Last year my goal was to improve my switch riding, which I did and to get comfortable doing FS 180's landing regular and switch.

This year's goals

1. BS 180
2. FS 360

I'd also like to go a year without breaking or tearing something too. ..but that's optional.

I wanted 100 bad last year but just coudn't find it in my heart to lap roped off groomers in 40 degree weather. Still got about 55 but so many were just park laps by myself cuz I know a bunch of old coloradans who are way to spoiled to ski/ride when its not "good".

This year shooting for 100+ again.

Albeit our season here has just finished, so this will be for next year
Get more than 10 days!
Learn to ride "properly" - stop all that ruddering because I am no pirate ship.
FS 180s
Attempt switch

1. Do 1500 km on the snow for the year (did 1140 last year)
2. Do 40+ days (last year did 30)
3. Do more than 100 km in one day on the snow (current record is 87 km for me)
4. Do a 10,000m vert day (would be easy if I spend a whole day at Nakiska on the Gold chair)
5. Do some entire runs switch. I'm usually riding 10-20% switch these days to practise, and while waiting for others, want to get more into it.
6. Get as comfortable in the air as I was when I was in my teens and it didn't hurt to break things.
7. Don't break things.
8. Pull off my panties and start doing spin tricks in the air. Boarding for 21 years and I've never ATTEMPTED a 360. Pathetic.
9. Ride Polar Peak at Fernie, it's always closed when I'm there.
10. Ride a whole day of laps in the "Ultimate Steeps" at Lake Louise.
11. Carve harder than a hardbooter.
12. Ride more powder than a pow hound.
13. Get more airtime than a park rat.
14. Do 11, 12 and 13 all on one board.

First season, so...

In order of priority:

1. 30+ days on snow (season pass & 2wks off for the holidays)
2. Don't break any bones
3. Stomp respectable straight airs reliably (not big air, but you know)
4. Hit every run at Shames
5. Ride trees/side country

Maybe a little ambitious, but 30-35 days equals what 2+ seasons for a lot of people?

Other goals may include

Basic butters
50/50's on boxes

OK, flame on and tell me how it's too much and it won't happen.
