hey. i'd like to know what you can do now and how big u can take it, and what you hope to be doing by the end of this coming ski season. For me, i can do pretty big 7s w/ crap and 9's as my best tricks. i hope to be doing corks or mistys by the end of this year since i can do em on tramps and shit. how bout u guys?
I am gonna be skiing a minimum of 4 days a week this coming season (I'll probably drop out of school or do homeschool and rent a place up at the mountain) because I can't drive. The police took my liscense for 6 months. bitches.
The tricks will come. It's a good idea to have a goal of x tricks that you want to do, But it's better to just concentrate on becoming a more well rounded rider.
I want to be a better skiier on all terrain this next year. Be able to ski powder with more control and tear it up in the park.
I am going to be skiing my ass off working on tricks like cork spins and stuff.
I can do lincolns on snow right now.
On tramps I can do cork-1260's but no way in hell does that mean I am going to be pulling that on snow this next year.
My goal is to come out relatively unscathed in april..

My goal this season is inverts. I was doing corked 3's and 5's last season but want to go upside down not just off axis. Ill probably start off with a lincoln but i want to have flairs in the pipe down by the end of the season.
I can already do a 180, 360, and lotsa grabs...but I want to try some switch take offs and stuff and rails...I definitely wanna have at least 1 invert down by the end of this season...starting with a backflip...I guess I'm already a pretty well rounded skier outside of the park so I'll be working mainly on that ...and pipe...I suck at pipe so far!
yeah, mainly I just wanna go bigger and learn lotsa new stuff. heh heh do you think I can do all that in 1 Winter? I guess we'll see...I'm so Physched!! Need to ski...need to ski..need to ski...haha
mhmm. yeah, that's a good goal...creativity.
and Ghostdragon, I'm homeschooled so I get to ski during the week...never miss the days when the snow is good...do school in the evenings! It's great. I totally love it.
I can do 180's, 360's, and 540's with grabs, forward or fakie, but would really like to learn bigger spins and some inverts this year. My main goals this year are a front flip, a lincoln loop, and a backflip, probably in that order. I think I'll be able to learn the first two but for some reason a backflip really scares the hell out of me. The fact that 90% of the people who talked about doing backflips for the first time in another forum ended up stopping halfway and landing on their heads. Granted none of them mentioned spinal cord injuries but who's to say it wouldn't happen to me. Any tips on avoiding botching a back flip would be greatly appreciated. If you have any advice on lincoln loops feel free to throw that in too.
tramps help a little, but snow is a different world, and im breaking tricks down to many parts so that when i do do them on snow i now exactly what to do and when to do it. now im gonna get a ton a shit for how much of a dumb ass i am.
Thats all you really need to do, just cork em, grab em, and cross em. We are not in the aerial olymics, we don't need to do huge 3 backflip 5 spin, to be sick. Its all about style. Try the d-spin 720, i'm tryin to do that this year, and will eat a ton of shit before i can do it.
Cant we all just get along, fuck that, can't we all just get a bong
i am gonna fuck as many chicks as possible (0), and then ski 5 days a week. COP got a super pipe which should be good shit. But really I want to make the treks to golden or castle and hit up the back country. I got a handful of crazy lines at castle and some have never even had a first decent. Golden is just crazy, it would be fun just to go chill there. if anyones up to it, we should get together, and go ski castle, these lines are hype. ones a 400m shoot, on a 50 or 60 degree angle its like 18 feet wide. went and checked it last year. check it out under castlemountainresort.com go into pics and then into extreme pics. those are some crazy lines.
