    • Bikini Run - 4-10-14

      In days of yore, tradition held that the last runs of the season, regardless of weather, was the most stripped, open, and honest run of the year. Instructors, whether they worked or not, would gather and bare their souls and bodies, tearing up the liftline in an effort to usher in the Spring and Summer. Unfortunately, several years ago, the powers that be put a kibosh on this hallowed tradition. On April 10, 2014, we decided it was time to memorialize this tradition, with a slight shift. Hopefully, until we can bring back our traditions of old, this can be the start of something new and wonderful. UNDERWEAR RUN FOREVER!

        During session II of Trek, the Double Diamond Demons tore up the slopes of Eldora. Zoe, Dylan, Parker, and Helena worked on skiing more aggressively, skiing ski first and body second, and tipping before we turn. We shredded bumps, steeps, glades, trees, and jumps on every inch of the mountain we could find. It was an absolute blast! These are a few of the highlights.

          My friend Ryan said he felt bad for me. My first trip to Crested Butte was for a PSIA training clinic. Over the course of the two days, though, he kept running into me in challenging places. These are a few of the salvageable highlights of Extreme Mountain Terrain clinic at Crested Butte March 6 and 7, 2014. And for those of you wondering if any work gets done, listen to Examiner Todd Carroll teach me how to ski better at the end. Music: Big Gigantic - Blue Skies

                The last week of Trek offered a wonderous powder day for the hale and hearty few able to bear the cold, the traffic, and the snows to make it to Eldora. We pushed our limits, starting off by going off the map and delving into the Powderhorn trees. As we adjusted to the deep snows, we took all our work on staying squishy into steeper, tighter, and more entertaining areas of the mountain, from Ambush Trees, to Brian's Glades, to the Brian's Glades Gully and beyond. By the end of the day, we knew how powder could be different and wore big smiles and tired legs back to the front side. In all, it was an excellent day and an excellent session of Trek! Thanks to all the Wooly Mammoth kids and parents for a wonderful and productive six weeks! Music: Blockhead - Breath And Start

                    Over the course of the weekend, Eldora got pounded with snow. One of the benefits of being an instructor is a guided run before the mountain opens on weekends. Instructors are restricted to one portion of one run all together. On Saturday, February 8, 2014, that run was Powderhorn.

                      In Week 5, the Wooly Mammoths practiced skiing aggressively, throwing our bodies down the mountain and off jumps, and exploring steeper terrain and bumps. It was a good snow week too, meaning everything felt easier and smoother. We continued working on staying squishy and relaxed, and it paid dividends. Music: Cee-Lo Green - Bright Lights, Big City
