Watching my segment (I wish there was more to analyze, but that seemed to be a pretty good representation of how I've been skiing); it looks like I was doing a pretty good job of keeping my hands up front, I didn't really notice any dropped hands like I normally do. Looks like I'm still bending at the waist quite a bit though. I felt like I was doing a pretty good job of keeping out of the back seat though, I've been able to do a pretty good job of driving the tips down the back sides. Need to work on tightening up that stance more too.

    Thanks again for the video Greg, it's really useful to analyze my skiing, especially when there's better bumpers skiing the same bumps in the video.
    No problem. And yeah, I'd say your skiing is pretty good.
    I ski double black diamonds.

    Seconded!

    BTW, Chris indicates most of the feedback on the bumps this weekend was almost all positive. There was only one complaint due to the fact that so much of the available terrain was dedicated to bumps. That won't be an issue once more trails open up.

    Now it's time for me to send out the head of the AZ security force, bvibert, to go find that guy. Seriously, some people just don't get it. There are plenty of other ski areas where you can find strictly flat boring vanilla groomers early season. Sundown once again rules it.

    Steve and I hooked up with a younger guy yesterday and did a few runs with him on the bumps. He was just getting started figuring them out, but managed pretty well and was loving it. It's so great to see people keep getting hooked.

    I would say that 'most' other ski areas have strictly flat vanilla groomers right now and will be that way until near Christmas. I've been out twice, closest thing I saw to bumps was about a three dimple line on the side of the trail at Waterville on Saturday. I'm guessing I won't see any at Wildcat this weekend or Sunday River the following weekend.

    I'm glad to hear they received good feedback! There were certainly plenty of people of all abilities skiing the bumps over the weekend.

    There was two full trails of groomers versus the one for bumps and another for terrain features (which could be skied like a groomer if desired)

    Yep. We are extremely fortunate, and trust me, not one of us takes it for granted.

    4+ more months of backyard bumps?!
