this is a record for me. 6 hours of snowboarding in 3 days. on friday night we went to a local mountain, our first day of the season. it was super foggy, but still managed to be fun. today we went up to whistler where the weather was a bit better- clear skies at the top, foggy mid-mountain. somebody needs to come up with a colour changing goggle lense that adjusts to the light.
i took a personal risk of looking lame on the hill and learned to ride switch. i've been snowboardiing for a long time but never bothered to learn how to ride switch because i was too scared-it feels so awkward and i always catch an edge and eat shit. it's like learning how to snowboard all over again the other way. well, today with jon's help, i finally learned and it feels good to learn something new! i did eat shit a lot but i kept trying and i can link turns (slowly) now.
we waited around for sushi village to open, where we had some of our delicious favorites.
