Woohoo!  After a year of riding switch consistently, I finally felt comfortable enough to do some 180s switch.  All I can say is that ollie-ing switch is like a totally different beast!  Maybe HCSC can teach me how to tame it.  Down boy!

Home Resort:
Jiminy Peak

Years Snowboarding:
3-ish, had to take a year off due to being pregnant :-)

Average number of days Snowboarding each year:
5-10

Favorite Snowboard Setup: (Board & Binding)
I currently have a Morrow Wildflower with Morrow Lotus bindings, not the best but it works for me!!

Favorite Snowboard Trick:
falling's not really considered a trick....

Your Best Experience Snowboarding:
My best experience snowboarding was a couple weeks ago. My husband and I clipped boards and fell getting off the left the day before and it kind of killed my confidence the next day. When we went back to the mountain, I had a really good time getting my turns dialed and had no problem getting off the lift. The reason why it was the best day ever is because my husband ended up falling off the lift that day and I didn't the whole day. He's been snowboarding for 15 years so it helped me see someone mess up, no matter how good they are.

What makes you most want to go to HCSC this Summer:
I really want to go to HCSC for one reason. My husband and I were planning to move out to Colorado a few years ago and then make a trip to HCSC but as fate would have it, I got pregnant. I ended up missing a whole season of boarding and these last two years have made me feel like I had to learn everything all over again. I think a session at HCSC would help me progress my riding to a whole different level that would take me another season or two to accomplish.

Why should you win the HCSC Summer Camp Session:
I should win a session at HCSC because it's something I wouldn't be able to do on my own. I'm not able to come up with the funds to make a trip on my own. I also don't have many resources on the east coast to be in the presence of pro and am riders as well as coaches that can guide me through what I need to learn. Also, I feel like a camp like HCSC could be am amazing opportunity for someone such as myself that needs it. I'm not at a level of hitting kickers and riding rails like other riders so having te chance to bring myself one step closer would be something I definitely wouldn't take for granted.

What is your biggest snowboard goal/dream:
My biggest snowboard goal is to progress my riding and learn more about the industry. I'm starting to dive more into writing and one day I would love to make a career out of it.

To all the dudes who went to Steamboat, CO and communicated to me via chat LOL, text messaging, or verbally Sleepy that I totally missed out on the CO snow, crazy cocktail party, and steamy steamy hottub, I just wanted to post what YOU guys missed out here in Tahoe:

1. EPIC EPIC STORMS.  Even Squaw's Broken Arrow was covered, and full of yummy stashes of untouched snow.  I felt that floating, weightless feeling in deep powder for the first time...Smile
 
Broken Arrow, Squaw Valley
 
 
2. I must admit, although it is VERY difficult to beat your hottub-sausage-fest, you boys were missing out on epic-days-in-tahoe followed by the hottub-Jiggly-fest.
 
 
** Please post pics/videos of Steamboat hottub to compare **  Clap

What makes you most want to go to HCSC this Summer: Living in Ohio and snowboarding is not too great to begin with due to the excessively long off season and lack of real hills. However, the reason I want to go so bad is to make up for my lost season this year. First week of my home resort opening up and my 4th time out this season I took a nasty spill and fractured my spine. On the 17th of December we were on our last run of the night, finishing up with some fun in the park. I went down first and something went wrong, obviously, I wasn’t really “in it” and yeah…the rest is history. The potential for paralysis was relatively high so I had to be transferred to a trauma center and undergo surgery in order to stabilize the vertebrae. 5 days in the hospital, 4 x-rays, 3 cat scans, 2 ambulance rides, 1 surgery and my season is over. I now have 7 huge pieces of metal in my back and a 6 inch scar down my spine. So, yeah, sorry for the lengthiness, I just hope it explains my lack of photo and video posting since I won’t really have any opportunity to be taking/making them.

 
Holy Cow!  I'm glad you're "all right."  I guess its all relative.  I dislocated my left shoulder and broke my arm at the same time 2 years ago after riding really fast and catching an edge.  That incidence definitely shattered my confidence in snowboarding. Were you attempting a jump? I highly recommend armor. It makes you look bulky under snowboarding clothes and it certainly constricts your movement to a certain degree, but it has definitely saved me from some bad spills.

