Whats next???

This is my second yr. I've learned everything from this sight literally. I can do all the basic stuff, all the way up to dynamic skidded turns and some carving on steeper black runs when there's pow. I can get down 7th heaven if that helps with what I can ride. I changed my stance this yr from ducked 18/18 to +3/+18 which has really helped me engaged my toeside quicker on steeper runs. I still don't just charge down the steepest runs. but I can pretty much charge all the blacks as long as there not all moguled out. I ride a arbor element with genesis bindings. I really want to get much better at riding steeps and hitting small cliffs this yr. small (10-15ft)...

In all honesty I'd say go and get a lesson with a good instructor and have him take a look at your overall technique to make sure you've got the basics spot on. There's no point trying to move forward if you don't have the basics perfect.

I did the same thing last season and it was really valuable, he identified a few bad habits I had and showed me how to correct them. Once I worked on them I found it much easier to progress quickly. Sometimes you need to take one step back to take two steps forward.

Yeah I ride the park a bit. I like practicing hitting jumps. I was also thinking a lesson is in order. I'm riding with a buddy who is a csia lvl 3 instructor so I'm hoping he can correct some bad habits I'm sure I've formed.
