Snowboarding

Postby D Fresh » Fri Jan 16, 2009 5:57 am

Looking for people interested in snowboarding. A group of us usually ride at Thomas Park in Marion. We have a rainbow rail, plenty of steep woods to shred the powder, and plans to build a jump or two. Please contact me if you would like to ride or if you're interested in filming/photographing outdoor sports. Don't forget your putter for some horse.

Happy Shredding

We have a trip planned for jan 30-feb 05. We're going to stay in Dillon and board 4 days at Vail, Beaver Creek, and A Basin. We might have room for another if you're interested.

What resorts do you have hookups?

I'll be in mexico during that time...<---not my idea :x

The best I have is in Winter Park. my buddy runs the WP reservation desk.

Aspen as well as Dillion, but those are just places to stay...usually only 1-3 people.

used to have lift ticket deals at all these places, but that's not happening so much anymore. They areall almost up to $100 a day!

I'm still hopinng to get out there at some point. It's a must. I can't do any of the midwest places...just makes me frustrated.

Winter Park/Mary Jane is a fun resort. The mushroom patch is sweet. What type of deals can you get there?

Let me know if you're ever in Marion and want to ride. The woods around old hole 5 have some pretty fun steeps 8) . The natural rainbow rail is a must hit too.

Tanner, i hear there's a train from Boone, or Creston that goes straight to Winter Park - so I may just hit you up on that some time. Thanks for the mention.

They opened a 6 pack high speed on Mary Jane to the top of the Bowl. Opened up 200 acres of groomers in the trees...f'n sick!

I'm not sure what I can get....I know I'll have a place to stay when I get out there. Looking to do a 3 day run hopefully before the seasons out. I went in March last year, solo mission....just as fun as with a crew.

ok, so they were originally posted in the "got questions" threads, but shuld be put here as well.

Instructional content for snowboarding.


Ok, here's some helpful info: It's a great read, even for those experienced. When I read through this - I thought "oh, I wish I hadn't learned THAT the hard way!" (a few times)

http://www.abc-of-snowboarding.com/learn-snowboarding/


Here's a good clip on body mechanics while on a snowboard

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GKinCVl6 ... re=related

Here are more clips by the same guy on expert village - I like his delivery. I've seen about 15 or so clips form this guy, he does a good job.

http://www.expertvillage.com/expert/602.htm

Here's a good YouTube clip from a female rider. Common Mistakes:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZnBdRQLdeSM&NR=1

Here is a link to the same woman, Jesse Sutton, on expertvillage as well.

http://www.expertvillage.com/expert/424.htm



Here's another good instruction from Jesse Sutton:

How to do the "falling leaf", on heelside, and toeside edges...

Heelside: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y0HezNvN1ys&NR=1

Toeside: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6H3KeLBTybg&NR=1

UNlike what I did, learn Heelside first.

Then, how to link your turns:

Remember the biggest thing in ALL of this is maintaining control and being able to stop @ any time. That's how you keep it a positive experience.

I am definitely interested in learning to snowboard. I've been a skier all my life but don't have the time to put into it. When I go I want to have fun instead of falling on my ass all day for a few years. The best place to go for any boarding/skiing fun is the Duluth, MN area, multiple area's with a lot of decent snow and only a couple hours from Minneapolis.

If it's still cold enough on Feb 20th, I'm off that day & thinking about heading to Mt. Crescent in Council Bluffs.
