I tell people to stick with blues until they know they can stop at any speed on any conditions. You see a lot of beginners on blues who can coast to a stop moderate slopes, but on diamonds, when they don't complete a turn and start picking up speed, panic and take a fall. Or try to stop and end up veering off the edge of the trail into the trees. Make sure you can bomb a blue run and jam to a quick stop before venturing onto the diamonds... partly so you don't have to fall to stop, and also so you can stop to avoid those who've fallen in front of you.

Sounds like you're having a great season so far, don't push yourself too much, it's better to just get out and have a good time rather than get hurt. The diamonds will be there next month, and probably next year...
