My First Terrain Park

On Saturday Eliana and I went skiing at Bridger Bowl.  The jumps she normally likes to hit weren't in very good shape, so I suggested we go to the terrain park.

I didn't bother to suggest to her that she should be fearful on her first trip there.  Instead I taught her basic terrain park etiquette, e.g. don't stand under a jump, get up quickly if you miss the landing, etc.

She had a blast.  She's got an impressively good sense of how fast she should hit jumps to stay within her comfort zone.

Unfortunately, she's getting harder to impress as she gets older.  My sorry attempts to huck moderate air no longer leave her exclaiming "That was awesome!" and I've nearly reached the limits of my comfort zone.
