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!
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!
