I can make S-Turns!

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, the 48 year old mom from Atlanta has learned to snowboard and not only falling leaf or hill slip – I can do s-turns and go from heel to toe in switch turns. I’m very excited. (Even if I am still  spending a lot of time on my bottom!) My next challenge is to learn how to be comfortable and fast on all the narrow, straight, flat (and sometimes uphill) connections between the runs. Not the best laid out mountain in the world, but I do love it because it is just so beautiful.

Didn’t get to take a lesson on my birthday – way too windy and there was a bit of a blizzard that dumped 18 inches of snow on us. But we got out in the afternoon and it was just beautiful – sunshine, blue skies and gorgeous powder. (Also freezing cold, but that’s with 4 layers on, who can tell?)

My son was coaching me and giving me some tips – that’s how I learned to do s-turns. Today I’m going to get him to teach me how to go straight and fast so I can stop hiking, board in hand, over the long, narrow trails. (And getting mad at my poor husband for leading me onto them in the first place! Poor guy – he’s trying so hard.)

Have a great day!
