So, I have been putting off snowboarding since it became cool years ago, mainly because I thought I was the only one who hadn't tried it yet and I didn't want to make anyone stay back with me the entire day on the bunny hill when they could have been having fun.
Well, my husband has been doing it a while...the P-towne posse apparently went every weekend in high school.

Jason's whife Chelsea and Stephen's girlfriend Kelly hadn't done it either so it was perfect. Bachelor was absolutely gorgeous but holy crap do they rip you off. During the off season, which we luckily hit, it's $56. During Christmas break it's $65!! If you have to rent gear you're looking at another $40. We borrowed or brought our own gear so that helped a little. We girls got our free lessons at Bachelor and sucked horribly while the guys went and played on the halfpipe and did backflips.
They came back and helped us with technique and rode down (rather slowly) with us, teaching us along the way. It was actually a lot of fun. It took a little bit to get the carving thing down but I got the hang of it. Every muscle in my body, however was screaming the next day. I think that was due in part to playing indoor soccer immediately after a full day of snowboarding. Jim played goalie and it might have been the funniest thing I've ever seen (full bright orange Beaver sweatsuit). He was a natural. I'll get pictures!
