Any aims for this season?
 
I set an aim at the start of the season to land a backflip and finally yesterday I landed a one (wildcat):yahoo:

Did you have any aims for this season? and if so did you achieve them?

Ride switch made some huge strides towards that goal.

Pretty much this. Just ride as often as I can as hard as I can.

Spend a good half day or more in the park on every day that isn't an awesome powder day.

Nailed it.
I don't feel like an alien just swinging in to hit a couple kickers anymore. I can hang in there now!

I also got to ride a bunch of new mountains in Canada this year, which was awesome! LL, Fernie, sunshine, Castle, Nakiska and Revy.

Must improve switch riding and 180's. They are very sloppy at the moment.

spending every fucking penny I earn on snowboarding as much as possible. being comfortable in the air. riding trees at a high rate of speed. riding steep moguls. riding BIG terrain. Riding alot of different places to get variety of snow/terrain/personality. riding as many days as possible without getting. Riding switch.

I did everything very well except the switch thing, I just started really trying to ride full switch two days ago. I can make a full run on a green comfortably now and can link my turns on blues.... have to really really think about body mechanics though. Hit 36 or 40 resorts, havent counted them up yet, all with great terrain. I missed one pow day because of work, I switched to day shift last month instead of evenings, I was pissed and all my employees knew it, I told them to wait until 10 and I would be alright cause I knew it would be chewed up by then.....

I need to work on this myself. Loveland stopping their jump building and Echo going private ski racing bullshit has really hurt me in this deparment. I have virtually no access to man made jumps now. Just natural features. Pretty much the only use I had for the park was to build skills to take to the rest of the mountain. I need some damn jumps to hit!
