Snowboarding Trip

I went to Winter Park Colorado mid December for my first ever snowboarding trip.  In my head this is what I was going to look like snowboarding.

 

Total fail! I took a lesson but the only thing I learned on my first day was how to fall on my booty.  I got really good at spotting the ultra fluffy spots and tried to land on those areas as much as possible.  Needless to say I ended up with purple/blue bruises all over (I have video that I will post later).  There was this area where kids where learning to ski/snowboard . . . yeah that’s basically where I stayed the second day.  There was no way I was going down that huge mountain again.  Okay it wasn’t really huge but in my eyes (after rolling the whole way down the day before) it was ginormous. I mean really it was so sad, there were 5 year olds blazing past me like it was nothing. It was pretty cool watching them. I want to be awesome too!!!

If you’re wondering why I didn’t try skiing the answer is pretty simple. I’m hard headed. I was only there 3 days but I do intend on going back next December (unless I can find snow after April). For now I can cross snowboarding of my bucket list.
