last day of the season was yesterday. was sort of sad but ended on a great note. worked up the courage to attempt a 360 off the biggest jump i've done to this date (30 ft, i know it doesn't sound like much) and i stomped it clean on the second try.
at the beginning of the season i set out to land 1 FS 360. i've mastered them now and have landed a few BS 360s as well as 2 FS 540s which were HUGE for me. once i landed the 5 and the 30 ft 360, it was like the snowboarder i had always dreamed of becoming was now actually in reach when i never would have imagined it would be before this season.
needless to say i'm PSYCHED and can't wait to land a FS 7 off a 50 footer next season.

This winter was my 4th season.
I rode switch a bit for most runs.
Rode 28 days at 4 different local resorts,and avoided serious injury for the most part.
Overall a great season,hoping next year is as fun.

You can't idiot proof anything because fools are so damn clever.

Just got back from a week in Colorado for the kids Spring Break. Rode Copper and Ski Cooper. This was a pretty good season overall:
FS 360
Improved at riding switch
a day of powder cat skiing w/PC Powder Cats
Rode lots of powder at Powder Mtn UT
added two more resorts to my list of places I've ridden-Powder Mtn and Ski Cooper in CO.

I should add that I finally hit some small jumps. Unfortunately this little park wasn't served by a lift, just the bottom of a run. Was with family so I had to wait till I hit the bottom to practice on these jumps. 8-10 footers with very steep landing pads so my first 5 or 6 times I just was learning to ride up to them and fight the sloshy grooves put in by so many people on a warm spring day. Finally toward the end I was catching some air and landing. A couple times I popped too much and didn't have the expected speed so I landed a bit unbalanced but still managed to not fall from them, which probably means I wasn't trying hard enough but screwed up my shoulder earlier in the year and didn't want to make it worse

Oh and I also took my first out of state overnight riding trip. Only 2 nights and 4 hours away but shows some level of dedicated for my first year right?

I conquered, well maybe not conquered but faced my fear of real air (25-30ft tables). I can now tweak my indys, shiftys, and this weekend I
did my first method off a 30ft tabletop. Then proceeded to spend the rest of the day tweaking my method.

I can 50-50 all the boxes at my resort and have hit a few rails, including the rainbow and dragon. Can do FS 1's and BS 1's on small jumps. Tried a BS 3 and it was more like a BS 210 to heeledge catch, multiple backflips into Utahs softest powder.

Got myself a helmet this year with all the tree riding we have been doing. Got my first season pass this year.

Cant stress the importance the helmet played in my progresion this yer. A real confidence booster for sure.
