So as it turns out, I don't suck at snowboarding as much as I thought! My first snowboarding experience this year (after 3...possibly 4 empty seasons) was in Colorado with my childhood best friend (Casey Ritchie), her boyfriend, and her family right after Christmas in California. I ended up renting a board and boots, after pouting about my perfectly good board and boots at home. I didn't want to spend the $75 each way on my 3 leg flight just for one day of fun. Good thing for me because I had the best snow experience of my life and saved a ton of money!
Anyways...Second snowboarding experience was the very next week on New Year's Day with Tyler, his parents, and his sister Natalie. I have NEVER been so embarrassed in all my life...doning my very own board/boots I proceeded to :
*Collide with a skier in front of my boyfriend's mother
*Get yelled at by the skier's husband in front of boyfriend's mother
*Fall every few yards so boyfriend's family had to wait after every run for me
*Get stuck on a straight away
*Have family wait for me after trying to change stance 3 times on board with no improvement after each one
*Get so frustrated that I don't want to talk to anyone and am silent Joe on lift with Boyfriend's mother
*Get separated from boyfriend and family for much too long because taking incorrect lift and getting lost. Note: left cell phone in car
*FALL, FALL, FALL
*catch an, EDGE, EDGE, EDGE
My body ached and groaned at me for a good two and a half weeks...So after that experience I was convinced that it was not me it was my board. My friend Heather Bird (Sundance instructor and stunningly hot board bunnie) took me to Board of Provo to get me set up with new gear...board, bindings, and sexy new goggles. Safe to say it changed my life...I went to Brighton a few weeks ago with my friend Jennie from work and had a fabulous time. Proud to also say I went off a baby jump and stuck it! This post is dedicated to the Bruford family...I apologize... can't wait for Natalie to come back for Spring Break to see the new me. :)
