  1. I'm a 51yr old male looking for a carving coach or camp or just fun meet up, I open to a formal meet up anywhere in NA for a few days. I live in Toronto but willing to consider locations for few days (2-4) of casual coaching/riding on some nice big groomers to better learn on. I've only been riding 4 years largely all self taught and feel I've maxed out and need someone to help me focus on the next level, I can do basic carves able to ride mid size mountains but just need nice big groomers and coaching on how to get down/lower and perform solid smooth carves, maybe some video (I have GP8). I'm not into all the tech specs etc just want to carve but willing to change/improve my setup with proper technical advice. Its hard to learn on low quality 500 foot hills in Ontario with few to learn from. Ideally looking for March 13-20 2020 but would consider alternate dates for the right experience in advance or after that date. I'm riding 169 F2 Silberfeil with F2 stepin's and Deeluxe boots, FrontF 55 degrees and rearF 48 degrees, 182lbs, 5,9. Looking for casual coaching by an experienced rider. Please contact me if interested with rates and ideas to consider if interested. Included links some of my videos to see my skills. https://youtu.be/6qHY16-izvo https://youtu.be/imOzWohA_Po
  2. I ride at a small hill called brimecombe.ca aka the old Oshawa ski club most sat and sundays. I’m a newbie of 3yrs and mostly learned via grit and grind on my own. Looking for my own coach as well to move to the next level. I’m currently learning from a few 12yr olds who are provincial champs....yah go figure lol. Happy to teach whatever I can and know if you are out that way. There are a few folks aka less then on one hand that board on most hills in ont each weekend, ask the local snowboard and ski instructors which runs they mostly hang out on and chase them down. I hear a good group hangs at MSLM but never meet them. Go in the morning when the hills are groomed as that’s when most like to carve. It’s a lot of trial and error unless you can find a coach. sites that may help get you going. http://www.alpinecarving.com/ Lots of good reading, bit dated but still good. for ew equipment when ready check out yyzcanuck.ca in Toronto. Look on youtube under alpine boarding or carving and watch as many videos as you can find. Ben from Russia below is all video with no words but helpful as he takes you from beginning turns to carving.
  3. Sorry not able to make it but keep posting as maybe another day :) I generally ride weekends at a small hill called https://www.brimacombe.ca/ just outside Toronto not ideal but we take what we can get around here :) Cheers
