Same here! Which local mountain do you ride? I have a Y2play pass for Grouse, but go to Cypress when we go in a group. Let me know if you want to ride next year some time. I just got into some tricks, so it'd be nice learning a thing or 2 from you.

I get a family seasons pass at Seymour every year. Cypress is priced out of my range for a family pass, and my wife hates the gondola at Grouse, so that leaves Seymour. Having said that, I fully intend to try as many different mountains this upcoming season as I can.

As to learning anything from me, here's what I have to offer:

- Cab 270 to snow-angel
- frontside faceslide
- backside buttslide
- and the ever-popular jump trick: 90 to scorpion, although I've managed to turn that into "90 to multiple cartwheels" a couple of times.

I'm up for meeting up any time. Not sure who'll learn more, though.

Seriously, I'm very interested in seeing how much this balance beam helps my confidence and balance on features. Based on just one use, I'd say "a lot".

best post in a while I'm still chukling. NOT because it's funny, but our time on the board and skill level are so the same.

THAT IS ME

Ever done a cab taco? That's when you end up draped over a feature, face-up. Hurts.

I've done plenty of tacos. They hurt so bad, especially when it's a big Ollie-On handrail so your just dangling their... not fun
