First turns of the season!

... were quite dicey.

but REALLY fun.

not surprisingly other folks reported a larger skier triggered slide near by.

A few lessons learned for these early season days...

  • wear a helmet
  • wear a beacon, probably dig a pit or two.  These heavy, wind-loaded dumps are very prone to sliding...
  • be patient... as the first day will not go smooth...
  • shy away from BC booters in the beginning...
  • early bc days are tricky... it's never worth getting hurt.
