Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

It's almost that time again Very Happy

Last years goals, what did you want to achieve, what did you achieve? this years goals, what are you going to achieve?

I failed badly last winter, work got in the way. Got a bit higher and faster but no back flips which was my main goal, and the post office rail is still untamed Sad My off piste turned into a straight line cruise missile and I got a bit more balls for jumping off small cliff things.
I have one main goal this year, jump off this - which I think is completely makeable.
The other goals are more things to do when the mountain is stormed out, the rock on the left is begging for a kicker to be put on top of it.
Besides that pass BASI L1 in november and make it 3 winters in a row serious injury free, and grow some balls for the big kickers.

Seems my goals are getting less and less and my off piste free ride/hike for half a day is getting more and more, must be getting old, turning into a powder monkey Sad

Last years goals:Pass CSIA 2, CSCF 1, Stick some 3's, Kicking Horse during a massive powder day. Status:Achieved

This years goals:Get on snow.. Suitable conditions would be eyeing a 25+footer but that is just speculatory, is that even a word? Go to the Horse again and launch "pride rock". Front flip.

Just noticed this was in snowBoarding... shoot me wink

i'm with DebbiDoesSnow and Kruisler, two trips this year is my goal. one with the boys, probably high altitude france in jan and once with the OH, hoping to go to colorado for a week (or two?).

as far as the boarding goes keeping up with my kiwi buddy, finding more powder, maybe getting some air (ie more than couple of feet off the deck), but above all trying to gain some smoothness to whatever i try.

I am way behind you guys as still trying to get off ground and land in one piece. And I am not talking off 25ft kickers! Got bored at work yesterday and went to dryslope. Now have some mean bruises after trying to get some jumps in! Smile No pain no gain.

Goal No1: Get 3 trips in, even if it means bread and water for the rest of the year

Goal No2: Do a big kicker - I just don't have the balls for them

Goal No3: Learn that 180 flip thing that I see people doing as they're going hell for leather. I can do it but only at about 1mph.

Goal No4: Manage to get a first lift and first tracks for once!! Smile

DebbiDoesSnow, I presume that was on snow rather than a dry slope. The latter is very unforgiving with mistakes as my behind knows today. Jumping is part of snowboarding, but like everything in life - size is everything!

 So if you're just off somewhere snowy come back and post a snow report of your own and we'll all love you very much

Thinking of having a lesson when we go in January - haven't had one for 25 years so wouldn't do any harm Laughing Goal as a result is to get down a black looking as in control/calm as I do on a red!

Goal 1 recover from the shoulder surgery which has woken me up at 4am today (and many mornings in the last 2 months Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad ). Laax in Jan, Saas Fee in April Very Happy
Goal 2 must get comfy with more airtime....spent hours and many calories last March trying to land some 3's, without much success (a couple of efforts might have been 300's!! Embarassed )
Goal 3 ride a rainbow rail (or find one that's only a couple of feet high!!). They look so easy in the pics and so scarey in real life. Sorry. I'm a bit chicken. Embarassed I might not be brave, but I am persistant rolling eyes Laughing
