I took the kids and some friends up this weekend and tried switch Saturday...found that I can do it very naturally.

I was feeling pretty cool riding normal and switch heading into the lift line until I caught an edge and got tangled up in the orange boundary fencing. ..still a newb.

We've been up 3 days out of the 2 weekends Mt Spokane has been open. Going again this weekend.

Haha so true. I wonder if ice coast riders improve that much more moving west.
