hard to get at 7Springs Jr Snowsports. They last 2 times he has been there he basically had more of a riding buddy than a coach. Any thoughts?
