well i started looking at these charts because i am hoping to maybe git some lessons this season. I am generally level 6 at some skills, 7 at other skills, and 8 at other skills. In other words... weak in park tricks, switch. Stronger in freeride oriented stuff, dynamic carved and skidded turns no problem. In fact this season i plan to specifically progress my park skills even though in my soul i know i'm more about freeride. I happily compare this to dirt biking... i grew up from 10 yrs old riding offroad. Offroad, not mx tracks. I compare freeride to offroad and park to the local track (or x games maybe). Offraod is wide open spaces... exploration... fresh tracks... natural jumps, banks, trails, desert, mountains, fields, streams... you get the picture. Now i will say this, i'm 49 yrs young this year and this is my 4th full season snowboarding... im loving it even more than offroad riding, baseball, softball, whatever.. its by far my #1 sport now.
