Replying to So stoked to get out on the mountain again
I appreciate it now more than ever. It seems every years that last maybe 5 years my body and brain have gotten more beat. It's been a concern of mine the last few years every off season if I could even ride. The last month my brain has been a little extra funky. Body has actually been pretty fucking solid. Was scared to out and ride anywhere because I felt like I might not be able to do it and that would be too much for me.
On the lift up was all the anticipation of shit, I really hope I can still do this. One I started leaning into turns and just blasting to the music it was the best feeling ever. I was more stoked about raging an easier trail than I've probably been on any trick I've ever done.
Only got to take about 4 runs throughout the day but it felt awesome. I'll probably never get my park skills back up but it doesn't matter to me. Sometimes it takes that fear of not being able to do what you love to really make you appreciate the little things. There was only 1 trail open, I didn't do any tricks worth claiming, but it was still was one of the best days ever.
Sorry for the length and randomness. Have a good season! Stay safe out thurrr.
