Une bien belle journée de poudreuse à @risoullabellemontagne ! 😍 ❄️
Malgré le nombre incalculable de vacanciers sur le domaine, j’ai quand même pu faire énormément de première trace durant tout la journée ! 🙏🏻 ⛷
La saison recommence tout doucement à repartir de plus belle avec de la neige qui arrive encore ces prochains jours ! ❄️
Je te partagerai tout ça sans hésitation ! 💪🏻

Old man in the park. Made a real effort this year to get back to booters and jibs. I lived for park laps when I was younger and could bounce off the ground still in one piece. As I got older, and a few good injuries later, I found myself reserved, safe, and just cruising turns and little jumps. But I learned the fear of injury, playing it safe and telling myself “I’m too old for this” was more damaging to my mental and physical state than just getting after it and trying bigger things. I knew what I was before, and constantly compared myself to the younger version. I let the fear and negative outlook on my current age and resilience play way too big of a role on my abilities. It was so hindering and my “skills” were dulling fast. My head and body was no better off, and both actually got worse. I think some people need the feeling that comes from pushing themselves and seeing what they are capable of. I’m not the same “athlete” I was in my twenties, but I’m definitely better in many other ways. After committing to pushing myself this season, and even taking some good falls, my riding all around feels strong, I feel strong, and I finally feel confident on any terrain or feature again. I’m not saying I’m back to big spins, inverts or massive rails but I feel awesome about the level of riding I get to enjoy. Age ain’t nothing but a number (and knee, elbow, wrist and back pain ; )
Thanks for the awesome little video @iambrittanybowen ! You’re sooooo dang good already! #ageaintnothingbutanumber#powderhorn#skipowderhorn
