Hey Nate, its my reverse psychology.

 

If I never take anything seriously its way easier for me to succeed. I have been doing it since I was racing cars as a teen. Basically at the start of every run, or race I would totally psych myself down to calm me down. As snowbowler says I run at 11 so much that to succeed I actually have learned to tone it down. 

 

If I did not think I had a shot i wouldnt be going but at the sametime I am literally approaching its as if its just another skiing day I do hope they take my humor. Like at my L3 skiing before Gnar was popular, I turned around to the rest of the group including an ETS guy before wedge turns at said to them. "you better watch me, I am going to rip the shit out of these wedge turns". disclaimer those wedge turns did suck but its did make me pretty happy to see the smiles.

I thought this thread was about JameB going for HER Level II, not Josh Matta going for his DCL tryouts.  Josh, are you hijacking this thread?

Yes, if you want to discuss off track points, please start another thread.

 jane,

 at last weeks w /c gathering, i had the pleasure of skiing with a bear who is a L3 at "O" . he's a heck of a skier and i think you know who he is. if he says you are ready - you are.

 additionally, im sure you know several of the other high level ski instructors at our hill, there are 4 instructors that come to mind - who are exceptional. you can reach out to any of them for a quick look.

 good luck........
