What to expect for the first outing of my second year?
I am 35 (am I the oldest on here, ha) and while I have no background skating, skiiing, or snowboarding, I am pretty atheletic and in pretty good shape for my age. Last year was my first time ever snowboarding (or seeing snow for that matter). I took a lesson and spent 3 days on the slopes and did ok I guess. Was able to do blues comfortably, but felt like I had to go down pretty slow(lots of turns). Havent seen snow since, but With my now annual trip upcoming, I am wondering if I should take another lesson when I get there, or just get out there and get at it?
I would really like to get where I was a little more comfortable with speeding it up a little and not feel like I had to use the turns to slow myself down. Is that too much to expect for a second timer?
Thanks in advance for any advice...
