its not going to happen. I've had only a handful of people make it to the second stage of riding (basic skidded turn) the first day. you need to establish your balance and the whole idea of being on a slope with your gear strapped on. it you want to learn it the right way, you normally wait a year or two before you venture into the park.

I just took my 3 day exam at blue knob for my level II. holy **** was that intense. we spent the last two days jibbing crap and ridding trees. not to mention the ski school director was cool as hell and just let us do whatever we wanted. jibbing snow making equipment was a requirement, and i also got to meet the GM. all and all, if you can make it to blue knob in the next week or two, i would do it. you are allowed anywhere in the trees and they are cool with people just riding out of the property. they basically just want to the hardcore riders that just want to have a good time. the only thing they lack in is a park, so if you are only into park, then you would hate it. but if you just want a place to just go crazy, then its a must.

Most instructors that want to improve their over all riding and teaching abilities will join AASI (American Association of Snowboard Instructors). You then have the ability to be come certified through their organization. There are 3 levels (I, II and III), when you reach your third level you can then try out for DIV team which will then train you to become a examiner. AASI basically dictates how snowboarding will be taught and how improve on it. your level one is basically a cake walk. But then when you try out for level II you have today exam, in which you will have a written test on your second day along with an examiner watching you the rest of the day grading you on the three abilities (teaching, riding, and professional knowledge). then you also have to be able to carve switch, be able to ride bumps without a problem as well as steeps and the park, as well as teach all of those.

i want to get my level III, after that i will have to step back and see where my life is. currently I'm somewhat committed to joining the Navy and going through OCS. but i may just bum it for a year before i do it. One of my friends is going to try for the DIV team, and he wants to make instructing his life, but i have a few years left before i can actually make the choice. however it would be pretty sick. you get o travel all over your region, meeting people, riding all day, and having companies letting you test next years gear.

I want to put new insoles in my boots, mine right now are rock hard and hurt my feet. Can i just use your standard dr.scholls shoe insoles? Or do i have get some sort of more specialized one to work with a snowboard boot. I've never actually looked into if shoe insoles were much different than snowboard boot insoles. I am far too lazy to check, and would like you, ST:S to inform me.

My lack of knowledge tells me to giv'r and go buy some random dr.scholl insoles...

i highly doubt it would matter if it wasn't "snowboard" brand insoles. IMO the gel dr.sholl would be more comfy

yeah that's what i figured, i was just more so wondering about the shape and construction of the insoles, if they were different enough that would warrant purchasing insoles actually meant for snowboarding.

It's funny, i've been snowboarding for what seems like forever, and i don't know **** about gear...lol i just ride.

i've bought some one year and they didn't help me, but it was more for getting rid of heel lift. but a lot of the souls that you can buy can be cut down to the proper shape. just buy something that you like and give it a go. some cost a pretty penny, but if it works you are going to have more fun.

it can, just look at the specs. the side cut and the effective edge can change a lot with just one CM. my one friend works at a shop as well as instructs with me and he rocks a DC board. he loves it so i'm just going to get one to beat the **** up and just buy another one next year. i want to go on a jib-ulation tour next year
