I've been skiing my whole life. I used to do family trips to Okemo, tried snowboarding between 2nd-3rd grade or so. I decided I didn't like it so i switched back to skiing.
I got into park at the beginning of the 2007-2008 winter, had a rough time with injuries during 08-09 winter, and didn't really get to ski at all. But kept this past winter because i love the people, and relaxed attitudes surrounding the sport, everybody is just so much more open minded regarding other skiers than people are off the mountain.
now days I'm doing pretty well, staying happy, keeping grades up (despite skiing almost every day after school), and if you must know my tricks, watch for yourself; Bombing Productions' "Countdown" and or one of the edits on my profile, as I don't like claiming.
