Special thanks to K2 Snowboarding for sponsoring this post on snowboarding.
One of the great things about Southern California is that you’re never more than an hour or two from pretty much anything you want to do. Beaches, mountains, deserts, it’s all there and readily accessible.
Wanna go to the beach? No problem. Theme parks? Yup. Wanna go learn to ski or snowboard? That can be arranged, too.
Perhaps one of the most unfortunate things is that it took me moving to the Midwest to discover that I wanted to snowboard. You know, that same Midwestern US that doesn’t have mountains, and you have to drive hours to find a resort with a run. Yep, that’d be the one.
A couple years after I moved back here, I made friends with people that liked to do things outside. Yay! Kayaking, fishing, heading out on the lake, hiking…that sort of thing. I figured when the cold weather came, they just went indoors. Boy was I wrong. It was then that I discovered we did, in fact have ski areas in the Midwest. They’re still a little less than convenient, but they exist.
It was also on one of these trips that I went snowboarding for the very first time. Whaaaa???
Yep. Even with great ski resorts at my fingertips, I never took advantage of them, nor learned in my youth. Now, I’m far from an expert, but it was exhilarating. Once I overcame that fear of heights thing. I didn’t realize it would be so fun, what a workout snowboarding really is, – or that I’d be so sore. Sore from bailing, wiping out, and from using muscles I hadn’t used in a long time.
I try to head out at least once a year, either with a group of friends, or just a couple of them.
Do you love to snowboard? On one of my trips I was upgraded to K2 gear, a previous version of the Lime Lite snowboard. Oh, my goodness…the difference was very noticeable.
