Whee! I love snowboarding!!
First day! Up at Coronet Peak today. Billy spend 2 hrs teaching me heel and toe side balance on the snowboard on the beginners slope. Then I spent another 1.5 hrs practising near the magic carpet.
After that I went up the beginners slope and then later some intermediate slopes. The snow was really slushy, which Bill and Baz disliked. But I think it made it easier to learn. Really fun day.
Matt: your snow gear works great!!
At the end of the day, calves were sore as hell from doing a lot of work they don't normally do.
Tomorrow will be interesting!
