I had friday off so decided to give snowboarding a try. It was in the 60s (might have gotten to 70s-- not sure) where I was in VT and very sunny. It was a lot of fun! Normally, I hate skiing in slush and really soft spring conditions because I get so tossed around tripped up by water/slush puddles. But I found I actually enjoyed snowboarding under these conditions. The snow was really soft for all my falls (and there were many), but the board just zipped right through the soft snow and puddles and I didn't feel like I was getting bounced around. I found that heelside edge and turns are easier for me than toe side, but by the end of the day I could link turns on the easier trails and could turn on steeper stuff but had difficulty linking the turns together. It's definitely something I want to practice more (it won't replace skiing for me, but is something else fun to work on). I think it would help to have my own boots though----I tried on a couple pairs of rentals before picking one, but I have low volume foot and I was getting heel lift in the boot for toe side turns, so it would probably improve the experience if I had better fitting boots. I don't think I'm going to get any more days out this year and snow is going fast with the temperatures we are having-- but hopefully I won't have to start completely from scratch next year and I will remember everything I learned and the feel etc!
