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?
