I'm just returning to Skiing after taking 17 years off due to my leaving the mountains. When I quite I was a working skier (both PSIA and USSCA Level II), and had skied over 100 days a year for the previous decade.
I just returned to the mountains, I've got a week on the snow this season and I'm back!
I can ski the bulk of the mountain and get down most everything but I feel waaaay uncoordinated and my bump skiing is ugly and really painful (always a weak spot for me anyway ...).
Before anyone asks, yes I've got new gear, including a pair of Stockli Stormriders and boots properly fit by Larry in Boulder ...
I'm looking for clinics in the area that I can attend to get back on top of my boards in the bumps ... and the crud.
Steeps don't seem to be a problem (I've been doing race-tracks off the t-bar into horseshoe bowl at Breck ... and skiing pretty well until it gets really bumpy).
Where I struggle are runs like Mach I at Breck when it's really bumped out ... I get down it, but it ain't pretty and it hurts.
Any ideas from locals ... ?
