How to Stop Upper Limiting (aka Self-Sabotage)

Greetings from Vermont! Today I have a snow filled video comin’ your way ;)

One day while we were on the chairlift together, I asked him if he was scared to snowboard again after the accident? He shook his head side to side mulling the question over and then finally said, “I just got back on my board and started riding again. Then I was fine.”
