    Rest up.

    What's bumming me out is the fact that the mountain is closed through Thursday. It seems like they're already jumping into late season touch and go mode. Those bumps are so perfect right now and the mountain is buried in snow. I hope we get lift serviced through March at least.

    I ski double black diamonds.

    I will have the full video with full runs out in a couple days. I was kind of hard to capture so much action in three minutes without cutting runs short.

    Completely understandable. I didn't mean that as a critique of your editing skills at all. Thanks so much for all the work you put into this!

    Well, that's because I was so damn slow! No, actually Pat skis bumps much faster (& more gracefully) than I do. I think the left side was faster speed wise but it had that ice patch before the kicker & the left kicker seemed to launch people further down than the right one. Overall, the 2 courses were about even I think.

    but then i remembered what jarrod kept telling us. this was for fun and anyone taking it too seriously was going to be DQ'd.
    No problem, Pat. I didn't take it as bitching or having the wrong attitude. Just post-competition reflection & analysis. I would have had the same attitude you did. A little upset at the outcome & how it might have been different but not a big deal in the overall scheme of things.

    Yes. Thank you again, Randi! Not only for the video and editing, but your enthusiasm!

    BTW, just got a nice Email from Chris who's been following this thread. He's talking all feedback into account. In fact, next year they are considering two comps, perhaps late January and again mid-March! I thanked him profusely for keeping the mogul experience alive at Ski Sundown. Again, we are very lucky to have such a radical little hill right in our backyards!

    I would encourage everyone that went yesterday to pop them an Email and thank them as well:

    chris@skisundown.com
    jarrod@skisundown.com
    customerservice@skisundown.com

    BTW, it should also be noted that Sundown offered some pretty nice prizes to the top 4 finishers in each category - everything from goggles and boot bags to snowboards and skis!

    Hope we don't see you here: http://forums.alpinezone.com/25510-got-acl.html

    I was in denial for about a week until I finally made a drs appt.

    I've blown out 2 acls so i know what it feels like. I seriously doubt i did that and i did manage to take 2 more runs after my incident. I just caught way too much air and landed really really hard on my last run against MrMagic. I think i just have an impact bruise, if thats such a thing.

    If i cant ski by friday, i will make a drs appt. i'm going to sugarbush regardless. i'll ski groomers and drink some beers. then deal with it after that.
