Not quite sure where to post this question, so am putting it here.
That's it. I can't stand it anymore - working all week and just doing the weekend snowboard thing. I am going to quit, take a year off work, and do a whole season in the mountains!!!
Actually, I've been thinking about this for a while now and trying to save some cash. I want to basically do a whole season somewhere but JUST SNOWBOARD (no work). I am still just a lame intermediate rider and can't seem to get any better, so I figure a couple months out on a board everyday might help me improve a bit.
I am aiming for the 2013-2014 season (I know, still almost two years away
), but I need to save up the cash.
My question is: has anyone got some experience doing something like this? Would you recommend it? I was browsing some 11-week improvement camp-style things run by places like All-Tracks Academy in Whistler, and wanted to hear other peoples' thoughts on these types of things or possibly find out about some other good long-term improvement camps.
My second question is: if you could go absolutely anywhere in the world, for the purposes of improving your riding (all-round), where would you go? And why? I've done Japan, and doing Europe now, and was thinking about N.America / Canada next.
PS: I guess I am getting 'old' now - 30, if that factor weighs in to your considerations at all! (i.e. the party life is not that important to me, but I still enjoy a good apres ski session
