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.