Thanks! I am sorry about your shoulder/arm, that sucks. Yeah, I was trying a jump, people who saw it say it looked like I was trying a back flip and didn't follow through enough if you can imagine that. I wish I could say i was good enough to make a mistake like that. However, I am not and I am not going to lie about my skills. I was just trying a new, but not very well groomed jump (with a spine on top), nothing new, pretty simple, but I don't really remember much after that! It's just frustrating to know it was so simple. The armor sounds like a great idea mostly for my first time back on the slopes, i sure it would make me feel more confident.


Here are some pictures from my accident. I know that they don't really applying to the whole snowboarding theme but they are semi relevant in my situation.
 in the hospital with my friends, I had to lie like that on my back for 3 days straight before surgery.
my back after surgery, still pretty swollen but the scar looks so cool!

my x-rays after surgery


last year - it's old but since no new ones are coming I figure I should post it

Wow Emily!  That is impressive!  My friend had a very similar surgery after skiing backwards into a snow-blower.  OK, here is my X-ray of my left arm fracture.  No where as striking as yours, but it sure bothers my rotator cuff muscles still to this day... 

 
 
 
 
On a brighter, cheerier note, this year I decided to liven the post-Xmas period with a Santa-suit...well more like a Mrs. Santa suit.  When adults asked "Where's my present?", I just answered, "No, I'm currently blacked out" or "not on skiis, you won't"  Smile

What makes you most want to go to HCSC this Summer: I really want to start transitioning into te park. Grabbed a seven just for this purpose but no idea even where to start. Would love to learn from the pros.

Home Resort: Seven Springs


Years Snowboarding: This is my first year


Average number of days Snowboarding each year: 20+


Favorite Snowboard Setup: I am riding with the 2010 Burton Bullet with Burton Custom Bindings


Favorite Snowboard Trick: 360


Your Best Experience Snowboarding: I have the best experience snowboarding every time I go. This is my first year snowboarding. The first time I went riding, I did a lot of falling. However, I was determined that I would get the hang of things and make it down the mile long trail without falling. I get better and better every time I go to a resort, and my snow boarding experience gets better and better every time I go.


What makes you most want to go to HCSC this Summer: I want to go to HCSC this summer because I have not enjoyed anything as much as I enjoy snowboarding. I was a skier in high school. I played division I football in college, and my skiing was put on hold. I was not able to go skiing because my coaches did not want me to potentially get hurt. I just finished my senior year of football & I can finally go back to the mountain. Now, instead of skiing, I find myself snowboarding. My last two years of my career I had the worst experience playing division I college football. Now it is finally over, and I have been enjoying every second I spend snowboarding. I would really love to go to HCSC this summer so I can become a better snowboarder.


Why should you win the HCSC Summer Camp Session: I feel that I should win the HCSC Summer Camp Session because I would get a lot out of the camp. I would take home a lot of the wisdom and advice that I would learn at camp. My coaches always described me as a "sponge". They said that I absorbed everything they were coaching me. Being a beginner at snowboarding and having the charactristic of a "sponge", I know that if I won the HCSC Summer Camp Session, I would come back a much better snowboarder.


What is your biggest snowboard goal/dream: My biggest snowboard goal is to win a contest. I would love to be able to do tricks all the way down a half pipe and take home first place. I would love to build a solid foundation of snowboarding mechanics and be able to work on them every time I go riding.

I took a bunch of pictures this weekend, rode fri-sun, but when i was uploading to gmail my HD crashed and everything is reverted back to last week Ouch, and I deleted the pics off my camera once they were loaded onto iphoto. I did my first rails ever this year, first in the prog park and then in the big boys park, and an ollie-on. Anyways, one did make it onto the uploader, so here is my lame box ride. Confused

Clap    Jigglypuff's report on Seven Springs, PA   Clap
 
I had a wonderful week in Pittsburgh, PA for work, but had enough down time to enjoy Pitt's famous Primanti Bros sandwich (trucker style) and the O's hotdogs and fries.  I also rode Seven Springs for two days and had a great time.
 
 
What they lacked in elevation, they more than made up with the most snow-blower machines per square feet I have ever seen.  And lifts do not close until 10pm...sweeeet.  Since there were so many snowblowers, there was good coverage and the snow was soft on top of hard-packed.
 
The parks were sick.  I was impressed with the wide variety of easy to difficult level jibs and jumps.
 
 
Seven Springs has Transworld Snowboard's #1 Superpipe on the east coast.  I rode the 18-foot monster for 5 hours, and yes, it was cut really well and had the perfect amount of grip (not too icy) from 12pm to 2pm.  There was a series of 20'/40'/70' jumps running parallel to it.
 
