1) The kind where I don't give a shit how I fall off a jump because it feels so soft
2) The kind where I have a little more reserve in me to control my manuevers off jumps/rails
3) The kind where I accept the risk of a bad move off the terrain park
4) The kind where I say F the terrain park and stick with only all mountain
5) The kind where surviving the day not bleeping when or if I fall from a solid rut/bump spaced out ever 2 feet
6) The kind where I tell myself over and over what in the hell did I bother coming
7) The kind where I crackle to myself in delight bombing the hill in no way to survive or save myself no matter how sharp the edges are
8) The kind where I give it the birdie and walk away.

Government - If you think the problems they created are bad, just wait until you see their solutions.

Screw being normal

This. Though these days are painfully rare in the Northeast. I die a little watching videos of people hucking themselves into feet of nice soft powder elsewhere. It almost never softens up in the park until the spring where I ride and I've learned the hard way that slushy jumps can be more of a curse than a blessing.

20ftplus jumps + large slushy knuckles + not enough speed = serious back pain.

And powder of course. I have only spent one week riding real powder in Utah but it was enough to convince me to head west when I finish up college next year.
