Snowboarding

I went snowboarding yesterday at Crystal Mountain. It was a morale event for the group I work in. I have been skiing all of about 3 times in my life and have never been snowboarding before. Wow, that was a lot of fun. It was not as easy as it looks. I did manage to spin and do some other fun stuff. My proudest moment was getting off the ski lift and stopping with a turn without falling. That was even more exciting than going down the mountain without falling.

I think the part I got really good at was falling. I was able to fall over backward, roll, and end up back standing on the board. It almost looked intentional ("I meant to do that"). I am really really sore today. I can't wait to go snowboarding again.

You know, that was exactly the experience I had with skiing. I loved it! Of course, you have a job where you can still work with the leg brace when you tear your MCL or even worse, ACL (and I've heard the surgery for ACL repair isn't too bad. Rehab kind of sucks though). Do lots of leg exercise if you are gonna get hooked on this one. Especially for the knee supportive muscles (especially the side ones).
