I did something dumb to one of my park skis last week and after being really salty and bitchy about having to get a new pair of skis...I got a new pair of skis. Holiday weekend is over so I've finally got time to get some bindings on these guys.
I'm beat today, but in a good way. I worked with a 10 year old kid all morning on bumps and in trees. In the afternoon he said he wanted to do a run or two through the terrain park, though it wasn't his favorite place on the mountain. "A run or two" turned into the entire afternoon lapping our small jump line. Little buddy was *so* excited; he got down 180s, tail grabs, and safety grabs (which, for whatever reason were far more daunting to him than 180s or anything else we had done throughout the day??) I planned on hibernating when I got home, but instead I somehow found myself sledding next door with my little sister and the 7 year old neighbor girl.
If you follow me for dead stuff and art, things will be back to normal next month.
February-March are going to be busy for me, but I'm pretty excited.
This weeks project- building a small room to place my cnc mill in. As you can see I was pretty scrappy with the build out ... all of the wood came from packaging/crating. Hey it gets the job done! I would love to say that I did this for some good reason like recycling and cutting down on waste... the truth is I have been a ski bum most of my life- and I grew up in Ohio where I learned some Midwest hillbilly skills like dumpster diving and fixing things with duct tape ! 😁 Looking forward to finishing out this project over next couple days and catching up on milling ski cores. #skiing#skiertrash#dumpsterdiving#hillbilly#makersofinstagram#cnc#construction