 
What I loved most about the Pittsburgh area were the people - so genuinely nice, laid back, and helpful!   Big smile   Park etiquette was at it's best (except for this 4 year-old chic on skis - I'll get you back someday Angry).  They are also very proud of their Steelers, and who wouldn't be? They kick butt.
 
 
Here is one of my pipe runs.  My goal was to reach the lip!  Hopefully, I will be able to ride past the lip by next season.
 
 
I got some memorable bruises ("left jug") that I'll post up later...stay tuned...

Contest Entry Info:
Be thorough in your entry information. You only need to submit the entry info in your first thread post. 

Sierra User Name:
gofeman

Home Resort:
Dartmouth Skiway and Whaleback

Years Snowboarding:
4

Average number of days Snowboarding each year:

Almost everyday on my home built setup.
150 days on the slopes.

Favorite Snowboard Setup: (Board & Binding)

Hmmm, thoughy.

Rome Artifact with Rome 390's or Ride DH2 with Burton Missions

Favorite Snowboard Trick:

Floating a backside 180 melon.

Your Best Experience Snowboarding:

Feb 12 2009, New England got pounded. We had a snowday in school and me and my buds went shreding, there was over 15 inches on the ground and still coming. The drive that usually takes us 15 minutes, took us 40. We were actually the only ones on the mountain. Even though our home mountain is tiny, we still had a blast. We got first tracks on every trail and glade. I learned how to front flip that day.


What makes you most want to go to HCSC this Summer:

Learn new tricks, progress, meet new people, travel out west (which I have never done), and have a blast.

Why should you win the HCSC Summer Camp Session:

Snowboarding is my life. Summer is the worst season because I can't snowboard. If I could win this, I'd have a trip to paradise in the middle of boredom.
I'm at a point in snowboarding when I need help progressing. I need help with learning new tricks and the motivation to try new stuff. I've never been out west, something I've been wanting to do for a long long time.

What is your biggest snowboard goal/dream: 

Get better at shreding to a point where I can compete. Have some kind of job that relates to this holy sport, meet new people while doing it and help others start shredding.

I had an awesome Tahoe birthday weekend!!  Thanks to Fifty Fifty Brewing for accomodating us and serving the delicious rasberry chocolate cake!  From the Sierra crew were: Phil, giftedhands, stass, and E$.  I couldn't get HGH drunk enough (apparently, beer was not the right way to go if drunkedness was my endpoint), so he didn't show off those "back abs," or the dancing pecs <sigh>  Cry   I'll get you next time, Gadget....next time....
 
Giftedhands did impress us, however, with his big-burger eating skills.  So attractive...and gifted...Embarrassed
 
 
Phil impressed me with his British-style lap dancing...
 
 
Stass impressed me with her mad french fry eating skillz which was perfectly balanced on her broken arm...
 
 
and THEY were impressed with my knife-cutting abilities.  Phil was shuttering in terror...
 
 
This thread is about snowboarding, so I guess I should post a snowboarding video from this past weekend.  I had a lot of firsts this weekend, including my first beer, my first rock drops, but what I prized the most were my first frontside 360s.  Maybe it was the beer, or Phil's British lap dance, I dunno, but I finally got the Frontside 3!!!  They're not great, but I'll keep working on the height and the "floatiness."  Of course, if you have any pointers, send me a PM!  Clap

Home Resort:

Arizona Snowbowl (yes, we get snow in Arizona)


Years Snowboarding: 3 years


Average number of days Snowboarding each year:

about 15 to 20


Favorite Snowboard Setup: (Board & Binding)

I like my Burton Condom(154) with purple and orange Cartels


Favorite Snowboard Trick:

Some people may not get this, but I love to do ollies. I think it's pretty damn fun to just take runs and try to find stuff to ollie off of, like get getting speed down the run so you can ollie off the side of the catwalk into the steep run going into the trees. Who doesn't like to get alittle speed and then ollie over a big roller and land near the bottom? Maybe I like to ollie so much since I skateboard too.


Your Best Experience Snowboarding:

My best snowboard experience happened just this year when we finally got to take a trip to Northstar at Tahoe and some other resorts right around there. We made the drive from here in AZ and the long hours on the road were totally worth it. It's pretty crazy going from a smaller resort like Snowbowl to a huge resort that has everything you could want to ride. I couldn't believe how much I actually was able to progress in the park in just a week. Now I want to go ride a pipe again, but can't since I live in AZ, which is a bummer. There is nothing better than being able to ride a major resort and I'll never forget it.


