jray21 Posted February 9, 2013 Share Posted February 9, 2013 (edited) I absolutely love snowboarding! I've been snowboarding for 23 years now! Man, I'm old. The first day I went, I broke my wrist in about one hour. My instructor was regular and I was goofy foot. For her, toe turns were much easier, so she had me start out trying toe turns on a steep hill of pure ice. Yeah, didn't work very well. After that my dad just taught me and even after just riding for one hour and breaking my wrist I never went skiing again! I just wish it wasn't so expensive! It's as much or more than a day at Disneyland. I used to get Season Passes, but besides not having any money, the last time I got one we had a terrible season and it wasn't worth it anymore to take a chance that the season would be good. Now I just go on the cheaper days and to cheaper places. I do want to try a race 'track' one of these days. Not to participate in a race, but just see how fast I could go. I've topped out at 70 mph on my GPS, and it was a snowy day so I'd really like to see how I'd do on a real track in good weather.
