Another day on the slopes! This time in the sun.

Out of all the animals on earth, I’d say humans have come up with the most elaborate and bizarre methods to accomplish the verb “play.” I’d also say skiing and snowboarding are such examples. Fancy equipment on your feet and mechanical chairs galore!

Emilio just shared his skiing adventures. So I also decided to write a report of my day at the slopes yesterday, my first sunny one all year! This post is much less informative, but if you’ve never gone skiing or snowboarding, it might help convince you to try! Minus the part where I talk about the things I lost…

Snowboarding

I went snowboarding for the first time this week.  At Mt. St. Saveur I got a lesson from a great teacher.  Now that I’ve got the basics down, how am I going to put it all together?

My worry is that I can only go about once a week, and that maybe I’ll forget how to do the things learned during that week.

Actually I’m not too worried, it’s just that time on the hill is precious and I don’t want to waste it.

So, after sideslipping and a little traversing what’s next?  Traversing is still hard for me.  I figure I’ve got one more day of hard slogging and then it should get a bit easier.

But I’m sick of being on the bunny hill.  I think I’ve had enough of that.
