I rented twin tips this year, i'm not done growing yet, where do all you other freestyle skiiers get all these fresh jackets and pants? Any advice on doing tricks, what are the eaisest tricks to do? my goal for this season is to be able to land a 180 half way through the season and to learn how to hit rails and try to get a 360 down. Do you guys think these are reasonable goals? All help will be appreciated
to start, get comfortable just airing jumps, grabs whatev but no spins or antyhing, once you have reached that start spinning. Just so you know, for each spin 180, 360, 540 etc there are actually 4 new tricks to learn!! for the 180-- you have 180 (spinning left) 180 (spinning right) switch 180 (spinning left) switch 180(spinning right). and the same for each other spin. as for rails... like its been posted, start with boxes, learn how to slide them, thn how to do 270's etc in and out, be comfortable landing switch from jumps and boxes, spend a lot of time just cruising switch to increase your comfort and skill skiing backwards, thisis essential too because you need to be comfortable on your skis to get good at any tricks. IMO once you have 180's and 360's down start getting better at switch, cleaner/smoother/ more stylish tricks, then once you have evewrything you want to do mastered move up agaiun, throw in grabs, etc and you can be a solid park skier throwing maybe 540's smooth with grabs by the end of the serason

added Llamasoop858XSV to the members.


other stuff....
-Banner- We should make one. My photoshop skills are mediocre at best, but I'll give it a shot. If you make one, pm me a link.

-Meetup Day- We should plan some kind of meet up here in the northeast. Pick a mountain and day that is convenient for everybody that wants to go. Ideas for locations and such are welcomed.

-Membership- I'm going to start cleaning up the first post (along with adding a new banner). If you would like to remain on the members list, please PM me. I'd like to also include locations along side of the names.

We got completely dumped on out here in Colorado. CANNOT wait for the season to start up. Let's all hope for a long/white season.

DU man, not CU.

Don't worry, since you're OOS, they'll want your money. You'll get in.

We should ride together though.
