Lol, switching boards won't automatically make you go from regular 1's to switch 5's ... come on man. It's how many times you're out there practicing them. But good for you for shooting high.

I have so many goals for this winter it'll be hard as hell to not check off at least one. I'll be riding the most I ever have in a single season this year, so the constant time on the snow should really help things out (since we don't have anything good enough to hit around here unless you want to go up 3 hours). Besides progressing in park and just generally hitting bigger features, I'm really looking forwards to trying some back country stuff, since we don't get that here. Ah this'll be exciting.

I want to hit a couple of small/medium size jumps this year & hopefully by the end of the season maybe hit a bigger one and pull a backflip off I got on some pretty decently hard runs in 06/07 season but not as hard as I would like, so I'd like to get on some harder runs.
To reply to my first post my goals are already starting to be made I got my own board, 2008 Burton Twin Now to do some jumps & black diamonds

my primary and sole objective for the coming season is to find some fresh powder.

hitting the park, rails, kickers and all that 'check ma steez' type nonsense ain't worth a thing to me.... its all about finding steep untouched powder fields and carving your mark. i ain't enjoyed the fizz and float of powder since 2003 now and it is making me twitch!

if i can nail a few nice cleanly grabbed 1s and 3s tho, that'll be a bonus.
Just coz you don't understand it
Doesn't mean it makes no sense!

I got a lot of goals.
Try to get atleast 50 days in the season. (its the midwest, hard to do)
Get clean 7s down, 9s, backflips, frontflips, and make a sweet shred vid.

Few goals...
- Progress up to at least 360s. Got 180s down pretty well, need to throw in a few grabs. Don't think 360s ought to be too difficult. Past that... probably not.
- Get my ollies down pat. I can get that sweet "pop" sensation more times than not, but occasionally I'll get that little stinker with no oomph. Want to minimize those as much as possible.
- Try out boxes. I'm not much of a jibber, just because I'd rather be ripping the mountain or in the trees, but want to check it out.
- Get down nose presses and buttering. Got to do something on the days when the snow's not good enough to hit the trees.

Ride as much pow as I can.

Lot's of days in the backcountry. I really need to explore Buffalo Pass in Steamboat a bit more. So another part of my goals is to bug shay by staying at her place frequently this winter.

Oh yeah, and ride a 14'er mid winter. Not sure which one yet...

well, i'm moving from bc to ontario... so my goal will be to get out on the hills there and try not to cry. after riding out here, it helped me prgress a lot. only one season here and i was super comfortable in the glades, no worries about drops or such and just became more comfortable all over the mountain... going back to hills covered in ice will be hard. i'll have to try to come out to visit a few times this winter.

since all moutnain riding isn't exactally something that can be worked on in ontario, i guess i'll just practice switch and try to get some spins in while i cruise the park.
sarcasm... yeah... like THAT will ever catch on...
