Box Slush Seshhh

The sun was shining and we were bored today so we decided to go shred the slush a bit. Met our friend Kenny out there and got to shoveling. Ended up with a couple small jumps, which I really didn't hit much cuz my leg is still sore from my rail crash last week. haha. We had a flat rail and a round skinny rail set up also, but our main fun was a mellow flat box we set up. It was super smooth and super fun!

One thing I love about our spring sessions is that I learn so much new stuff during that time! The snow is soft, we set up features however we want them so it's a better time to progress. Today I learned to do a grab while boardsliding a box, and I got better with my frontsides (which I didn't get a good pic of cuz the stupid camera died).

Anyways, here's some pics from today.

Photos & Update.

Here's a sweet pic that I just have to share with the world.

Photo credit goes to my boyfriend Dustin.

Spring park rules! Ha. Finally learned how to hit a rail from the side. Well, sort of, I tried 4 times, landed 1 of them. Nice bruise on my legs from the other 3 attempts. At least now I have a feel for it, and I'll have some more time to practice before the snow melts :)

Here's a couple more pics from the last few days.

Random Laugh.

So this has nothing to do with snow or shredding, but this just made me laugh out loud. I love my cat, Winter, to death and she's pulled half of the stunts that's in this video. Laugh and enjoy.

Ladies Park Night 3 & Spring Shreddin'

So I FINALLY got to go to a Ladies Park Night at App Ski Mtn. It was SO much fun! Ladies Park Night is just a night where they set up a girls specific park so we ladies can shred it up without dudes bothering us! :) The set up was fun. There was a small jump, maybe 10 ft. at the most, round rail, rainbow box, short fat box, and a long t-box. Everything was chill and I even won a pair of socks in the raffle! Ha. Last thing I need is socks, but oh well. It's free, right?!

Anyways, here's a couple photos of me from the LPN, and a few more from our spring park we have set up on the remaining snow at Beech. Enjoy :)

It's Over... Almost

Well Sunday ended the season for Beech Mountain Resort, and I must say, it was one hell of a season! Great snow, great conditions, fun events, everything was just awesome. I hope next season is just as sweet.

Forecast for today was rain. Woke up to a snow covered deck :) That just means a little fresh for our spring park! We were going to start on the spring park today, but the rain/snow mix has postponed our digging till tomorrow. I'm so pumped for the spring park. It's when I usually learn new tricks because it's a slushy soft landing, and we can set up features however the hell we want!

I was one of the two instructors that got 'Instructor of the Year' for this season! Stoked! Yeah, I'm kind of a big deal :) j/k. But I am so happy that they picked me! Made me feel all good inside. Ha.

The final Ladies Park Night at App is this Friday. I'm NOT missing this one! Should be a lot of fun! Get more info HERE if you're interested in going.

Here's a video I'll share with you...

Injuries Suck!

Fresh snow on the ground, 3 days till Beech Mountain Resort closes, and new coat of wax on the board... damn right I was gonna ride regardless of how my knee felt! Got one run in and it was killing me. Damn. Went inside and sat on my ass for about 4 hours. Took some ibuprofen. Then my friends set up a little box on the beginner area right outside ski school. Couldn't help myself and had to session it! Surprisingly, the knee didn't hurt once I starting riding. Thank god! Got a few good hits in and called it a day. Injuries suck. The season is almost over and I'm gonna enjoy it any way I can. Even if it is 'take a couple runs and then take a 4 hr break'! Ha.

Tomorrow is the End of Season Party for Beech. Poker run. Pond skim. Live music. Oh yeah. Be there or be square ;)

Summer Goals

My goals for the summer (in no particular order):

Get a new board and new boots

Get an iPhone

Get a GoPro so we can get some sick shots next season :)

Take a trip to Liberty Snowflex Centre so I can get a summer shred sesh in.

COMPLETE P90X instead of just doing half of it :)

Get a mountain bike so I can ride with my man.

Get a RED Hi-Fi helmet in Electric Blue (pic in last post)

I WILL complete these goals!
