Now hold on just a second,...!


We tell ppl here alla time to "get out & ride with ppl who are better riders than they are." That doing so will "Up" their game! :D

I agree with that philosophy whole heartedly. It'll either up their game, or put 'em in the hospital. One of the two! ;) lol

Yeah I know. I've said the same thing about basketball for 25 years. But it really depends on the lvl of person you go with. I have a few homies that are pro riders. I don't get better riding with them. They are so far past what I can ever do. And in a sport that is all you getting better is all about how much time you are willing to put in. I've progressed a lot in powder over the years and half of that was riding solo.

I agree with this. Riding with others that are better than you pushes you and helps you learn new styles/technique of riding.

Don't you think they need to be at a lvl where they can actually implement what they're seeing from the person they're riding with? Like if you took a first year rider out on something really deep and steep they prob won't be able to do what they see you doing. But take the same person out maybe year 3 it's a maybe a diff story. Idk maybe I'm crazy. I was really just making fun of his grammer. I hope he gits silly gud.

Definitely. If the experienced person is parient and can wait a bit. When you step up to a steeper more technical terrain(relative to your current experience) it helps a lot on your current comfort level. What you thought was steep and difficult before becomes easy after just a run or two on heavier terrain.

Onviously we're talking about within reason. It would be irresponsible as all hell for a group of experienced riders with a NooB in tow to just go ripping into steep, advanced, technical terrain.

Ive ridden with a number of sbf members while still getting my mojo back after injuries, illness etc. Nobody had me follow them off a blind, 15-20 ft cliff drop, or into a 55° steeps section.

Anyone who would do that to a brand NooB rider, isn't any kind of a friend.

Well of course and I hope none of us would do that. I was just being extreme to make a point. 20ft cliffs and 55 degrees sounds awesome

Howdy, also in my second season and am a Fusion Pass holder. Let's link up sometime and go ride. I only got about 10 days in last season so I am in no way qualified to help but I'm happy to flounder and fall with ya!

That goes a loooong way towards progressing also! :D

Two NooBs, getting on the hill as often as they can & challenging ea. other? That can work wonders. (...at least for one of ya!) ;) :laugh:

You also double your chances of finding riders with more skillz to join up and ride with. :grin: :thumbsup:

I've had some good success tagging along with randos you meet on the chair or parking lot. BYOB and chat up the friendlies, might be able to tag along for a run or two. Be honest about your abilities tho, don't wanna get led to a tree run or cliff drop you aren't ready for. 😉

Random are tagalongs are fine...but they got to keep up or they get losted. Usually a quick chat on the chair can determine their level of riding and what they are looking for. If what they want and I want are 2 different things, I will point them in the direction...or wave them off (mostly for their own good).

Especially at bakes. You get lost and you can die. As wrath and I have talked about a lot. I've followed my homies times when I shouldn't have. Idk if it made me better or less afraid. Maybe those goes hand in hand.
