Every year up until this year I have had limited mtn time. Like 30-40 days max a year. I always pushed my self to do harder terrain even if it was sloppy. This year I have been dedicating my early season to technique as much as possible. Starting with hard pack green runs working on my turns and going as fast as possible then going to blues and then blacks not advancing to the next harder run until I can bomb the lower level run in control with good form. On powdery days I bump up to the next level run.

^^^ Does not compute () Did you mean 3-4 days a year? 30-40 lifetime? As if you are doing 30-40 days a year... I would think you would not need to "start with hard pack green runs working on turns"... even switch. I only get 35 days a season max unless you count snowboarding during the summer.

I meant exactly what I typed. People pick up sloppy technique when you learn too fast. I'm just smoothing out mine... No matter how good you think you are I'm sure there is some fine tuning that can be done, I just never took the time till now....I live in vail, I have an epic pass, it's Early season with mostly just groomers open, why not?
