Wonder how I'll do...

I have this strange feeling I'm gonna be on my ass all day

But those snowboard boots are just soooooo freaking confortable!

Where are you headed? And will you be taking a lesson?

Best boarding idea I've seen: A group of new boarders came to the resort where I work in a learning camp. They were outfited by the organizers with helmets, wrist and elbow pads and HOCKEY PLAYER HIP PADS. You probably can find hip pads at any of those used sports equipment places. These folks said they had no real bruises after three days of falling on the pads.

Well, my day was cut short due to my cousin getting a concussion(He's ok), I cant say I'm too disapointed though.
I started getting the hang of it when the morning was over, getting past the leaning back part was really tough for me. But overall, this is probably the lsat time I'll ever slide down the mountain on anything less that two sticks...

Kneale, I should have brought some of my hockey stuff as I have all the equipment, I don't think I could have fit my hip pads ski pants though. But if you plan on going boarding I STRONGLY suggest bringing some sort of padding, it can save your knees, not to mention your ass.

Well.. back to skiing!
