Update for Snowolf

Hey Snowolf - It's the 50 year old woman beginner snowboarder with an update. I have come a long way this season. Following is my run from Saturday, last run till we go to Mammoth in two weeks.

I know I still have a lot to work on, it feels like I'm bending my knees but NEVER looks like it on the videos. I also notice I rudder my back foot on the steeper terrains on my toeside turn. Still pretty shaky in areas, but I made it down the Blue run that ended with a small Black Diamond and I didn't fall!

Thanks for the encouragement and next year I can hopefully get even better!

YouTube - black diamond run

Can cross snowboarding off my bucket list!

for someone who is learning.
IMO it looks like you progressing really well. most beginners i see are falling leaf all the way down.keep it up.

side note: mammoth is going to be epic for you.can't wait til May to pick up my mvp pass and hit the slopes before summer hits mammoth.

Hey, have a good look at the side hits and trees on your vid. In a year or two you'll be hitting those instead of riding down the middle.

Of course I meant hitting the side hits, not the trees
You'll be riding around the trees hopefully.

This thread is awesome. I love seeing people get stoked about their progress on a board. My siginficant other is trying to learn our fine sport as well at age 36. When I get home I am going to show her this video of you kicking that hill's a$$ for encouragement.

Have fun at Mammoth! The fresh snow yu guys are getting out west must be AWESOME!

You are correct, it's not very steep. It's an easy black - that's why we chose it as my first one. But hey, the map shows it as a black so that's what I'm going with! lol
