Boardneub's season opener.

Well Ive been with the forum for about a month and have been lurking and waiting for snow to hit so I could put my gear and skills to the test. This is my first season boarding, and i jumped head first into it and pre-bought all my gear before attemping the sport. Thus far i have gone 3 times and clocked a good 12 hours on the slopes. The first two times were at Glen Eden, in Milton Ontario and went alright, a few bruises and some winding falls but nothing to stop me from boarding.
Today was my first time on a real hill, sorry Glen, but you no longer cut it. I experienced Blue Mountain and it was awesome! By the end of the day, a good 6 hours i down-packed my carving (goofy) along with some 180's (aerial) and a tail press or two. Really enjoying the sport and Blue makes all that much better with the glades and tons of runs. The only regret of the day was hurting my wrist. Was running through some sectioned off icy glades and couldn't grab a hard enough edge, as apposed to hitting a tree full body, i pushed off with my wrist *ouch*... lesson learned.
Looking forward to going again this weekend, hopefully.

No comments yet? Should hopefully be hitting the slopes (and maybe the terrain park tomorrow) if I can get off work. Wrist is feeling better, but the bone is still really sore..

i am sort of thinking the same thing he is. Unless the gods of snowboarding taught you themselves, after 12 hours of ride time you dont have "carving" down, you have scraping. 180s off park jumps, this also implies that you know how to ride switch, after your alleged 12 hours? nope, not really buying it. Not dogging you, its not like you have any reason to over exaggerate or lie about any of this stuff, but after 2 or 3 days of riding most people are just graduating from greens/some blues, let alone hitting jumps

If you don't like the way I drive, stay off the sidewalk.

Well it seems my vocabulary is a little off, I'm still learning switch, and im pretty sure I know how to carve but it very well might be scraping? Not sure what scraping is? And my 180's were from going up the sides of the run(were the snow is build up) jumping and rotating 180 deg. Also, the tail presses wernt 100% correct of according to form, just what my buddies congratulated me on completing. Im hitting the terrain park tomorrow @ Blue, an i can garentuee im no pro, but i have been waking boarding for quite some time, so i do feel comfortable on a board. Not trying to be an net' troller, just sharing the joy of the sport..

The have a temporary park setup just off one of the hills. You still need to buy a park pass and helmet for it tho. Didnt end up going Tuesday, Freezing rain made driving undesirable.

I guess that's new. Was up on the Saturday and they told me specifically that the park is opening on the 21st. Maybe they did make enough snow then.

Comearound and Central parks were opened two weekends ago. Some kid was throwing backside rodeo 5s off the second hit ... we gave him a boost he tried a frontside 5 cork.

To OP, either way, Blue is a not a bad mountain at all.
