Since I'm going into my third season, I still remember the beginning of my second. My first run was kind of shakey, after the third run I wasn't thinking about it. By lunch the intervening months might as well not have happened.

The biggest problem you have starting the season is that the runs aren't always totally up to snuff.

QFE... this season, my first day out I was trying 3's after a few runs, but on smaller rollers contoured to the natural layout of the mountain which makes jumping a bit more difficult at times (as opposed to trying them in parks).

I always say I'm going to take it easy initially and find myself pushing myself a little too much for a first day though... then I forget about any preconceived thoughts and let it unfold naturally, which is the best approach imo.

A few runs. My biggest hurdle is regaining lost conditioning. I spend the rest of the year trail running and mountain biking, but that fitness only partially transfers to snowboarding.

It takes me the better part of a day to get back into the swing of it. I think one of the reasons it takes me a bit longer is because I ride so much wake during the summer. While that does keep me in good shape, the mechanics are different.

Well this year i just went up and had good conditions and got right back into it after about a dozen turns even though I was exhausted from earning my turns. Last year I went up opening day and the only trail open was a steep black and the whole trail was ice. It took a lot longer for me to get my snowboarding legs under me and I never felt back to normal all day.
