Turns on blue runs
As I've noted previously, I started boarding in early December. I live not far from Whistler, BC and am able to get up to the mountain to ride 2-3 times a week now. While I have progressed - I no longer fall when unloading from the lift chair, am able to link turns down green runs, am improving at straight runs, and have even tried small jumps - I was frustrated to see how much more difficult turning on blue runs is.
I decided to step things up and try a few blue runs, including the Upper Franz run at Whistler. I quickly realized two major problems: 1) the blue runs seemed to be heavily moguled out, making turning really challenging; and 2) the steepness of the runs is both scary and physically hard. I had a couple of bad falls while on toe side that tweaked my ankles. I ended up doing falling leaf down a lot of the Upper Franz run but would rather avoid that since I'm an expert at falling leaf! LOL
My question is should I stick with green runs for the rest of the season and avoid blue runs altogether or should I keep trying the blues? If I should keep trying the blues, do you all have any tips for turning on them, especially dealing with moguls?
