My husband is a pretty awesome snowboarder and has been teaching my boys. He makes it look so easy! A few years ago I decided to try it. I signed up for a lesson at a local resort. At the time, I was in the best shape of my life as a marathon runner, but learning to snowboard kicked my butt! It was a harder workout than an 18-mile run!
I did a bit of skiing as a teen, but It's been 18 years since I last went skiing. So when we decided to take the family to Wolf Mountain for a night of family snowboarding/skiing, I was a bit apprehensive about getting back out on the snow. It's just like riding a bike, though. It came right back to me and it was a lot of fun! Here's a pic of my older daughter and I freezing our butts off.
One last picture-here's the progress on our house. It's so exciting to see walls going up!
