I can do double blacks / glades comfortably, but I'm still a beginner at doing tricks or snow park stuff. <img src="https://docs.monadical.com/uploads/3f292f02-d1dd-4805-96a7-18cef4ecdcf8.jpeg" style="max-width: 250px; border-radius: 7px;box-shadow: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.2) 0px 4px 12px; margin: 10px;"/> <img src="https://docs.monadical.com/uploads/90fc6c4d-120c-4c8b-8280-011e8dd7c90e.jpeg" style="max-width: 210px; margin: 10px; float: right; border-radius: 7px;box-shadow: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.2) 0px 4px 12px;"/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <br/> <img src="https://docs.monadical.com/uploads/0d6f16b5-c6a5-4115-ab38-ba0e0c6d95dd.jpeg" style="max-width: 300px; float: right; border-radius: 7px;box-shadow: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.2) 0px 4px 12px;"/> ## ⛷️ Skiing Beginner level, I can make it down blacks safely and comfortably but not elegantly. <br/><br/> ## ⛸️ Ice Skating I played ice hokey and roller hockey growing up, and am a ~decent ice skater today still. <br/> ## [πŸ₯Ύ Mountaineering](https://docs.monadical.com/s/climbing-journal#Mountaineering-Photos) I'm a beginner at mountaineering. I've only hiked or crampon'ed above >14,000ft three times: Mt. Shasta, Paramo Del Sol in Colombia, and the Tiger Leaping Gorge plateau in China. *For more, see my [Climbing & Mountaineering Journal](https://docs.monadical.com/s/climbing-journal#Mountaineering-Photos)...* <img src="https://docs.monadical.com/uploads/dc942479-da7b-4e84-9ba5-da5c2beed1b1.jpeg" style="max-width: 47%; margin: 5px; border-radius: 7px;box-shadow: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.2) 0px 4px 12px;"/><img src="https://docs.monadical.com/uploads/0bb1ff59-782c-4762-95d4-d3f1bbace521.jpeg" style="max-width: 47%; margin: 5px; border-radius: 7px;box-shadow: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.2) 0px 4px 12px;"/> ## [🧊 Ice Climbing](https://docs.monadical.com/s/climbing-journal#Climbing-Photos) I'm a beginner ice climber. I've gone ice and mixed climbing twice in Quebec. I'd love to do more of it in the future because it seems like my kind of endurance sport. *For more, see my [Climbing & Mountaineering Journal](https://docs.monadical.com/s/climbing-journal#Mountaineering-Photos)...* <img src="https://docs.monadical.com/uploads/2997ba1c-4887-47f9-bbf4-975240962761.jpeg" style="max-width: 99%; border-radius: 7px;box-shadow: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.2) 0px 4px 12px;"/> <br/><br/> ## πŸ”οΈ Wish List: Backcountry Avalance Safety I took an avalance safety lecture series on YouTube, but I haven't done in-person training or been certified yet. This is definitely on my bucket list. <br/> <img src="https://docs.monadical.com/uploads/c41b8ae7-104c-47ad-9440-3379b2b95ab2.jpeg" style="max-width: 160px; float: right; border-radius: 7px;box-shadow: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.2) 0px 4px 12px;"/> ## ⛄️ Snowmobiling Intermediate level, I can go >75kmh on groomed trails and handle occasional ice/obstacles, but I haven't done backcountry yet. <br/><br/><br/> ## 🏍️ Wish List: Snow Biking <img src="https://docs.monadical.com/uploads/592afbcc-4250-4181-b797-72e852ba01a8.jpeg" style="max-width: 300px; float: right; border-radius: 7px;box-shadow: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.2) 0px 4px 12px; margin: 10px"/> <br/> I really want to try real snow biking with a modified KTM/Husky 500 that with a caterpillar track for snow. So far I've only managed to ride my DRZ-400 on packed snow with knobby tires (around Quebec in March). <br/><br/><br/><br/> --- <br/> ## Related Journals * **[🏍️ Motorbiking Journal](https://docs.monadical.com/s/motorbikes)** * [🚲 Bicycling Journal](https://docs.monadical.com/s/bicycle-journal) * [🚐 Vanlife Journal](https://docs.monadical.com/s/vanlife-journal) * [πŸ§—β€β™€οΈ Climbing Journal](https://docs.monadical.com/s/climbing-journal) * **[🏁 Racing & Rally Journal](https://docs.monadical.com/s/racing-journal)** - [πŸ‚ Winter Sports Journal](https://docs.monadical.com/s/snow-journal) - [🌊 Water Sports Journal](https://docs.monadical.com/s/water-journal) - [πŸͺ‚ Air Sports Journal](https://docs.monadical.com/s/air-journal) - **[🚁 Drone Flying Journal](https://docs.monadical.com/s/drone-journal)** * **[πŸ—ΊοΈ Guide: Off-Road Route Finding & Navigation With GPX Tracks](https://docs.monadical.com/s/offroad-navigation)** * [🧳 Guide: Adventure Gear & Packing Lists for Off-Road Moto-Camping](https://docs.monadical.com/s/packing-lists) * **[🏍️ Listicle: Motorbikes I've Owned and Enjoyed Using](https://docs.monadical.com/s/motorbikes-used)**