What makes you most want to go to HCSC this Summer:

I want to go to HCSC to progress and be able to ride during the summer. For two years I've been wanting to go because the camp looks like so much fun and I seriously can't stop watching the podcasts cause they're just so awesome! Just from talking to people and seeing videos, I feel that I could drastically improve my riding and even skating by going to camp. They have everything I could dream of riding there and unlike Snowbowl, I could get help from some really good shredders whether it be in the park or pipe. I also believe high cascade would help my riding because I would be able to continue riding in the summer and I wouldn't have such a long waiting period from spring to january to start riding again. It would be like I'm bridging the gap and no tricks would have to be relearned. I also would like to get in on some of those dodgeball fights.


Why should you win the HCSC Summer Camp Session: I should win because there's no way I would let that sessions go to waste. I would make the most of my time there and I'm very eager to learn. This trip would never be forgotten. We don't have that much money and since we made the miracle trip to Northstar, which my Grandma had to mostly pay for, there no way I could go anywhere out of state.


What is your biggest snowboard goal/dream: My biggest snowboard dream is just to be the guy at the resort that can shred everything. We all know that one guy at our local resort that isn't sponsored, but can seriously throw down and we look for him while we're riding up the lift just to see what he's going to do or maybe to get some trick inspiration. I think that would be the coolest thing ever to be able to shred anything without even trying.


I'm on the right ->










There will be more photos/videos when I can get someone to film.

Its been like over a week since I've posted, OMG!  Big smile
 
Unfortunately, I have no new silly photos of Phil, HGH, or Stass, but I do plan on visiting the English Embassy soon.
 
I've started venturing into rock dropping territory.  I think my training in the park with 10-20 ft jumps have given me the courage and skills to drop some rocks.  I won't post the first few videos because they're agonizing to watch Dead -- lots of hesitation, second-guessing, rock-scratching-base, etc., so I'm showing the least agonizing one. 
 
 
Now that my frontside 3's are more consistent, I figured it was time to balance the scale with backside 3's.....Confused......but I'm not quite there yet.  Here's video of my attempt.  I do a backside 1 to get psyched up, then an attempted backside 3 on the second jump (more like a 270).  I'll get it someday!!  PM me with pointers!

Abbie....that is AMAZING!!  And you got major air too.  Airjesse and I attempted backflips as well today...
 
 
 
...hehe  LOL  OK, I'm joking...we could barely see anything in the park with the poor visibility.  I demoed a Sierra Snowboard V-spot 147cm, and it was so poppy and buttery that I was content just ditzing around the groomers  :)   Thanks Phil! Probably a great board for your backcountry and urban jibs!

Just got back this weekend form riding with Thu (jugglypuff) Saturday and Squaw and Phil (The English Butler), Dan (Moldygiraffe), and Nyle (giftedhands) Sunday at Northstar. Posted three features from our last park run at The Star and I'm super stoked because I did my first rainbow box today (excuse the snow on my butt :p)



Last weekend did my first trip into the pipe at Sierra with Rose (rosebud) and it wasn't so great, but that's ok :D



AIRSPEED! yes.

Sierra User Name:
benjiradio



Years Snowboarding:
12



Average number of days Snowboarding each year:
45-50



Favorite Snowboard Setup: (Board & Binding)
154cm Signal Park Rocker
Rome 390


Favorite Snowboard Trick:
Back 5
Nose press 180 off
Mctwist - wall or pipe (50% landing, but love doing it...no local pipe)


Your Best Experience Snowboarding:
My best riding experiences were my trips to Vail and then Loveland & A. basin....buuuttt my best experience was going to Holiday Valley with a group of 8 friends in one room to save money.  It was ridiculous....Great riding...Superpipe of course.....and therefore one of the most fun weekends I have had on a snowboard trip.  And I've had more than can I remember.


What makes you most want to go to HCSC this Summer:
I've never had any official park training.  I know what I know from watching others and trial and error.  2 bad broken bones to prove that.  Other than that, I would kill to ride in the summer and progress my riding.


Why should you win the HCSC Summer Camp Session:
Because I didn't win the trip to Washington...LOL

But really I should win because I would give 110% when given an opportunity like this.  Put the nerves and BS aside and progress.  I wouldn't be afraid to try new things or change/tweak the way I'm currently doing something.  I take direction and coaching very well and get along with everyone I meet.


What is your biggest snowboard goal/dream: 

1.
Win a superpipe contest of anykind.
2. Help change our "worst in Ohio" park.
3.
Enter our Big Air contest next season.
