Snowboarding...Lesson 1

So I went to Wachusett today and I purchased the 3 lesson package...I had an absolute BLAST! I'm definitely more into snowboarding! I did ski one time and I didn't fall, but it wasn't very fun. I had the lesson and I practiced a little...I'm definitely going back tomorrow. So far, I'm not too sore...but we'll see what happens tomorrow morning when I wake up. My shoulder is a bit sore...I landed on it pretty hard.

The instructor said that I was 300% better at the end of the lesson...so, there we go...my balance totally sucks. I basically fell every single time. When I went to practice I took the "Magic carpet" up and sort of tumbled/snowboarded down :-p

I did find that I really like the snowboard boots that had the button in the front and you push it in and twist it to tighten it. I'm buying those next season!

Snowboarders are super nice! I met a ton of really nice people there and they said I was doing really well for my first time...but I'm sure they were just being nice.

And yes...I fell a lot...pretty much every time. I have no problem maintaining my balance going down...it's the slowing down and stopping that I'm not very good at yet. I basically have no control.

I'm definitely going to try and go as frequently as possible to get better. It was so funny because when I got to the mountain and saw two of the more complex runs I thought to myself, "There's no way in hell I will ever get on those runs." and as I was leaving it changed to, "I can't wait until I'm better to go on those runs!"

Oh man what a rush going down though...Carving the ice is the most satisfying thing...the sound that it makes and watching it is awesome! I can't wait until tomorrow!
