The freestyle group had afternoon lessons up on Blackcomb. It had snowed about 20 cm Sunday night, so we went searching for powder and ended up riding the Valley of Death and the other creek bed over near Crystal Chair. There was quite a lot of snow down there, so Duncan, Joel and Adam were jumping off some seriously big cliffs. It was pretty impressive to watch. At the end of the day, Lisa and Duncan said that was probably the first time they had ever taken a pro ride group through the creek beds and not had to pull someone out of a hole, ha-ha, now that’s saying something.

That Saturday everyone had a pretty mellow day. In the afternoon I suggested that we all go to the Sk8 Cave and Bounce. The Sk8 Cave is a skateboard shop in Function Junction that has a mini ramp inside. English Joel, Adriaan, Belgium Joel and myself all went for a session at the Sk8 Cave, everyone else went straight to Bounce, we would join them there in about half an hour.

For the next 3 weeks I will be taking a brake from the park and be focusing on Level 2 training. Lisa is going to be instructing us for the next few weeks. She is a Level 3 instructors and a Level 2 evaluator. For the first few days it was only myself and another girl, also called Lisa from Australia, in our Level 2 group. We really focused on our riding to begin with, learning the 4 different types of turns and which terrain pitch they are best suited to (basic carving, intermediate carving, intermediate sliding turns and advanced sliding turns). On Wednesday we were on whistler and went over to Symphony to work on our intermediate sliding turns. It was such a beautiful day, the sun was shining and the sky was so blue.

January felt like a pretty short month for me. Early New Years day I got viciously hit with a bad flu. After two hospital trips, some very awful antibiotics and 10 days stuck in bed, I was finally feeling like myself again.

Week two didn’t have the start that I would have liked. Unfortunately I fell ill with a head cold, with the usual stuffy head, aches and runny nose. I took a few cold and flu tablets in the morning before my lesson but they just put me into a zombie-like state for my lesson. It wasn’t my finest day on the snow to say the least. I felt a bit better on Tuesday but I still took the day off training to give my body time to heal.
