Mainly that I am able to self arrest quickly at the top of a really steep venue after a messy crash.
Since Castle mountain I discovered the best technique for dealing with the disappointment of falling or messing up in a comp.
Go be a dick head on either Snow Blades or a Mono Ski.
This tactic is guaranteed to fix all bad feelings.
I know this for sure because I have now tested it two times in a row.
And both times it has succeeded.
After Blading at Castle mountain, it was time to try something more ambitious,
So I strapped on a mono, and I skied the mountain.
Initially its scary as hell. but when you work out its all in the hips, the pole plant and the short turns, your day goes from pretty ait, to cosmically radular!
I also learned that a 360 on a mono, is a very very hard maneuver.
Here are my last two edits.
