I learned not to buy a season's pass if I could only get out twice this season

I learned how to do a suitcase grab. Other than that, I've been fine tuning my bust anywhere on the hill tail presses. I can grab the tail while pressing. I also improved my switch riding and flatground backside 180.

I think next season I'm going to work my courage back up to bigger kickers since I've been doing kiddy jumps again.

It's weird, on the slopes I won't hesitate to hit a jump. But in the park, I see a bigger jump and get scared again. At least I have a helmet now.

I learned that herniating 2 discs in your lower back sucks balls and no type of fairy dust or unicorn horn could do anything to save my wasted season. Before that I was learning fs boardslides and finally after over 10 years of riding getting more comfortable riding switch for anything more than like 15 seconds.

I learned that -
I'm still shit scared of the park.
I can finally do a nice 180.
that free riding is def my thing.
Cliff drops are the only thing that scare me (outside the park)
Helmets will protect you from trees.

I learned that when you take a hard fall, get right back up as quick as you can and keep going. To sit there in the cold and let the pain just settle in saying ooooo owwww waaaaa.......

So from now on....get up and keep going ASAP.


Just one of the many things I learned this season...

No shit. My tailbone is still pretty tender from a hit I took over two months ago - and that was with pads.

I'm very happy with the progress I made this year. I'm very comfortable everywhere on the mountain now. Finally made my way into the park and I can do simple boxes and hit any jump in there outside of the stupidly huge ones. I want to continue to progress in that area next season and work on more complex boxes, start tinkering with rails, and work on more tricks off of jumps. My main goals for next season are getting BS and FS 360s on lock. I wouldn't mind to start working on inverted aerials as well.

I learned to always make sure the heel cups are tightly screwed in on my Ride bindings. Ruined maybe a quarter of my season not realizing what the problem was. Just assumed I was riding worse cuz my skills were deteriorating for some reason...
