Final reflections

 Sorry I let you down. If your reading this your probably thinking, " Kaedyn must've not finished." That is very true.  As you might know, my risk was attempting to make a 360 or helicopter on my skis. Necessary terrain parks at Winter park were not open. The only terrain park that I know of was open was at Copper and the only thing there was a halfpipe. This did tech me some things though. First off risk taking can be difficult in many different ways. This also thought me that I should just sometimes wing it  because maybe if i did that I would've made on 360, who knows, even if I hurt myself, that's all part of risk taking. I also did learn something from my interview over text message. He said I should hurt the jump, as I'm getting ready to pop of the jump he said to do a pie position which is winding up and I pop just twist around and look for my landing. I will provide you with two videos of me doing some simple tricks on a jump during a ski run or after a run. I can't just leave with nothing to present. Thanks for reading and make sure to comment. Yol have a good night.

Progress

Goals, Fear, and Dreams


 This process brings me a fear of breaking a bone again. During the first practice run of a freestyle mogul competition, and went of the jump crashed with my skis , goggles, and helmet detached from my body. I almost did a yard sale except I didn't loose my poles.During this accident my thumb broke on the mogul course on the run called Parkway. My goal is to succeed past my goal of accomplishing a 360(helicopter) on my skis and to start learning a 540. My dream though is something that happens after succeeding my goal. It's small but can lead up to something big. Winning first place in a ski comp which could lead up to future winning and then go to the Olympics and world championships of freestyle mogul skiing.
