my goals this season? To make it up there for all the deep powder days and to be able to shred as good as I did last season (yeah, it's come to that)...anything else is just gravy.

Thirty plus days riding.
Master the blues.
Hit a few blacks.
Spend a whole day riding switch.
Start hitting some kickers.
Get my wife to snowboard.
Knock back a 20 pk of longnecks in one day and still make last chair.

-god help me but I might have a goal to hit 60mph this year. last year I did 55mph.
-cut through really tight gaps between trees and listen to my friends curse behind me as they fall trying to follow (ok that's my goal every year but it's funny)
-get out every other weekend all season (by far, more than I've ever gone before.)
-land the biggest jumps I see (im used to the small jumps where you land mostly flat. I need to lean forward more on the big ones)
-Get a video camera so I can share what I do with other friends.

Get my switch riding to be as strong as my regular riding. Nothing makes my butt pucker more than hitting a rail switch haha. Oh and show off for the snow bunnies for sure

Backflips is my number one thing I wanna get down.
Back 180 onto down rails.
Switch front 270 lip to regular (sounds overly tech but is a trick I always think looks awesome)
540's and 720's of jumps any variations
triple cork 1440s
having fun.

Emerica should make snowboard boots

1: Get more than 15 days on the hill.(Ruined last year due to injury... damn bikes!)
2: Learn how to be better balanced in the air. ( I have this strange knack to turn sideways when I don't want to.)
3:Take a level 1 avalanche course, and start trying to find a backcountry group to travel with and learn from.
4:Learn some park stuff.
5: 360's.
6: Switch carving.

If i get down two of these I will be happy.
