Poma runs!

Alpine Resort after a top day riding

Just eaten steak and chips kindly cooked for me by Pete – yum!! Went up to TC today and had an awesome day – rode the Saddle Basin for a bit, playing with the powder, then came down to the poma lifts and practiced teaching for the CSI exam.

Met a girl Jes, who was teaching herself to snowboard, so I offered to take her through the teaching progressions and spent most of the morning teaching her to turn. By the end she was turning pretty well and I left her heading up to the big green run down. Her boyfriend was impressed and both were really grateful, so I was quite chuffed with myself!

Pete and I spent the afternoon talking through and practicing all our demonstrations. Went really well and feel like I’ve got a handle on how to explain stuff. Then we had a good blast down Main Street (one of the blue runs) and I feel like my turns are really taking shape now – so all in all, pretty stoked, in buoyant mood for tomorrow!
