    359 on skis

    526 on board

    My ski runs looked awful. I was consistently late. The handicaps reflected the difficulty of the courses. The pacesetters were used to courses that steep and turny. Most of us are not. My goal next season is to seek out some courses that are more challenging and try to learn how to negotiate them. For an old guy I did pretty well on the snowboard and in the Race of Champions had the third fastest raw time. Last week I bought a state of the art race board and won with it at the Vertical Challenge Finals (won my age group in skiing too). I'm getting a total knee replacement on May 16th so I'm optimistic for next season. I've never won my age group in Platinum skiing (took 2nd three times) and that's a goal. I've outlived most of my competition in boarding and have won that title 12 times.

    I thought that was you at the start.
    Yes there is a major difference in some of the courses, compared to Okemo.
    In preparation for the Nationals I will ski at Mt Southington, Sundown and try to get to Wachusett Mountain as I have found there courses are tougher.
    Mt Southington after the HS kids race the course is rough and difficult. I miss Tuxedo Ridge Carl used to set difficult courses.
    Might try Hunter but they are not consistent in there hours of operation.

    Good luck with the knee. I found it not too bad many people complain about the pain, but in my case most of the body hurts and the knee is no worse than the other pains.
    It is how much you do the exercises, I worked right down the list of things not to do. Number one was no power tools, first night out of hospital I built a chair raiser so sitting was more comfortable.
    It never hurt or was noticeable when skated or skied and now I am playing hockey and skating at least 4 times a week to be in shape for ski season.

    My wife was told all sorts of horror stories about how I was going to have to be waited on hand and foot. The first morning I was home I walked outside to get my newspapers.
    I only took pain killers when it was sleep time, I find if you work out on meds you never know if you pushing it or not. I drove within a week of getting out of hospital, but I left foot brake.
    Under heavy braking I could feel the right knee sloshing about. If I had to brake hard with right foot would have issues, but no problem with left. But have done it for years.

    If you need anything Pat please let me know.

    If you can make it work.....A great way to deal with courses like we experienced at Squaw Valley is to attend one of the summer camps at Mount Hood. More challenging course sets, usually firm snow and regular coach feedback with daily video analysis. August is a good month to go for some of us "experienced" racers as it is less crowded and more adults and fewer crowds of kids. More one on one attention from coaching staff.

    I did two summers at Mt Hood snow field & at Hurricane ski camp. The conditions were not really tough had tougher conditions in North East. The most difficult part to ski was the dwindling trail to the parking lot.
