My Time in the “Air”

I have always wanted to be able to throw killer air.  Even though, I’m turning 43 in April, I didn’t see why I couldn’t.  Back in the days, I used to love seeking out the best kickers on the hill.  But, today the jumps are monsterous and the terrain parks are crazy.

Being older has given me a few advantages in learning to throw big air.  1) I’m no longer stupid enough to try to learn to throw a misty, or 360 grab, on the hard packed snow.  I’m smart enough to know, that HURTS!   2) I now have the resources to pay someone to teach me.

So, yesterday I spent 4 hours at Woodward at Copper, an indoor foam pit.

This was one of the best times I’ve ever had on skis.  I am additcted.  You bet I will be going back a bunch before the snow comes down.  Anyone want to join me?
