I'd say if you ever find yourself in the Barrie/Collingwood area to hit me up but I'm pretty much done for the season unless theres some snow left in March...

P.S- theres Horseshoe Valley, Snow Valley, Mt. St Louis/Moonstone and they are all pretty much off HWY 400
I'll definitely be adding those to my list of hills to hit. Not sure if i'll be up in your neck of the woods between now and the end of the season, but if I am I'll drop you a line.

i really think east coasters have it the worst for conditions, but that makes it easier for us wherever else we go lol. i love carving on ice. im still learning and fine tuning my technique every time i get out. i just started getting on rails this season. best tip i learnt this season was to keep my front hand lower then my back hand. this totally balanced my body position, rather then thinking about if my knees are equally flexing and if my body was centered over the board.

u are in a good place. have fun at your pace
The instructors at Boler are top notch. They've been super patient and have lots of advice. Thanks for the tip about the hands. I'll definitely keep that in mind the next time I'm out.

I'll do my best to keep the board on the snow my first time on a real mountain.

My first choice would be blue mountain, ideally on a weekday, 2nd choice would be Mt St Louis, and I might put St Louis first on a weekend and blue 2nd due to crowds.

I'm hoping to get out to at least one decent sized hill before the season is up. Have any suggestions?

I know of Blue Mountain, Hockley Valley, and a friend suggested making a trip out to Elicotville.
Chicopee in Kitchener bro!
