The kids are getting bigger and more independent on the mountain (i.e, my daughter can nearly out-ski me and my son refuses to go up there so he stays home), and one of the cool things about this turn of events is that I can get back on my snowboard instead of my skis! I didn’t mind being on skis when they were little and just learning the ropes, but I was never as comfortable or confident on skis as I am on a snowboard. So, I’m baaaack!
Currently Stella is in a ski club class that goes for 7 Saturdays from 9:15-3:15, so last weekend that meant I had all day to ride with an old friend. We started boarding together 13 years ago, and it was incredibly fun to get up there together again!
