I want to learn to snowboard!


Winter’s coming and I am thinking about our first snow that might or might not happen this week. Have you ever been snowboarding? I live in a fairly mild climate. We get snow about 3-6 times per year and it’s usually less than an inch. I, so, would love to vacation in a snowier climate and get to do the snow activities. One thing I’ve always wanted to learn was to snowboard and go snowmobiling. How fun would it be for the family to all get to pick out their snowboards.

I had to do some research since I have never been. Snowboarding is a fairly new sport. It began gaining popularity around the 1980’s when I was a teen. As I was looking at the website I noticed there are many sizes and designs to the snowboards. I loved the look of the Lucky Burns Kids beginner snowboard. As a mom of 2 boys I think they would like that to learn on those pretty red snowboards. How fun would it be to head north to Canada and learn a whole new skill set for both my boys and my daughter. Imagine how their self esteem could improve as they grasp a new sport. I can even see our kids eyes lighting up after taking lots of lessons on our new snowboards. My daughter has a very cautious personality and it might take me a few tries to get her on the snow. She must have a pink snowboard! That pink snowboard would have a better chance of getting her on the snow. She’s such a girl.

This is one activity I’d love to learn to do. A vacation to learn it would just be the icing on the cake. Do you have a sporting activity or something you’d like to learn? Would it involve taking you to another climate? I will be saving my money to take a nice vacation in the winter. We’ve never had a winter vacation. Maybe this time next year my family can learn to snowboard!
