My name is Jibran, I have been skiing for 9 years and I am a bit of a junkie. I have passes at whistler and Seymour. I'm open to going up with any number of skiers or riders, and sometimes I can help out and take a passenger, gas help appreciated.
According to those signs and my bindings I'm an expert. I'll go everywhere and drop basically anything you would, and throw some spins in the park. I'll say advanced, because though I'll do expert runs I am not perfect or pro.
I'm 19...and easy to get along with people of any age...in fact I guess I'm a little old at heart.
I love seymour for it's snow, park, and back country. Gotta pick Sun Peaks though...mmmmm....Gils...
POW POW POWWWW, followed by groomers or whatever gets me to the park if the POW isn't that available.
... a pass this year to learn a good technique, but in the spring, I'll get the full AT gear and next year, I'll be doing mostly back-country, get avalance safety training with the BCMC, etc. But to learn some proper technique, I think you need a ton of milage and you don't get enough in backcountry.

No matter what I do I stay on my feet (not always a beautiful way though lol). Backcountry: this is actually my end goal. I got...
Well, you are definitely an expert, while I am not. I skied from 2 to 17 year old in the Alps and I am confortable in any terrain as long as I don't have to drop (never learnt to do that, but I want to learn it now). Problem is that I didn't take lessons after the age of 7 or 8 and my style is really bad. Then I stopped for 14 years (I'm older than you lol) and am getting back to it this year. I can still ski anywhere: it came back immediately, but I now want to learn a proper style and to do...
