i do not ski. i cannot seem to stand on ski's without falling over ... don;t even need to be moving to fall down lol. i went skiing a few times. the last time i went, i fell a few feet after i got started and my legs were so tangled up the ski's needed to be removed before they could untangle my legs. a nice ski patrol guy took me down the mountain on the back of his snowmobile. it was a little embarassing when i got down to the bottom, cause everyone around was staring to see an injured person
i like your board. my son snowboards. he bought a pass because he goes so much. he has tried to talk me into it. i just love my view of mount rainier from my house, havent got a big desire to go there. not a fan of heights or broken bones. lol
My favorite memory of walking on Mount Rainier on vacation one day in August: it was pretty warm, and as I was walking up the path, a girl was walking down the same path. She was wearing bike shorts, a sports bra, and carrying a snowboard! It was a great introduction to high altitudes in summertime.
I love the pink board! Had my husband bought me something like that I might have tried snowboarding.
I have gone skiing several times. The last time the right boot just HURT (it was a rental) so I kept loosening it, and loosening it until finally the boot came completely off and slide down the mountain! I had to sit on my butt and scoot down to get it. It was awful. I stuck to the bunny hill after that.
We havent had the snow around here this year to even THINK about going....
cute board, i used to snowboard a little. i was on a school ski trip once and the first day we were there i hit a piece of ice and fractured my nose and couldn't bring myself to get on the hill the next 2 days or since then.
We spend the day up in the mountains a few times a year. My husband boards, I ski, my daughter started to ski when she was 7. I don't understand her though. She will do 90mph down a hill with trees in her path on two little toothpicks attached to her feet with no fear at all but she is afraid to ride a bike. My husband used to ski till he fell, we thought broke his nose, turns out no but I got a good laugh at him. I have only taken a few 'good' tumbles. Snow down the pants is a realy eye opener. ;)
Next winter we are putting both of my sons out there. They will be 7yrs and 4yrs.
Pinky Girl, have you snowboarded on Mount Hood? I've enjoyed walking on it, like on Rainier, but can't snowboard or ski at all. Like Traumamamma and some poodles, I've got kneecaps that slip off track way too easily. If it weren't for dog walks and bicycles, I wouldn't get any exercise at all!
I love to snowboard, but haven't been in a few years. Hopefully I will go when I move to WA, since there is no snow here this year. I always manage to hurt myself somehow. Over the years, I've fractured an ankle, twisted my knee, got a concussion, and I never go home with fewer than a dozen bruises. BUT, I refuse to go down the mountain on the ski patrol mobile! Even when I fractured my ankle, I refused to let them take me! That was in Mammoth. I went down a few more times and was fine, but once I took my boot off, it was hell.
